Finally a thread on this subject with common sense. A SuperPAC is hypocritical and shows a huge lack of integrity by the movement.

I agree that its hypocritical. Becoming what you've been fighting against?

Also, I smell a rat. The guy that started this thing did so on his own and I don't trust it.

Beats me...lol

True that!

[-] 1 points by craigdangit (326) 2 years ago

The real question is, does the super PAC have free speech rights?

[-] 1 points by geo (2638) from Concord, NC 2 years ago

The real question is 'do the ends justify the means'? Is it necessary for us to use hypocritical means to achieve our ends? My answer is no.

The real question is, is this super PAC going to disclose donors and spending?

[-] 1 points by craigdangit (326) 2 years ago

I don't know... I asked you first. Can we have a principled discussion?

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21780) 2 years ago

I hope so.

[-] 1 points by craigdangit (326) 2 years ago

Alright, I will go first. Does the Occupy Wall Street super PAC deserve the right to buy campaign ads and such? I support their rights wholeheartedly.

you can't win a ball game by claiming balls are bad

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21780) 2 years ago

I wasn't under the impression that this was a ballgame.

Whats next Carl Rove as spokesman.

[-] 1 points by MaryS (678) 2 years ago

Who needs Karl Rove, we have Roy Zimmerman for a spokesperson

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21780) 2 years ago

I don't know how anyone vaguely supports Ron Paul.

[-] 1 points by cJessgo (729) from Port Jervis, PA 2 years ago

I don't know how anyone could support any of them.

I'm too stupid to understand all that stuff he says about economics. Also it doesn't fit my predetermined conclusions.
