The Red Lily, Anatole France

…For the poor it consists in sustaining and preserving the wealthy in their power and their laziness. The poor must work for this, in presence of the majestic quality of the law which prohibits the wealthy as well as the poor from sleeping under the bridges, from begging in the streets, and from stealing bread…

Missouri campaign finance law is majestic in the sense that it allows each and every one of us to contribute $2,500,0000.00 to the candidate or political action committee of our choice.

Today, at the Missouri Ethics Commission:

It’ll never end until he runs out of money. And that’ll never happen.
