The repub backed Super Pack, and that crappy Citizens United ruling that allows them, has redefined democracy as we know it.
Last election, after any candidate loses the support voters who decide to support someone else, that candidate has to listen to the people and give up the race due to no campaign cash.
This is no longer the case. Newton Leroy Gingrich is not winning any votes, and not getting enough cash from voters.
But he can remain in the campaign and be a thorn because of one man's money...and voice.
The repub primary is being trashed by Newt's ability to stay in the race, even though the public has stopped funding his campaign.
A direct result of Super Pacs.
Say goodbye to democracy. Your voice is no longer as loud as someone who can put millions into a campaign, and you can't match it. Just 4 years ago, your voice was just as loud as Newt's Sugar Daddy, cause you both had a limit of 2500 bucs.
We have to create an Amendment to help rid the Country of the Citizens United ruling.
Our politics was just fine without it. SuperPacs have only helped politicians. Go figure.

Illinois has bigger problems they should worry about, such as putting potential criminals in office:
I am unsure - it seems this is the most corrupt state while our west coast entertainment is the most nonsensical in their actions.

It costs millions to run for office in this country. We had a choice between a career politician, and a young man with new ideas, and we got rid of the career politician.Congressman Kinzinger is an honorable, and honest young man, serves his country well, and will likely be President some day. His opponent was a man who went to D C poor, and will go home after 20 years, very rich.
