I don’t understand how a Super PAC could influence voters with so much bullshit. Don’t people check whether what they’re being told is true or not?
I mean, this isn’t the 1930s. This is the 21st century, with its Internet and Google, and America isn’t exactly a place where a Great Firewall keeps out most information.
So why this fear over the activities Super PACs do? If the citizens of the world’s foremost democracy can be hoodwinked by expensive ads and money blitzes, what hope does the rest of the world have to make democracy work?
Because that simply means democracy can be bought. Are you, dear American voter, prepared to accept the consequences of that being true?
