My complaints about corporations having more freedom now to fund political campaigns, has nothing to do with it always being done in the past to some extent. So why assume I am ignorant of it? You jump to conclusions with zero evidence.<quoted text>
Snore, couldn't agree more. That's why I told Mike to wake up and smell the roses. It's not like political offices just started being bought and sold the last 20 years. Goodness gracious, Joe Kennedy paid everybody and their brother to have Jack elected. You speak about it wasn't the money honey, but the power, I beg to disagree, you have to have money to get the power. Had John and Robert Kennedy not been assasinated and Ted learned to drive a little better while drunk, our country would have had 24 years of Kennedys in the WH and it would have been by payoffs.
The group you speak of is part Carnegie, Rockefeller etc all a part of the Bliderberg Group. People make lite of this group controlling not only our country's elections but other' as well, but they have the MONEY and the POWER and they do it. They practically own the world's wealth. I agree with you that our country is corrupt today as back a 100+ years ago. However, trying to ban speech by outside corportions is the least of our problems with elections, If that's the case, let's cease trade with other countries and see how well we can do by not being able to send commodities(?) made here in the U.S. just between the states. You can't tell countries our country owes money to hand over fist we'll ban your speech in our country. I think that would be like cutting your nose off to spite your face. Going back to the Bliderberg Group, old daddy Bush was in bed with the group too, so it's not just a one party group they own.
Good post Snore.
I am only wanting it to be harder for corporations to do so, and it sounds as if you are want to make it easier.
Thank you for admitting allowing corporations to fund political campaigns is to allow foreign people fund our political campaigns.
I see you feel America must allow none Americans do so, but do you agree they should? BTW I do not agree America 'must' do so due to debt.
I see no connection of campaign finance and trade. Can you articulate how that is related?
