Dear Johnslat

Does this mean that we can look forward to a proper old чистка in American politics, then? Will it be televised?


Best wishes

Sasha

This whole thing makes me sick. The supreme court ruled last year that there basically are few restrictions on big money in a campaign. So billionaires like the ultra right wing Koch brothers can spend $200 million and shut down the government. Not to mention the NRA can spend $400,000 and unseat 2 Colorado legislators who voted for gun control.
I had been wondering if I had made the right decision about being a TEFLer, living overseas, but these recent events cured my homesickness. Glad I am not there.
