Thanks, Citizens United!

Here's a cool headline: "Koch-backed network aims to spend nearly $1 billion on 2016 elections."

How neat for them! How neat for ALL OF US! It's so terrific that these conservative shitlords have all that money, and that they're willing to spend it on buying elections in an ostensible democracy, and that the Supreme Court paved the way for them to do so. Congratulations, rich people!

If I had a billion dollars, well, I'd use it to try to lobby to close the loophole that let me spend a billion dollars on an election. But, if that didn't work, I'd give a billion dollars to the first candidate to advocate a universal basic income of slightly or significantly more than the social minimum.

What would you use your billion dollars for?!
