    As long as the voters keep sending these jerks back to Congress the situation isn’t likely to change much. It would be nice to elect someone who really is interested in making the county better rather than getting re-elected.

    Yes indeed. It would be very nice. Unfortunately, those people don’t run for office very often. And, when they do, the other type floods the media with heavy duty nasty negative ads that scare the voters from voting for the better candidate. Not to mention the republican voting machines without a paper trail to recount and verify the ballots.

    It’s only going to grow worse considering a couple of recent supreme court decisions.

    And, they are going to keep right on doing it until we stop them. We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class.
    We all need to know who is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever who is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty. If the candidate is getting his money from small donors or from unions, he is going to be working for the middle class. If his donations are from corporations or 1%er, don’t figure he is going to go against them and do anything for the middle class. It would be political suicide.

    Is this cartoon about the 1 BILLION DOLLARS Obama spent on his campaign in 2012 and where it came from?

    The problem is that it’s very hard to find those, and when found, even harder to get them elected. It takes money to get elected, and if it isn’t coming from the corporations because they know they won’t get a return on it, it has to come from somewhere. Alan Grayson, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren have pulled it off — but one’s in a tiny state which takes less money to get elected in the first place; one managed to talk her opponent into refusing corporate money and evening the score, and the third has the best full-time staff of fundraisers going looking for money from the small contributors, the ones who don’t look for any return except good government, that’s ever been put together. Yes, they’ve proven it’s possible, but it’s an uphill climb.

    Most of both parties are owned by the corporations. It’s easier to bring in a candidate who won’t be so owned through the Democratic Party than the Republican Party, not because the former is a better bunch of people (they aren’t particularly), but because they’re less tightly organized, so it’s easier to get in someone who doesn’t fit the usual mold there. That’s all.

    Seriously? Who was that? Who would seriosly say that they would be “interested in making the country better” and actually mean it and keep a straight face.
