An early 2010 decision by the U.S. Supreme eliminated limits on campaign donations from corporations. This decision lead to corporations declaring holy war on incumbent Democrats. Big corporations spent HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS on Republican campaigns, mostly through secret "non-profit" organizations and 527 groups. With the help of these unlimited corporate donations, the G.O.P. outspent Democrats 10 to 1. Unfortunately for America, the 2010 Election will go down in history as the nasiest and most expensive mid-term election ever (so far.)
The Corporate Jihad in 2010 lead to the Republicans gaining a controlling majority interest in Congress and an increased minority share of the Senate. The only real winner in this election was the media and advertising firms.
