A Haiku - Turmoil and SuperPACs
Picture this same scene with wave runners, water skiers, speedboats, and a cluster of other fishing boats...then an ocean liner leaving them in its wake.
Motion, change, disarray, all are present in turmoil.
Will SuperPacs* change?
Not by their elected ones.
Turmoil may subside.
The aftermath stays.
Big Money is the winner.
Slander has its price.
Others did it too.
But they didn't win, these did;
Emboldened PACs stay.
Lessons learned for the next time.
"Keep the coffers full!"
The word gets around.
"House and Senate seats for sale!"
"High bidders will win!"
*Super Political Action Committees were a major factor in Election 2012 after being ruled legal by America's Supreme Court Justices. Only a new law by those who benefited could eliminate this new power derived from their benefactors. That seems far from likely.
