Haven't we all noticed the millions or billions of dollars being poured into the election campaigns? Is it just coincidence that, in the first real election since the United States Supreme Court messed up in Citizens United, very wealthy financiers are trying to buy the election? I think not.
I, for one, am appalled at the power these rich people are trying to wield over our democracy, at the expense of ordinary citizens. Hopefully, soon, we citizens will vote to enact a new constitutional amendment declaring corporations are not people and paying money to attempt to buy politicians is not free speech.
In the meantime, those in Missouri, please vote no on Amendment 3 to stop billionaires and politicians from buying our Judiciary. Missouri has the best judicial selection procedure in the nation, in effect for more than 70 years and copied by more than 30 states. Keep the Gold Standard "Missouri Plan" in place. VOTE NO ON AMENDMENT 3!!!!
