Is this a joke!!!

The dems with their BIG GOVERNMENT Agenda get 100's of MILLIONS of dollars in free propaganda from the Corporate Main-Stream Media, aka the L-I-A-R-S(Liberal Intelligentsia And Rich Socialists) Club.

Because of their BIAS we now have a non-functional government and are 17 TRILLION in debt.

The First Order of Business is to restore free speech in this country if we EVER HOPE to regain honest elections in this country.

Look at This. Obama gets better press than Stalin did in Communist Russia Or-----and we wonder why US power is waning.

"Seymour Hersh has got some extreme ideas on how to fix journalism close down the news bureaus of NBC and ABC, sack 90% of editors in publishing and get back to the fundamental job of journalists which, he says, is to be an outsider."

"The Obama administration lies systematically, he claims, yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him."

"It's pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama]," he declares in an interview with the Guardian.

as long as the supposed 'commander in chief' is allowed to spend 75% of his time being 'campaign contribution mgr in chief' and can hold his powerful position over corporate heads to pay up or 'gee thats a nice business you have there, would hate to see something happen to it' then election campaign fundraising control would remain the joke that it is. No politician can compete with the prez free taxpayer travel, power of position to coerce hesitant contributers'. chicago thug politics is all that fool knows.

I wonder why Obama punished the WWII Veterans for defeating Hitler?

Hmmm.

Too late for that----The Bankster's and/or the Globalist Oligarchy already control the political system. Since 1988, the Presidents have been their puppets.

Just what we need, another blow to our democracy.
Campaigns should be funded by every taxpayer adding a dollar or two to his or her federal tax return. That's enough for politicians to lay their bullshit on us. Any additional contributions to a campaign, direct or indirect, should be criminalized.
When money can influence the vote, it's time to stop pretending we're a democracy.

I agree with you 100%
But the problem is not who pays, but who's receiving,
The problem began in the 70 's when PACs were made legal.
And...
When did "representation" become a career?
Today they are paid even when the Government is shut down!
We need representatives of the common people, not career politicians who are johns who prostitute the American people.

The RepubliCON National Committee put this case up for the court. Their Nutcase rightwing Supreme Idiots: Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia,(RATS)+Kennedy. Is it any wonder that this CORRUPT court took this case so that they can vote for unlimited $$$$$$$$$$ for their buddies, the Kochs, Adelsons, and other billionaire Corporate wh@res??? This is a set up. Money is NOT speech! It is the means of insuring untold corruption, criminal gangsterism, and crony capitalism. In effect, the voices of We the People have been shut down. It is a Republican dream of killing our democracy and giving it to Corporate Fascism. Stand Up and Take Action!!
