This really is shaping up as a pivotal election in the social and political history of the US….
And the 1% know it….
They will do anything– and spend anything– to stop President Obama’s re-election or the 99% from gaining any ground in through House and Senate elections.
They will try to take over the airways with propaganda and lies trying to drive down turnout and stomp down Democratic turnout and motivation….
And thanks to the Roberts Supreme Court and the “Citizens United” decision there is nothing we can do about it….
We are about to see if an election can truly be bought in the USA….
From the Huffington Post:
At a private three-day retreat in California last weekend, conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch and about 250 to 300 other individuals pledged approximately $100 million to defeat President Obama in the 2012 elections.
A source who was in the room when the pledges were made told The Huffington Post that, specifically, Charles Koch pledged $40 million and David pledged $20 million.
