I'm back on the #soapbox. And I'm going to be on it a long time talking up #CitizensUnited until it sinks into the brain of everyone here. If we want a HOPE of restoring the #integrity of our #elections it MUST be overturned. #DarkMoney is overriding our voices in the ballot box.
#CitizensUnited was and is the nail in the coffin to any pretense of #democracy. How do you think this #IllegitimateRegime was installed? #DarkMoney is the major culprit. Then there was the #Russian interference, #Hacking, #VoterSuppression and #Gerrymandering.
A #PerfectStorm
We lost our voices this last #election that was a #coup. #WI alone suppressed 300K votes & that's just the tip of that iceberg. Throw in the #CitizensUnited #DarkMoney of #Adelson #Kochanistan #Mercerville et al #Russians #hacking #Gerrymandering & there you go. #Democracy dies.
A little history: We tried, folks. In 2014 the #Senate voted to overturn #CitizensUnited. The @GOP filibustered. See the names of those who killed it. #BoughtAndPaidFor? YOU BET. Time to try again or we are finished as what we call America #VoteThemOut2018

There are a few ways #CitizensUnited can be overturned. #SCOTUS itself could do it, but that's not happening with this court. We could force a #ConstitutionalAmendment with the consent of 75% of the states, a tough row to hoe. OR we can try the same route as we did in 2014.
The trick? We MUST take back both the #House & #Senate with a majority. It's absolutely vital that you get off the couch & to the polls & #VoteBlueNoMatterWho in #November2018, If we don't keep the hands of the #Oligarchy out of our #elections we're done as what we call #America,

an old fairytale from 2012
The art is Arthur Rackham - Princess and Troll

The Troll’s Wife

I’ve lived, for what seems ages,
under a wooden bridge
with my constant husband.
He is a troll.
I have been enchanted, spellbound,
but no longer.
I brewed his tea with herbs of sleep
and found his magick book
and while he slept
unwove each charm
I let him bind around me.

I don’t know how this came to be,
this sorry state of wedlock.

No – that’s a lie.
I remember it well.
I was a stupid child
grown to a stupid woman,
a willing victim
never understanding there are those
who play with people:
out of ego, spite at life
or mere amusement.
I wandered blindly,
always ready to taste
the sweet but meeting only the sour.

Invoking Morpheus

The night, of late, is nothing but a blank;
no dreams are surfacing on break of day.
Is this phenomenon something to thank,
or has all inspiration gone astray?
I do not wish for nightmares to invade,
but strange it is that nothing I recall
of hours spent in Morpheus's glade,
as if beyond the purview of life's scrawl.
Oh shine a lantern, daemon god of dreams,
illuminate the secrets of the mind,
that better I will see beyond what streams
while wakeful, and there understanding find.
