    A Republican can never get the Unions for $200, Alex.

    [ Mandatory workplace dues campaign fund contributions. ]

    What are the deepest campaign pockets in America and a system of political party support taxation?

    In many letters exchanged between the first several Presidents of this nation, Washington through Adams expressed their concern of what would happen to our Republic if money should become the most important tool in choosing candidates for the legislation and Presidency. These “ends justifies means” candidates are quick to quote the parts of our founders’ ideas that promote “their” side, but turn away quickly from anything in those views, as well as the views of the Bible, that is not part of their partys’ platforms.
    This is a bipartisan abuse.
    Another sad aspect of allowing wealthy donors to influence the campaigns of any state they wish is jobs. Billionaires are called “Job Creators”, but when they work to get pet politicians into office, the only jobs created are printing offices, radio advertising, television advertising, and newspaper/magazine advertising. Nothing permanent is created and the paper products go to land fills and biased hirelings go to legislative offices in their states and D.C.
    It would not be hard to draw comparisons between the French Nobility just prior to the revolution and our own society. Those who have are increasingly self serving and resentful of what the founders and the Jesus the wealthy and politicians allegedly use as role models called their duty to the poor. As our society continues to decline and hopelessness and desperation rises, shootings will increase as will crime. As drought and floods continue to cause havoc with crops, food prices will rise. And the only thing the politicians of both parties seem willing to do is serve their donors, and incite their bases.
    There are lessons we could learn from history, and lessons to learn from the scientists and professors of society in our present, but as long as we insist on protecting the one to four extreme views we hold, we will never work together to fix the many things on which we agree.
    Most importantly, as long we allow the politicians and talking heads of the media to divide us and make us hateful, rude, and disrespectful to our neighbors and countrymen, we forfeit the right to call our selves, “the land of the free, and the home of the brave.”
    We must first have the courage to show each other respect.

    Where does the money go?
    Is it to the media’s stockholders?

    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 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 their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporationsor from 1%ers, don’t figure they are going to go against them and do anything for the middle class.It would be political suicide.

    Obama took money from anyone who would give it to him. . So did Romney, so did McCain. To refuse money is to try to win a prize fight with one hand tied behind you. But, Obama had a huge amount of money from donors that gave less than $100. The Republicans don’t get many small donations, because anyone who doesn’t have much money and votes Republican isn’t paying enough attention to politics to donate.

    The right wing media orchestrates its’ lies. Limbaugh says something outlandish, and the talking heads on Faux repeat it with “some people are saying” as a reference to prove it’s validity. Repeated often enough to people who watch and believe nothing that isn’t on Faux news, it becomes their reality. Consequently, they “want” what the right wing media manipulates them into wanting.

    There’s a federal law against allowing union dues to be comingled with PAC donations. I was a union treasurer for years and spent many hours preparing documents that were then audited to be sure that no money went to political causes of any kind unless the member specifically designated it for that purpose.

    Then change the process so money isn’t the primary factor. Make elections truly populist. That is, to get elected a candidate needs 50%1 votes (at a minimum) of the entire eligible voting population.
    This would mean if 45% of the eligible voters showed up at the polls nobody gets elected. You have to have 50%
    1 minimum.
    That in turn would mean that individuals and groups would have political power equal to their number of votes not equal to their cash. Politicians would stop looking at small cash rich special interests because they can’t deliver votes in quantity.
    The nice thing is fringe candidates running in a mainstream party (like Obama) could never get elected. It would be a candidate that had the broadest appeal to voters that would.

    Obama may have gotten less than 50% of the votes among all registered voters, but he got more than 50% of those that voted, and more than Mitt. Who wins?

    Too close to the truth.

    “Let go! That’s my free speech!” That quote should ‘win’ the internet, since it’s so sadly close to the truth.
