I include all lobbyists. Unions. The NRA. Chamber of Commerce. Big oil. Corrections workers. Plastic manufacturers and coal companies. Anti war and pro war. All lobbyists.
Other countries have taken the money out of politics. We are as smart as the Brits and the Canadians.
Falling in line behind the Koch brothers will not protect our freedoms or our futures. Money is not speech and corporations are not people.

Compare campaign financing, limits on ads and the duration of campaigns in Canada and England to the US and come back with an apology.
The standard of living is higher in some of those Euro countries you despise. Germany is still an industrial giant and still has a strong social safety net, low unemployment and good wages for workers. Their roads are in better shape than ours and they have a viable, efficient passenger rail system. They haven't invaded any body for a long time. The US might do well to follow some of that example.
If we do not take the money out of politics, if we do not return control of the fate of the nation to to people instead of corporations we will continue to slide into the abyss of corporate totalitarianism.
Every single time I have been called an "idiot" it was by an actual certifiable moron. Rick, little lady, you are an actual, certifiable moron. And a troll.

You didn't say duration, now you change the story, did u realize politics involves money everywhere? Now you are comparing USA to Germany? lol...Germany is the size of New Mexico u freak. Europe is a mess and in trouble, look at all the countries there broke and since they allowed so many islamics, look at their muslim problem. I knew u were just like obama, that we need to be like europe..typical left wing nut thinking. Europe was screwed by Soros years ago. It's not a model.

President Giorgio Napolitano on Saturday called on Italians to make sacrifices to prevent the "financial collapse of Italy".

"Sacrifices are necessary to ensure the future of young people, it's our objective and a commitment we cannot avoid," he said in a New Year's speech to the nation.

The eurozone's third largest economy, Italy sparked fears in 2011 that its toxic mix of low growth, high debt and spiralling borrowing costs could force it to seek a bailout like fellow eurozone members Greece, Ireland and Portugal.

"No-one, no social group, can today avoid the commitment to contribute to the clean up of public finances in order to prevent the financial collapse of Italy," he said.

"The sacrifices will not be in vain," he added, "especially if the economy begins to grow again."

I wonder if Italy's president will take a 4 million dollar vacation after saying that?

George W. Bush spent at least $20 million taxpayer dollars just on flights to his ranch in Crawford.

The right wing has been outraged at the four million dollar plus price tag for Obama’s family Christmas vacation, and they constantly hold George W. Bush up as an example of how thrifty a president should be when going on vacation.

The problem is that W. wasn’t thrifty. He was the most expensive vacation president in US history. Not only did Bush spend more days on vacation than any other president, but he used Air Force One more often while on vacation than any other president.

Ricky Boy, I am far less outraged by either presidents vacation expenditures than I am by the trillions of dollars and thousands of lives wasted on Bush's phony war for oil to avenge his daddy.

We pissed away over $700 million a day on Bush's phony war in Iraq. We'll be paying for those wars for generations. All for nothing.

Who cares about how much Obama spent on vacation. What about when Obama said Bush was spending “dangerously”, yet Obama spent more in his first 2 years than Bush did his entire 8 years. 8 years...get it? Bush spent 5 times as much in 8 years as Obama spent on ONE vacation and Bush is to blame? Talk about gross lies and misinformation… 8 years vs 3 years and comparing one vacation to 8 years worth. Then saying that any president does not work while on vacation. Saying Bush used his plane for political oh my gosh Obama has been using planes trains and automobiles for political campaign since he arrived. THis whole article is a left leaning whine and excuse for Obama’s Vacation. Clearly you are a liberal and supporter of Obama.

Yes actually, the tea party is all about hate for minorities of any kind. They also are enimies of freedom, because they wish to force everyone to convert to thier version of terroristic christianity. No, I have no problem with normal christians, just the ones that hate the poor, and anyone who is different. Your type have turned the republican party into the party of hate and intolerance. And yes, I certainly discriminated against hateful biased bigots. Go worship your god the $ and leave normal peace and freedom loveing people alone.

First of all, the tea party is not a race based party, you must have been thinking of the KKK. 2nd, the tea party has the right to believe in God. What Christians hate the poor? Because people would rather find a job for a poor person instead of handing them money, that is wrong? Define normal? You spend a lot of time hating people for the wrong reasons, why is that? Do some simple research on the tea party. Some tea party ideas, which ones do u not agree with?
