Haven’t the ads been particularly nauseating this year? We all knew they would be. They certainly have not disappointed in that regard. The blame doesn’t lie with either party; it lies with both parties. This is just a snipet of what’s to come. Now that the Supreme Court has allowed business to officially marry politicians (as if this hadn’t been happening already), there is nothing for them to hide anymore. There’s a strange thing occuring because of this: In a way, these ads are the most honest we’ve seen.
We get to see how corrupt our system is, first-hand. It’s SO obvious, right? The amount of coverage available has forced politicians to “sort of” admit everything they have to do to “win.” Everyone is also keenly aware of how media and business influence who wins, what laws get passed and how the structure is rigged to hinder the middle class. This is easier to see than ever before…for everyone.
