Children long have been taught by their parents that anyone in America can grow up to be president. Today that message needs to be revised: anyone can grow up to be president if they are willing to circumvent and break the nation's anti-corruption campaign finance laws, and are willing to genuflect before the nation's wealthiest individuals.
The money race causes politicians to lose touch with the people they were elected to represent and to push for policies that serve only their campaign donors. We all know that our democracy functions best when our laws are written by the best people for the job, not the ones who can raise the most money.
Future generations will look back at this election and either say that we defeated Citizens United by electing a man serious about defeating the Court's decision, or succumbed to the grip of corporations by voting against the interests of our democracy. America's democracy is in dire need of an honest man.
