The clash of the billionaires

A handful of billionaires are keeping major presidential candidates alive in the arena. And in the case of Newt Gingrich, one billionaire and his wife alone are doing the job.

This clash of the Titans is not to save  Argos or princess Andromeda. Simply put, it is a bazaar to wash your brain with money and  buy your votes and use it against your own interest.

Mitt Romney, for example, spent $15 million to soak the networks with relentless attacks on Newt to stop his momentum after winning South Carolina (a feat accomplished with the aid of another Titan) and  beat him in Florida!

Under these current conditions of limitless money contributions, participatory democracy is really a joke. Election is becoming like a ritual that allows us to  cheer on our “savior” and feel good every four years;  just like the World Cup does!

Real change, however, comes from the pockets of the billionaires. Their billions  can write bills and influence policy any time; election year or not.

Do  you seriously believe whoever ultimately wins the election is representing you? Or he is representing these billionaires behind his win? Does your interest and the interest of these billionaires have anything in common?

Yep! The corporate state is in.
