Robert Mercer and David Koch are the real enemies of Democracy--not Comey

As I pointed out in a reply to someone else, any civil servant or law enforcement leader is going to find it very difficult to navigate in our hyper partisan scorched earth political environment brought about by the disgusting billionaires like Richard Mellon Scaife, David Koch, Robert Mercer and Sheldon Adelson.

It is the fact that these people were able to continually seed our government with the worst of the worst that has brought us the insane and amoral Citizens United ruling which has further fueled our demise as a democratic republic.

Comey served for years without issue, and now we're lambasting him because of the crazy environment he was forced to deal with including rogue FBI offices full of die hard conservatives with an agenda.

4. They became billionaires in this democratic republic...

so I don't get why they spend their time trying to change everything, unfortunately not for the better. They now have their tax cuts which is one of their main goals. They have enough money to last them many lifetimes. Time to rid the country of their influence so we can be of the people, by the people, for the people, the way it was meant to be.

6. Strongly agree

with you! I have ordered Comey's book and look forward to reading it. I truly hope the book sales will be record-breaking.

Surprisingly, I just recently discovered I went to high school with Robert Mercer in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I did not know him though and he is apparently incredibly intelligent---too bad he uses it for such nefarious purposes.

10. Yes and no - dig deeper.

The system that produces that much concentrated private wealth and power is the real enemy of democracy.

The wealthy owner class is the one currentlyndistorting and bastardizing our once great system.
