    Not if the will of the American people comes together and gets "citizens united " overturned.

    Constitution tells about 1 person 1 vote!

    About one person, one vote? Shouldn’t that be exact? Maybe not to the Dem’s cuz sometimes the dead vote. So then it could be in your mind about 1.1 or 1.2 persons per 1 vote.

    This is a free market society. When everything else is supposed to go to the highest bidder, why not public office, political power, and the law? Since the Free Market can do no wrong, and requires no regulation, in a society where everything has its price, and money is the measure of everything, then why even pretend to the old-fashioned nonsense about people mattering? Catering to what the people want, what the people need? That is rank Socialism!


    Everything the government does requires money, and if I pay twice as much in taxes as you do, then I should have twice the say that you do. If I want to buy a bigger say and you’re not willing to spend your money that way, or if you have been too imprudent to accumulate as much money as I have, then that’s just too bad!

    Out with the socialist, left-wing nonsense about 1 man, 1 vote. The new standard should be 1 dollar, 1 vote. The golden rule: those who provide the gold, make the rules. That’s what free enterprise is all about! That’s the True American Way!


    NB: Warning: Parody. But really, not far from the essence of some conservative philosophy.

    And we all know the saints that make up the Republican Party would never ever do anything of questionable integrity. Just look at their perfect record in Washington.

    Not even close to true. And, frankly, nowhere near the threat to democracy that Citizens United is. We’re headed the way of the Roman Republic.

    Don’t be such a fool. Do you honestly think the Republicans haven’t consistently cheated on votes – probably more than Dems. I KNOW when I lived in the south, poll workers sometimes looked at the ballots and tossed the ones they didn’t like. ’Course, that was in the old days before they came up with electronic voting machines that the bosses just tampered with to fix the elections. And funny enough, the Republican always won.

    A measly million to a multibillionaire is like paying one dollar out of a thousand+ that you still have.

    Thats funny, because, the only fraud I’ve seen is CONservative “activist” james o’keefe and his buddies voting as dead people and illegal voters. And those SOBs was dumb enough to film it.

    I have to agree. A politician voting pro-business isn’t necessarily in the pocket of business. That’s a smart politician that recognizes that looting corporations to buy votes from the masses only leads to those corporations disappearing and leaving those same masses without jobs.

    Mr. Obama along with Reid and Pelosi thought that they could loot corporations with impunity. Like little truffle pigs they kept going back to the same source to fill their insatiable need for vote buying cash that they dole out to the stupid and the lazy. Now the jobs market has completely dried up and Mr. Obama’s appologists keep telling us it would be even worse if he hadn’t robbed the productive to pay the indolent.

    This country will begin to improve when we stop allowing the mentally and physically capable people to sit around for 99 weeks demanding the rest of the workforce carry them. They will only go back to work when they run out of Benefits, Savings, and the ability to live in their parent’s basement.

    I concede that there a small group of people that society should support either because they are mentally or physically infirm. But there should be a horrible stigma attached to it so that anyone who can work will.

    There are plenty of jobs out there but you are going to have to be willing to move to where those jobs are and you are going to have to be willing to work. Even my Brother-in-Law a drunken idiot was able to get a job in North Dakota. He’s not terribly bright but he works hard and he commands a middle class income.

    Don’t look now, but I think I saw those same cuff links on Richard Trumka.
