You seem surprised that politicians would lie.

Democrats said they "wouldn't accept corporate money" yet Bank of America and Wells Fargo have contributed. Someone has either lied or their position has done some serious evolving.

What? I'm skeptical. When and where did they say that?

Nothing speaks louder than A) your lone vote and B) Where you spend your money

tell that to MLK or the koch brothers
not original - but true

unity through strength through unity
united we stand - divided we fall
if we do not hang together, we shall all hang separately
