The Day Democracy Died— Long live the Oligarchy!

Wisconsin's recall election was the first major test of the New Era in American Politics. That new era began in January of 2010 when the US Supreme Court ruled in that there was to be a new class of Citizen. The political voice of transnational corporations and billionaires had a bigger say in matters of governance. We The People now means we the Transnationals. In Citizens United, the Supreme Court ruled that Corporations were entitled to equal and greater "free speech" than living humans have.

Unlike their forefathers and those of great nations like Britain before them, the new Supreme Court ruled that even though a Corporation has no life-span limit, no soul or moral compass, no single body to hold responsible, they should be able to dig deeply into their enormous coffers to pay limitless amounts of money influencing government. And now without need to disclose to whom or how much. Oligarchy, government by the few, is borne.

Yes, our vote insured they can employ scores of minions who's sole job is targeting elections and politicians, funding (and in fact launching) their candidates... as well as sabotaging the opponents through any media, mailing or underhanded method they can concoct and fund, for there is no longer any accountability or tracabililty either. They can run ads that polarize a candidate they don't like and make it look like it was the candidate who authorized it... sound like Constitutionally protected free speech to you?It must if you voted to for retaining th status quo.

Your vote to continue this billionaire corporate agenda sealed the fate of this nation to a new world order.... Congratulations. We the people no longer have the ability to speak up in a system controlled by multinational corporations who are now equals to each of us in rights, and freedoms... oh except you also gave them immunity from paying any taxes or having any rules or regulations to govern their behavior....

So lets all enjoy the air, water, resources and climate while we can.... or simply declare ourselves an entity like General Electric who can pay no taxes, trash the environment and taxpayers to clean it up. We can extract resources without compensating the the peoples who rightfully own it... and own any media outlet that might have a chance to actually report the facts.

For it is now illegal to enter a business whether as an employee or concerned citizen, and take any pictures or describe any improprieties (whistlebowers) as it infringes upon that multinational's newly given rights... This while it is now okay that your phone conversations, emails, financial records and your every location can be tracked traced and recorded by these same companies —all under the protection of law.

A few of America’s most notorious oligarchs – including the Koch and the DeVos Families (Big Energy & Amway) billionaires – as well as countless transnational corporations—who do most of their business here and keep their profits outside the US, are apparently okay to funnel millions to elect their candidates and pass their laws.

Thanks to an irrational and likely illegal Supreme Court ruling, we have moved into an era of oligarch-run politics. As much as $40 million of oligarchy money was spent in Wisconsin in a handful of local races – a testing laboratory for strategies that will now be used against Democrats nationwide in 2012.

And so now we enter the battle of the oligarchs over the next fifteen or so months. Perhaps you thought the politicing was bad for the recall... brace yourself, the 2012 elections are gonna make you pray for an Alberta Darling/Sandy Pasch commercial.

As the old saying goes, when the elephants fight, the mice get trampled. In this case, the mice is democracy itself.

America is now – as proven by Wisconsin – just a few steps from a totally corrupted, totally billionaire- and transnational-controlled political system. The Citizens United election experiment is over, and the oligarchs won. Long live the oligarchy. Three cheers for the Wisconsin voters who with the stroke of a pencil, ended 230 years of an experiment in a Representative Democratic Republic. Hooray for the new Transnational Oligarchy... enjoy.

And if you're interested to see how its all going to turn out... take a look at England, the middle East, the horn of Africa and hundreds of other places today, where the separation of classes is turning into riotous masses... Tonight, in several of the greatest cities in the world, society is ripping itself apart. London's burning... Israel is roiled in turmoil from within, Italy, France, Ireland, Spain... all are rising up against the power that happens when societies are separated into classes.... united we stand... divided... we will be conquered.

It is with a heavy heart that bears witness to such divisive propaganda clouding the souls, eyes and judgment of so many, who's decision will likely bring about our darkest days here on Earth. Devastation and destruction on a global scale at the hands of a select few who've used power and corruption to quell the only nation capable of stopping the madness. And it all started here in Wisconsin... last week.
