Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

“We, the Corporations….”

That’s how the recent House recitation of the U.S. Constitution might have begun.  I note that it’s the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United decision, giving corporations the status of people and, as President Obama noted, opened “the flood gates for special interests” in U.S. elections.  The decision almost certainly guarantees Republican majorities in congress forever, making America effectively a one-party state.
