It's not. Baja asked if the people would just roll over. Dr. Brownstain brought up the fact that a certain percentage of people through their desire for money, who will continue to allow the government to behave as is. I am simply agreeing with him, but from the other side.
Just as a certain percentage of people are okay with living off the government, a certain percentage of people are okay with big business being bed partners with government. The Citizens United decision makes it all that much worse.
It's two options: Only care about Government when the check stops being mailed, or care alot of Government so much that you write multimillion dollar checks to get the influence you desire.... I don't know if I find welfare or the money in election more appaling...
