Hounds from Hell — Billionaires and this Election

How did we get to this point where a small handful of billionaires can try to buy their own government and thereby, try to own our country.

This short video (8 minutes) sets the scene. It is a visual look back at that awful USSC "Citizens United (5-4)" ruling.

Then, the rest of the (continuing) story updated here (13 minutes).

So, I ask, "Are we a coin-operated democracy, or are we what we profess to be: a representative democracy where the majority rules, each vote counts, and people, not corporations matter like people are supposed to count and matter?"

Not a hard question to answer at all is it.
