Who calls the shots in America? Is it the nation's citizens, via their duly-elected representatives - OR is it un-elected individuals and entities like Grover Norquist, the NRA, the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, et. al.?
The NRA effort to blackmail Democrats in the House into voting for the contempt citation against A.G. Holder was successful in "persuading" 17 so-called "Democrats" to vote with the Republican fanatics ... SCOTUS struck down Montana's 100-year-old "Copper Kings" law outlawing huge corporate political contributions ... Mitt Romney and most Republican politicos are afraid to cross Grover Norquist ... The U.S. Chamber pours tons of $$$$ into local, state, and national campaigns without having to disclose motives or sources ... This goes on and on ... So WHO runs this country anyway?
