RFK Jr: Democracy Under Assault

BPR Quote of the Day:

“American democracy is under assault…..

The senators and congressmen (the Super PACS) fund and elect are not representing the United States—they are representing Koch and its oil industry cronies, Big Pharma, and the Wall Street banksters currently mounting a hostile takeover of our government.

I have no problem characterizing these corporate-centric super-PACs as treasonous.  We are now in a free fall toward old-fashioned oligarchy; noxious, thieving and tyrannical.”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
