Special interests buy Eric Cantor - Welcome to rule by Oligarchy

The $31,000,000 Man
  •  GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor faces a serious primary challenge next week because of immigration. 
  • But don't worry, the big guns are pouring money into Cantor's campaign to protect the coming amnesty for illegals.  All the players are there - Goldman Sachs, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Comcast Corp, Capital One Financial, Bank of America and many more.

We still hold elections, but I am not sure why.  The voters no longer have a real voice.  The corrupt Washington D.C. based special interest groups for both parties flood districts with outside cash to make sure that only "approved candidates" win elections.

On June 10, there will be House primary Virginia, where House Majority Leader Eric Cantor faces his most serious primary threat yet.

Here’s what the reports, which cover the fundraising period from April 1 to May 21, show:

Virginia’s 7th District

Cantor, whose district is located between Richmond and Charlottesville, far outraised his GOP primary opponent, college professor David Brat.

Cantor raised $449,000 in the pre-primary period, and reported $1.5 million in cash on hand.

Brat, however, raised a respectable amount — $117,000 — for a challenger in a short period of time, and he reported $84,000 in the bank.

7th Congressional District of Virginia
The modern super-sized Congressional districts have grown to an insane 700,000 people each.  Because of district size only millionaires, or those willing to sell their soul to corrupt special interest groups, have any chance to win office.
A Truly Free Election
For comparison, an election district in Britain has only 98,000 people.  Small districts encourage something called democracy, person to person campaigning and multiple political parties so voters have many real choices on election day.
Until Americans rise up and demand true election reform we are doomed to be ruled over by the special interest Elites.
