The blocks to publicly financed elections

Money does not equal free speech. Has it ever? Even in the misty-probably-misinterpreted or shallowly interpreted Founding Fathers' era, I don't believe Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton et al conisdered it so. Then we had the resurgent right put in the right-wing dolts we have now in the SCOTUS.

I was hopin' it would work....

Beliefnet Daily Hindu Wisdom - 021908 -

"The body will be turned by the power of the spiritual consciousness into a true and fit and perfectly responsive instrument of the Spirit."

-Sri Aurobindo

I used to believe that too, but found out one can't heal bodymind traumas and "wounds", etc. holes., from above, not just by something in the vein of "bathing it in The Spiritual Love-Light" irradiating it, so to speak. Only that is not enough, unfortunately.
