(via The Story of Citizens United v. FEC | THE STORY OF STUFF PROJECT: SEASON 2)

Have you noticed a trend in our governments lately? Something bad will happen whether it be a disaster, bank failure, or FDA failure, and the government is oddly silent and sluggish to react. Yet, when it comes to lowering taxes or increasing incentives that help the ‘free market,’ the government knocks over anyone in its path to get this passed into legislature.

In America, my friends, this is called the Citizens vs. the FEC.

Doesn’t matter if you’re 6 or 66, this video will make sense of how big corporations are, in fact, running our country. You’ll probably get a little fired up and maybe even want to do something about it.

That’s a good thing.

If you’re really fired up, check out the rest of Story of Stuff’s videos. I love them all.
