Given the current state of a U. S. political system that has been corrupted nearly beyond redemption, Corrupta Imperium (Corrupt Government) is dedicated to the notion that truth, sunlight and a sense of humor might just help make the phrase “honest government” something more than an insider joke.
Irrespective of party affiliation, those interests that are euphemistically characterized as “Special” are, without equivication, the source from which virtually all political power emenates. The “Citizens United” decision has profoundly altered an already slippery landscape that is now dramatically accelerating into a consolidated system of unrestrained influence, controlled by a truly national cabal of private wealth and corporate and union interests that are supported by the ongoing access, money and operational infrastructure of “Big Lobby.”
That our elected representatives complicit in this charade of democracy and will do all in their power to maintain it is beyond dispute. Once attained, those possessed of the power and trust we bestow on them jealously conduct themselves in ways that clearly demonstrate that above all else in their lives, ongoing re-election and the need for the money and support to accomplish that goal, is fundamental to all that drives them. As participant creatures in this grotesque comedy our representatives function as “troops on the ground” and frontmen for those whose interests they serve.
While our Founding Fathers imagined a truly representative republic, it is reasonably certain that it wasn’t their intent to narrow the base of representation to those who could pay the most. Regretablly, the system is rigged and there’s really not much we can do about it.
