This is why we desperately need campaign finance reform. Hell, we need to reform a lot in this country - but that will take a major revolution.

The news says these twits have 40 times the money Trump has.... 40 Times! They think they can just buy the candidate they want and that is why we must show them they cannot.

I wonder how they will do it, will they have a swimwear contest. Having looked at the current crop of Republican candidates they are a pretty sorry lot and most of them have the grace of a beached Elephant Sea but then the Koch brothers look like a pair of leathery homunculi that should be kept in a bottle. If anything this election is gearing up to be the dirtiest and costliest in history with quite a few of the contenders possibly ending up catching a bullet.

It's who the Nazi, Karl Rove says it is…I quit Care2 because of their choice of advertisers. You find them under, you might like this: A bunch of crooks and I have an open case with one of them. Shame on you, Care2.

NESARA is nearly here, and is bringing us a brand new money system. From this point on they cannot buy their friends with money anymore! :-)

To spend so much money on campaigns is foolish. But since we do----there is a bigger concern than donations. It's Districting......Voting is broken–and government has broken it. From the local level to the highest branches of government, our states’ redistricting laws have–in effect–rigged elections to the point that voters do not have the strongest voice in choosing their representatives. They are drowned out by whatever group of legislators happens to re-draw their district lines

Donations to any candidate---by corporations, billionaires or individuals --it's a stretch of the imagination that if elected they can satisfy thousands of requests if it comes with a donation. They are going to go along with party-lines---I guarantee.

Citizens United must have really been written by the Kochs. It gives them a license to purchase our entire government. I signed the petition to have them investigated for voter fraud, and shared the article on Facebook. Since Rand was not invited, I suppose he will remain my senator. Sigh.
