This is the truth that the mainstream corporate media will not address.

Washington politicians don’t give a damn about you or me. They only answer to billionaires and giant corporations. Thanks to forty years of Supreme Court decisions, American politics is no longer about the “will of We The People” – it’s only about the money.
As a result, we longer have a functioning democracy in America.
