GOP corrupts the US democratic system

 |  NCR Today

Nothing is more destructive of the American governing system today than the tens of millions being poured into state and federal electoral campaigns by a few handfuls of super invested wealthy individuals, nearly all of it in secrecy.

Why the darkness? What is there to cover but selfish greed?

The GOP minority, in another destructive act, blocked democratic principles by stopping a bill that would force disclosure of those funneling in millions to campaigns, all of it aimed at subverting the common good.
Why this obstruction?
