If the oceans of outside money invading Wisconsin defeat Senator Feingold, it will be one more tragic proof that our country is becoming a land that where the power is controlled by the money.
Russ Feingold is the conscience of the Senate.
He has spent a lifetime standing courageously against a corrupted system that far too ofen has turned Washington into a house of ill repute run by closed fundraisers, secret meetings, and sweetheart deals bought in backroom auctions.
Workers lose their jobs. Neighbors lose their homes. Women lose a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work. The poor lose their dignity. This dirty dance goes on because the people with the money run the show, while the people suffering the pain are left out in the cold.
Russ Feingold is the conscience of the Senate because he battles against this system. He is now under attack by outside money pouring into Wisconsin from special interests galore who want to keep the dirty system in place. Once there were two leaders who stood together in this epic battle to cleanse our system: John McCain and Russ Feingold.
Obviously I’m biased when it comes to Sen. Feingold, but the rest of the editorial is well worth a read.
