They get it from Wall Street who owns most of Washington DC.
You and I are NOT represented.....
Affluent industries get behind Dem candidates
WASHINGTON Democrats seeking the White House are raising significantly more money than Republicans this year from the industries that provide the most cash to presidential contenders — including Wall Street executives who traditionally have given to the GOP, a campaign-finance analysis shows.
The major Democratic candidates have collected nearly $81 million from the employees and political action committees of the 20 employment sectors that contributed the most money during the first six months of the year, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data compiled by the non-profit Center for Responsive Politics. In contrast, Republicans raised $47 million.
Overall, Democrats have raised more money than GOP candidates in 15 of the top 20 sectors, ranging from law firms to insurance companies.
The industries where Republicans have an advantage include accounting and manufacturing, but not Wall Street.

Do people ever really fall for your rationalizing bullshit? lol I find you absolutely hilarious. A true ObaMORON!
Maybe you could rationalize and justify Nancy Pelosi's fuzzy Obamacare math that the cost has now magically TRIPLED for tax payers and Slick Willy Clinton's fuzzy surplus math that claimed he left a surplus. Our country has not had a surplus in 54 years. Now that is magic and fuzzy as hell, wouldn't you agree? lol You keep watching and getting your facts from cartoons but here in the real world...
You are a cartoon but shhh, your secret is safe with us!

Greenspan Concedes He `Found a Flaw' in His Free-Market Ideology
Oct. 23 (Bloomberg)-- Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, under a grilling from lawmakers at a congressional hearing today, conceded a flaw in his free-market ideology that contributed to a ``once-in-a-century credit tsunami.''
``Yes, I found a flaw,'' Greenspan said in response to questions from to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.``That is precisely the reason I was shocked because I'd been going for 40 years or more with very considerable evidence that it was working exceptionally well.'' http://tinyurl.com/5ea9ng
Greenspan said he was ``partially'' wrong in his opposition in recent years to the regulation of derivatives. He said in a May 2005 speech that ``private regulation generally has proved far better at constraining excessive risk-taking than has government regulation.''
Committee Chairman Henry Waxman, a California Democrat, said Greenspan had ``the authority to prevent irresponsible lending practices that led to the subprime mortgage crisis.''
``You were advised to do so by many others,'' he told Greenspan.``And now our whole economy is paying the price.''

Theodore Roosevelt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodore_RooseveltMore than a classic, it remains, after 120 years, a standard study of the war... The police force was reputed as one of the most corrupt in America.
New York City Police Commissioner
Roosevelt became president of the board of New York City Police Commissioners in 1895. During his two years in this post, Roosevelt radically reformed the police department. The police force was reputed as one of the most corrupt in America. The NYPD's history division records that Roosevelt was "an iron-willed leader of unimpeachable honesty,(who) brought a reforming zeal to the New York City Police Commission in 1895." Roosevelt and his fellow commissioners established new disciplinary rules, created a bicycle squad to enforce New York's traffic laws, and standardized the use of pistols by officers. He selected the Colt New Police Revolver in .32 Colt Caliber as the first standard issue pistol for the NYPD. Roosevelt implemented regular inspections of firearms and annual physical exams, appointed 1,600 recruits based on their physical and mental qualifications and not on political affiliation, established meritorious service medals, and closed corrupt police hostelries. During his tenure, a Municipal Lodging House was established by the Board of Charities, and Roosevelt required officers to register with the Board. He also had telephones installed in station houses.

Colorado Democrats are attempting to pass legislation that will hold firearm manufacturers liable for crimes committed with their weapons.
Democrats have majorities in both legislative houses in Colorado, if they are able to do this...they will have sewn the seeds of Anarchy.
The seeds of Anarchy will blossom into a war of Retaliation using those very same weapons!

This is too difficult to believe but I believe her.
Our government, local, state and federal are running a ponzi scheme and the tax payers are the victims.
I believe the Clintons killed their partner. I believe Ted Kennedy killed his pregnant girlfriend and I especially believe that Obama killed the four Americans in Benghazi, especially after Panetta's testimony today.

They want to disarm us and will use any tactic to do so. The list which I posted concerning Obama's friends, mentors, his staff, etc. are all communist.
Communist are taking over America. I believe most members of both parties are communist. Just a handful of politicians actually have the American's back.
Everything, which has been done is the same as Hitler led the Jewish people to believe he was setting up a Utopia environment for them. They believe it and were led to their death.He wants to dismantle the armies, censor the media except for the slobbering ones who adore him, control the schools--how many communist are teaching not only in colleges but the public school system, control the food---this is why we import food and pay off farmers not to grow, the healthcare system--one way to genocide people and blame it on the healthcare policies, etc.
This sounds like I am talking wildly, I am not. Just wished a lot of us had seen this years ago.
Communist have taken charge of America and we are in jeopardy.
I wish people would wake up before its too late.
