Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) introduced a constitutional amendment to the U.S. House on Thursday that would overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling in Citizens United v. the Federal Elections Commission.

“Because of the decision by the Supreme Court majority in the Citizens United case, more money was spent on campaigns in the 2010 election than has ever been spent in a mid-term election,” Kucinich said.  “Because of the Citizens United case, more money will be spent ithe 2012 elections than has ever been spent in an election in the history of our country. Because of the Citizens United case, American democracy has been put up on the auction block.”

Let me just say, I *like* Dennis Kucinich, he fights the good fight. But he makes the same mistake *EVERY* liberal makes, and that is not recognizing that the United States Empire is a Plutocracy. It was founded as such and has always been such.

Our nation was founded by a group of racist power-elites for the sole purpose of exploiting the new worlds wealth potential without having to pay a foreign power for the privilege.

Nothing will change until the entire system is dismantled and every Oligarch is shot dead in the street.
