Toxic ads designed to make voters stay home

Jim Hightower writing at alternet.org provides a few astronomical numbers showing how the SCOTUS ruling on campaign cash is wrecking our democracy.  Money is speech and those with more money determine the speech and consequently the issues at stake in our electoral campaigns.  Hightower views that as turning off voters and suppressing turnout.  See today's post about Garrecht-Gassen's column for reasons to get out of the house and vote.
