For once I agree with something that you have alluded to. That being that politicians can all to often be bought. Money does buy influence/favors.<quoted text>
Agreed, but then Clinton was just being a dog, where Newt tried to set himself up as a pillar of what traditional family values should be. Also, did you know that the Koch brother oil billionaires had a direct hand in penning The Contract with America?
It's a shame that SCOTUS has time after time ruled 1st amendment rights concerning 'political contributions' & increased what I call Graft even tho there are other more legitimate names.
Sadly, SCOTUS has made much of it legal & every party takes advantage of it.
