Yes Citizen. I said that it was a last ditch by the plutocracy - meaning the already existing, well established 1% that controls everything giving us the illusion of freedom while they've systematically transferred all the wealth and power into their hands over the past 40 years.
Even if we had publicly funded elections and free airtime for political candidates on TV, thanks to Citizens United the 1% could still spend tiny fractions of their amassed fortunes to make us believe black was white.
So yes, it's already too late. Right there with ya.
