    And then Trump found out the magician is an immigrant and cancelled his work visa.

    We never were a democracy; we are a constitutional republic.

    What gets me the most is that even with the gerrymandering, mud slinging, lobbies, foreign influence and vote rigging, the politicians think they have a mandate.

    I have only ever truly liked exactly one politician since I passed age 18, and she was a state senate member. A few years ago, she visited a local library, and I managed to corner her afterward and asked her if she could do something about my state-run health insurance people, who simply refused to get back to me. She gave me an E-Mail address, I wrote to it, explained my problem, and one day later, these idiot insurance people called back in a virtual panic, bending over backwards asking if there was anything more they could get me. She got MY vote every time she ran after that.

    If that’s Magic Mike, how come he’s still wearing all his clothes?

    That’s where we are in the US now. Bribery is legal. Except we call it “speech.”

    I am a fiscal conservative, and I agree that lobbyists , no matter the special intrest group funding them, should be illegal. But I also think there should be a balanced budget. neither of which will ever happen.

    Also in that hat are unverifiable or unverified electronic voting and tabulating. And yes, democracy is gone.

    For a really funny take on democracy, watch the first episode of Blackadder the Third.

    Of course he can. He’s a magician.

    I sure wish he could make some of these worthless comments disappear…

    I don’t like Magic Mike the Magician. He is an evil character.

    Never darken my comic page again, you spawn of Satan and/or Cartoon-Boy!

    Pretty good summation… every attempt at political contributions  reform helps… for a few days or weeks, until the money finds another route to the campaign bank accounts. ..
