DARK MONEY, a political thriller, examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana--a front line in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide--to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impact of the US Supreme Court's Citizens United decision. Through this gripping story, DARK MONEY uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold. This Sundance award-winning documentary is directed/produced by Kimberly Reed (PRODIGAL SONS) and produced by Katy Chevigny (E-TEAM).

What is a Democracy?
17 December 2018 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

I have the right to acquire as much money as I want. I do not like taxes. Regulations, especially government, are a burden. Less is better. Medicare, especially ACA (Obamacare) is socialism forcing people to have coverage or me to help foot their bills. National Parks should be reduced & development allowed. Environmental regulations are too costly & restrictive. We are a Christian country. I did support state's rights, but no longer. Gun regulation - no! Not likely I'll be adversely affected anyway. What am I? A Democrat or Republican? (Hint: While in H.S. I shook hands w/Barry Goldwater founder of Republican conservatism.)

I belong to Americans for Job Security; Center to Protect Patient's Rights; American Future Fund; Americans for Responsible Leadership; Americans for Prosperity; Americans for Tax Reform: Freedom Partners. I am a Koch brother and we funded well over $200 million to get what we want. We bought our own media sources; we elected politicians; sympathetic judges appointed; enacted legislation that benefits us, other corporations & fellow 1%. One of our biggest purchases was US Supreme Court judges who, through Citizens United (aka us) allowed our (and other) corporations unlimited funding of candidates w/no disclosure of who we are. After all a corporation has the same rights as a person. We even had state disclosure laws (e.g. 100 yr old Montana law) overturned thus allowing any outside (including foreign governments) to fund an election; no regulation whatsoever. We even went after moderate Republicans who didn't buy into our program.
