Spain, like Greece, the Netherlands, Portugal, the United States, etc. all share the same problem. Their major political parties are in the pockets of Finance.

Spaniards want a re-vamping of what passes for democracy. They get that banksters and financiers run government. Americans haven't yet grasped it. .Of course, we haven't fully implimented austerity yet to suck the remainder of U.S. middle class wealth into bank vaults and financier pockets as they are doing in Europe. That comes after the Nov. elections.

Whether Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum wins in Nov., the results will be the same....just as they are in Europe.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
