Still think all PACs are created equal?

Not since Citizens United was incorporated by the Koch's it hasn't.

Karl Rove’s Crossroads is the biggest spender, reporting spending more than $87.9 million since 2010, but it’s still waiting to be officially approved as tax exempt. Gee, do you think the IRS will be able to be objective when it comes to Crossroads’ overtly political purpose, or will they feel pressured to rubber stamp Karl so as not to cause offense?


and they are so persecuted.

And as usual, this is just what they admit to.

There's nothing here on the SPN, nor ALEC.

It makes sense. Republican groups are more business-oriented and money-wise than democrats, as a group. You cannot deny success.

So, General Motors for president in '16'?

Might as well cut out the middle man.

hell no. I am thinking more along the lines of Apple. It is no secret that I believe businessmen should run the country.

A business man, with the help of a bunch of teabagge(R)s are fucking Michigan up real good.

They're only good "leaders" in their own minds, and the PR departments.

So that's just another half measure.

You need the whole nine yards.

A super citizen, like Goldman Sachs!!

But if you still want an individual?

Just skip over all those costly, inefficient elections and just appoint the richest guy. He simply must be the smartest, why bother with lesser beings.

So that would be either Buffet or Gates.

I thought you might like Buffet.

What makes you say that?

A sense of humor so lacking, it fails to understand sarcasm?

I found your thinking a businessman would make a "good" politician to be comical, so I responded in kind.

they have the numbers we call money

[-] 1 points by shooz (26677) 11 months ago

Yep, I think they said that in the link.

They "other side"?

34X LESS of those numbers we call money.

what do you think about that?

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 11 months ago

I think money is not fairly distributed

to optimize circulation of goods and services to the people

[-] 1 points by shooz (26677) 11 months ago

That goes to reason, but do you think this inequity might have something to do with it?

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 11 months ago

I work for the one that has money to give me

[-] 1 points by shooz (26677) 11 months ago

This isn't about jobs. Kind of the opposite.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 11 months ago

it's about control over the people that need money to pay rent or debt

the control of or lives through unfair money balance is much greater than mere politics

Rather then beat around the bush anymore, I'll tell you this.

The figures you refuse to analyze, for some odd reason, will make it worse, a lot worse, so If that's what you want you're in like Flynn
