Letters to the Editor

America now for sale to the highest bidder

"American elections for sale; foreign money is welcome. No offer refused as long as funds are available through non-traceable electronic transfer. Contributors are guaranteed immediate access to American congressmen, who will sell out their states' interests for the right price. Contact Karl Rove at American Crossroads, 1-800-US4-SALE." This is sad but true thanks to the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. Unlimited money from foreign countries, corporations and even terrorists can and will influence American elections. We will have no way of knowing where the money is coming from and what they expect to get in return for their contributions. The floodgates have now opened and our democracy is very much at risk. Think about this when you cast your vote Tuesday. Maggie Morse Bluffton
