Of course it impacts us in every way imaginable. While Clinton was screwing everybody he at least didn't make a point of inciting Iraq the way Bush did who couldn't wait till the day after his innauguration to bomb Baghdad and get us all riled up.
We are citizens of this country after all...and our votes are routinely swamped by those who have a lot more money than we...or most of the electorate has. This business of calling it freedom of expression to load millions onto politicians so they can afford to spread their vacuous messages into every corner of our arses is a big joke.
It's a start, but we need to fund campaigns entirely from tax payer contributions...just as we could use some real representation with our taxation by allowing each of us to pick and choose which programs we want our money to go to. Some would want it all for Defense, while significant numbers would want it earmarked for Health and Education.
Me...I'd spend it on ladies and boys of the night...just to keep the Catholic Church off of young children. Stella...YOU send them in for re-tooling.
