Subject: The Supreme Court disaster

Securities and Exchange Commission

Dear Commission,

Thanks to the Supreme Court's disastrous Citizens United decision please count me out of our glorious self-governing process. My opinions, visions and contributions mean nothing to monopolies, mega wealthy individuals or dominant corporations who covertly purchase and privatize our United States elected representatives, while our cherished republic has done well to protect their special monetary interest. After 9-11, I became a second class citizen. After Citizens United I became a third class citizen. Please do your job, there's a lot of work to do and wounds to heal. We the meek need to be left alone to provide your service at least until these polluted elections laws have been reversed and the contribution (voice) of a blue-class human being is full again. A "sad" and Supreme disaster.
