If you have read my little blog at least once, then you know that I have not really been impressed with our government’s effort to run in a competent and intelligent way.

Well, it seems that I am not the only one pissed off. Dylan Ratigan (Host of MSNBC’s ‘The Dylan Ratigan Show’ and Author of the soon to be released ‘Greedy Bastards’) is using his media time to promote a new effort to get the money out of politics.

Fact: 94% of all elected politician in the USA, are the one who received the most money.

Mr. Ratigan has launched a new website (which immediately crashed when he announced it on his show today) called:

http://www.getmoneyout.com/

He also wrote about it in HuffPo:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dylan-ratigan/get-money-out-join-100000_b_983427.html

The GetMoneyOut.com site is trying to sign up as many people as possible for support for the following Constitutional Amendment:

“No person, corporation or business entity of any type, domestic or foreign, shall be allowed to contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any candidate for Federal office or to contribute money on behalf of or opposed to any type of campaign for Federal office. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, campaign contributions to candidates for Federal office shall not constitute speech of any kind as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution or any amendment to the U. S. Constitution. Congress shall set forth a federal holiday for the purposes of voting for candidates for Federal office.”

Stunt?
Now, this could be just Dylan drumming up an empty rhetoric machine to increase viewership on his program, but I don’t think so.

He seems as pissed of as I am about the politicians in Congress and the White House; who sell their souls, drop their pants and spread their cheeks for any company with $50k or more who will contribute to their election campaigns.

It’s sick, and will reduce this great nation to a 3rd world dictatorship with no morals, ethics or a care about anything – except the large multinational corporation’s and global bank’s profit margins.

I remember that in 1984, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Regan ran against each other for President of the United States. Do you know who much money they each raised from corporate donors and PAC’s? ZERO!!! None, nada, zilch, 0.

Now it costs $500+million dollars to win the White House, and in 2012 that number should hit $1 F-ing Billion!!!!!

Joke’s On Us
It’s bad enough that these jokers we call our politicians are moving their mouths and saying things that they don’t believe in, in order to keep their jobs.

But watching the political debates in congress on banking reform, healthcare, the budget, the debt and on the EPA – it is so clear that before most of our politicians vote in Congress; they go find a closet so that the corporations who paid for them to get elected (or those corporation’s lobbyists) can molest them in private. As the gas lobbyist grunts from behind, “Oh, Senator, we know you really want to vote for gas fracking in the town where you live. Right?”

And who are these companies, lobby groups and banks? Americans? Maybe in name, but the reality is that many of them are multinationals and or foreign governments who own some or all of them.

If the large “non-political” multinational fortune 100 companies could dictate American politics, then they would get rid of any environmental, business, anti-trust and banking regulations. They would get rid of any pension, union, fair trade and health requirements. They would also reduce the business tax rate to zero. It sounds like today’s Republican Party in general, don’t it. The Business party. The Democrates are not innocent, plenty of them are selling their soul’s in the money closet as well.

  1. I agree with all of it,Whatever you do DON’T remove the pictures.After all with the cuts in eduction people who can’t read might consider why ‘A picture is worth a 1,000 words’ Mr Ratigan, you are not alone,I’m proud to say thats who I am too!!!

  2. Boehnor and his cronies will do anything to destroy the Obama Admin. and bring back the lawless robbery of our treasury that happen under the Bush Admin. And the tea party are nothing but flunkies for the rich and they don’t even know it. I just hope that this country will wake up and remove from office the people responsible for bringing this great country down and get us on the right track. Boehnor, the tea party and Mitch O’Connell need to be retired from office for trying to destroy America. I’m with you Dylan, 100%.

    • You want to take the money out of politics, start with term limits for Supreme Court Justices. Look at the people Bush put on the Supreme Court, it all started there for big money, pushed by the Koch brothers to put their people on the court..Roberts, Thomas and Alito all work for the the right and as long as these people run the court the 99% will suffer. You want a place too start changes start with removing these one sided judges from destroying this great country. Then we can start with the lobbyist who now own Congress.

  3. The people need to return this goverment back to the people the way our founding fathers intended it to be. Its high time that a grass roots movement to do so has finally emerged. My hats off to Mr. Ratigan and all those who initiated this process.

  5. your right on, money has corrupted the pollitics. Furthermore our elected officals are being disengenuis to there constituants. Our system is now a joke and the American people have suffered, and continue to do so

  6. no one talks about manufactring jobs in this country all of our factory jobs are off shore,because of low pay. The big boys get it made for pennys and sell for big bucks hear at home. The U.S. cannot make it as a service economy bring our jobs back home.

    • I think that the only way for the USA to bring back manufacturing job, is to impliment tariffs on good from countries that place tariffs on American made goods – say like China. Oh wait, China’s lobbyists have bought off our politicians, and hold all our debt… so I guess that will not work.

    • Was, and say was Journey Machinist for over 25 years after my apprenticship, doing work for B+W Navy Nuclear among other. Cann’t even find a job that pays what i was making as apprentice in 1985. Went into healthcare for Homecare Company, after being Service Manager for 8yrs couldn’t take how they where not treating patients the right way. I now start my own antique business. Love it, but never had the chance to show many young folk’s the hard work, but sense of making something in a machine shop. We have 1/3 of our kids not graduating from high school, they used to Vo. Tech in high school’s. Hell doesn’t matter the ability to move to middle class by taking that route has been sent to Communist China . (SEMPER FI) (ALWAYS FAITHFUL)

  7. I was eager to participate. When I saw your crude cartoons and read your equally crude comments, I had second thoughts. Please remove the offensive language and cartoons so I and others like me can participate. Thanks for your efforts to get the outrageous spending out of our federal government. Also, I am a Democrat, but I don’t think there is only one party which is taking the money as your picture of Speaker of the House Boener(sp) suggests. Again, thanks for spotlighting one of the largest problems plaguing our republic.

    • Actually, my photo of Boehner is more about how politicians in general will do anything for attention, just like they would do anything for money. Sorry about the challenging and emotional language, but that is who I am.

      • Hi Pusz,
        Did you ever wonder how any of the Congress Critters became prostitutes?
        What the Founders required in their Constitutional Corporate contract of all who desired to prostitute themselves to this contract and enforce it’s laws and warrenties, was to sware an oath to uphold and
        defend it.
        The Exiled Chattle Class as Emmigrants in Chains discloses were excluded,exploited and reduced to 3/5 of a person in the census of the times. Yet it was this group and their descendants that still sing the mantra ofJobs,Jobs,Jobs
