The New Price of American Politics
And the new era of big money has just begun. Jim Bopp, its intellectual architect, believes this is a good thing - the more money, the better, he says.
You may be one of those people who believe there is too much money in politics. (Polling suggests there are many such people—a vast majority of Americans, in fact.) You may believe that the larger the financial contribution, the greater the chance it will corrupt your representative in Congress, or even your president. You may believe that there are too many political advertisements on television, too many groups with blandly patriotic names trying to change your mind about energy or Medicare or national defense. You may even believe that the nation’s founders would be repelled by the idea of corporations and billionaires pouring millions of dollars into political campaigns. It is reasonable—it is quite respectable—to believe these things.Full Story

The founding fathers would be appalled by these right wing treasonous vermin! Big money campaigns will corrupt our government in favor of the few.

Can you say that Obama has UNITED Americans to work together during this economic crisis?
Do you admire a President who goes on TV shows and talks on the radio with PIMP WITH A LIMP?

If you think Romney is going to repeal Obamacare you are delusional.
During the Primaries the biggest selling point Romney was pushing was the repeal of Obamacare. During his RNC speech and latest ads, Romeny now wants to "repeal and replace" Obamacare.
This is the same crap the Dems pulled with the Patriot Act. Bitched and screamed, threw out the constitution, yelled about how unconstitutional it is (and rightfully so), but, as soon as they got power, they extended and expanded every provision to an indefinte end date. Then they called it their own.
So you keep thinking that Romney will repeal it. Not going to happen. He will probably sign an executive order putting a Stay on it, might change a couple of things and then release it and call it his own.
1 snake 2 heads. Republicans and Democrats.

Romney refuses to tell anyone who is bankrolling his campaign. Why would I vote for someone who can't be transparent about his finances....personal, business and political? If he'd be sneaky with THAT money, he'd be sneaky with taxpayer money.
