They look like the cat that swallowed the canary. You have been given Much Advanced Warning - Judgments Coming Against "Wickedness" boys/girls -

Are you Aware that at last count 26 Buoy Stations are in 'Event' Mode" along the Pacific Rim right now? http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/

If you are not Aware of the physical 'Events' of The Great Tribulation/Time of GOD'S Wrath Against "Wickedness" see "The Revelation of Jesus Christ which GOD gave Him to show..." Ch. 8 vs 2-5 = the Preamble to the Seven Trumpets, which I believe we have been and continue to experience - "And I saw the seven angels which stood before GOD; and to them were given Seven Trumpets" of Last Warning.

3 "And another angel came and stood at the Altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before The Throne. 4And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before GOD out of the angel's hand. 5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the Altar, and cast it - into - the Earth http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/ca... and there were Voices (some versions say "noises" or "sounds")
, and Thunderings and Lightings http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/20... , and an Earthquake."

The next and last 'Event' to take place in the Preamble is the first Global Mega-Earthquake before the 7 Trumpets, then the 7 Last Plagues/Bowls commence.

The Trumpets are GOD’S last Warning "Signs"/Events that The End of “the old order of things” has Arrived (see Revelation 14:6-13 http://biblehub.com/kjv/revelation/14.htm & Revelation 18 http://biblehub.com/nlt/revelation/18.htm for His Last Warning Messages to mankind to "Come Out" of Babylon/ Practicing Wickedness - let it go or it will Destroy you). The Most Generous Offer of our Creator's Salvation (Eternal Life) will be Withdrawn at the 7th Trumpet and The Seven Last Plagues will begin to fall on those who are still alive and "...refused to love and accept The Truth that would save them." http://biblehub.com/nlt/2_thessalonians/2.htm note vs 10. In this conflict that began in Heaven (it's true - we're not alone), one must choose sides, there will be no fence sitters http://biblehub.com/niv/revelation/9.htm (Satan visibly allowed to come up from the Abyss and not just working through his deceived human minions anymore).

GOD," the GOD of ALL mankind" http://biblehub.com/jeremiah/32-27.htm , has also been generous enough and loves His creation enough to Warn us that The Great Tribulation - His Wrath Against "Wickedness" will be a time of Very Great Deception so that if it were possible even the very elect would be deceived - http://biblehub.com/matthew/24-24.htm , http://niv.scripturetext.com/2_thessalonians/... Note vs. 9-12.
http://biblehub.com/kjv/revelation/13.htm Note vs. 11-14

"For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. "Behold, I have told you before it happens. So if someone tells you,'Look, the Messiah is out in the desert,' don't bother to go and look. Or,'Look, he is hiding here,' don't believe it! For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.”
http://biblehub.com/matthew/24-25.htm vs. 24-27

And He has pulled back the curtain as Promised in Daniel 12:4 to make us aware of not only their evil plans against their fellowman but aware of such technologies as Project Blue Beam and the lengths 'they' will go to (on our dime) to Deceive - http://educate-yourself.org/cn/projectbluebea... , etc....

Democrats can't cheer because when it looks like you are going to lose the election big time, and right now it looks like the Democrats will loose in November the big donors hold onto the cash. Republicans on the other hand are looking at big bucks coming in for the 2014 election. So there will be much wailing, and gnashing of teeth among the party of Obama.

Whatever side you're on, if you like these expanded freedoms for the rich, think what you are giving up. By giving more so-called freedom of speech to the super-rich, the Court is stealing freedom of speech from ordinary Americans.

If you want elections controlled by money, so be it. But you need to realize that when money can buy elections, one person-one vote becomes meaningless, and democracy dies.

tho only ones this will matter to are those that sell their vote to whomever puts out the most TV ads.

money doesn't buy elections, complacent voters sell them. all the money in the world doesn't make a difference to real voters.

But I do say it, when I say whatever side you're on. First of all, the money raised by unions pales in comparison to the virtually limitless amounts given by just a few super-wealthy people. Democrats raise their funds by small donations, so at least more citizens are represented.

But that is not really the issue. I believe that each party should be allotted an equal, reasonable amount of money to spend on their campaigns. Apart from that, not another dime from anyone, either from unions or the Kochs of the world. That way the scales would be balanced, and every vote by each eligible citizen would carry equal weight. Otherwise money buys elections, our right to vote doesn't really count, and democracy is finished.

It's like any other form of advertising. Besides the quality of the ad, the heaviness of the advertising itself has persuasive power.
Campaign advertising makes the correct assumption that most people don't really have the time or inclination to follow the issues in depth, and can be persuaded by both the content and the volume of advertising.

I don't think people knowingly "sell" their votes. They believe they are making the wisest choice. What they are unaware of is the powerful effect of advertising, both in quality and volume. They don't so much "sell" their votes so much as "buy" the advertising.
