To The Daily Sun,
We don't live in a democracy anymore. Billionaire celebrities, millionaire CEOs and zillionaire SuperPac donors have made a mockery of this election. Is it no coincidence that months after the Koch brothers announce that they will donate $900 million to GOP candidates that there were suddenly 17 of them each wanting a piece of the pie? I think not.
Big money donors have bought our representatives. They're sold, and they'll say anything to get your vote so they can ignore you for four more years and while they turn Washington, D.C., into the largest profit center for corporations in the world.
With your tax money.
I'm sick of it. I'm more than sick, I'm angry about it. I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore. You might not know this, but there is one candidate who is running solely to fix this broken system. It's his only goal, because you know deep in your heart that whatever platform your favorite candidate is selling ain't gonna happen until we fix democracy first.
I'm supporting Larry Lessig for president. If you agree with me, you should, too.
