    I'm Worth More than You Are (According to SuperPACs)

    I feel pretty strongly about this whole SuperPAC thing, about the way that money in politics has so dramatically bastardized the election process.

    Long ago it was "one person/one vote," but now it seems to be "one dollar/one vote." 

    According to this NPR video (full credit where credit is due), it's not even that anymore... Seems that I'm worth over $5.00 because I live in New Hamphsire.  Only Nevada's denizens are worth more than I am and, if you're in California, you're worth pretty much nothin'. 

    Don't believe me?  Watch...

     

     

    There isn't much more to say except this one thing....

    I'm kinda pissed off about it.  Are you?
