Dear A.M. Costa Rica:
Kudos on your about face. My only question is, what took you so long?
This is a very interesting time.
With widespread social media taking on a hefty role in bypassing traditional forms of news media, the public is beginning to demand change from government(s) The 40+ year failed drug policy is a case in point.
How this plays out, will have a lot to do with whoever wins the upcoming presidential election. Hopefully you will have gotten over your malady of “republicanitis” and endorse Bernie Sanders for president.
The Republicons are obviously employees of the corporate plutochracy, while Bernie is willing to stand up for “people.” He has publicly stated that his biggest priority if elected is repealing Citizens United.
It has become obvious that the direction the country is going in, has taken it out of the parameters that the founding fathers had in mind, and laid out in the Constitution, and Bill of Rights.
The time for believing in the old two-party system is over. It’s time for people to start voting based on issues, which you now seem to have come to realize.
Editor’s note; Citizens United, 558 U.S. 310, is the U.S. Supreme Court decision that stops the government from restricting political expenditures by non-profit corporations.
