More Americans believe in witchcraft and ghosts than the Citizens United decision

5 posts / 0 new

A new survey by the Brennan Center for Justice shows just how out of touch the five right-wingers on the Supreme Court are. According to the survey – 69% of Americans reject the Supreme Court’s Conservative argument that unlimited corporate spending in our elections won’t lead to corruption.

On the other hand, only 15% of Americans believe the Supreme Court ruled correctly in its Citizens United case. To put that in perspective – 34% of Americans believe in ghosts, 23% have actually seen a ghost, and 19% believe in witchcraft.

That’s right – more Americans believe in witchcraft and ghosts than believe in the Citizens United decision.

I would like to see a poll on how many people actually know what the Ruling for Citizen United really says and how much thier opinions are based on the Mis-information put out by pundits.

We Need to Listen to the Founders and Stop the Forever War.

Just a little over a year ago during his speech at the National Defense University here in Washington, D.C., President Obama talked about winding down Bush’s War on Terror. But as American bombers continue to strike against ISIS in Iraq and now Syria, it now looks like the War on Terror will be with us for years to come. And that’s a really dangerous thing for our democracy.
