How long do you think it will take for those dyed in the derp to realize that the companies that rent out all those politicians to say there's no money for hiring could hire people were they not blowing money on renting politicians to say there's no money for hiring?


Oh, right. As soon as they say something to themselves like, "Oh, it's not states' rights that was the issue of the Civil War, but rather the egregious claim that people had a right to own human beings as private property."

So, never. Never ever ever ever. Too busy, Dancing with the Cave Shadows comes on soon.

Kit Fister: Evil High Priest: balthan: dwrash: Since we don't really care who votes (or how many times they vote)

I agree. We should have a (free) national ID and national voting standards.

Right. Because the very worst of the corruption and abuse in our election laws occurs at the individual voter level.

Oh please. You speak as if somehow we weren't given the candidates that were washed and scrubbed and vetted and given the approval by the corporations.

The only thing that's disrupted this status quo is the tea party, and that being basically due to a bunch of middle class older folks getting together to biatch about taxes and entitlements that Rush Limbaugh decried being taken over and used as a vehicle for the ultra-christian right to gain power.

/Iran has Ayatola Khomeni, USA has Ayatola Rush Fatarski


Hey, now. "The corporations" are people, too! Show some respect.

ScreamingHangover: Why don't we just simply put the various elected offices up for sale to the highest bidder on eBay, then apply the generated revenue to pay off the debt? It can't be worse than what we have now.


Ok, but we have to let groups kickstart a candidate here and there.

Saiga410: Inflation, how do it work?


Are you suggesting the dollar is worth half what it was in 2003?

Satanic_Hamster: dwrash: Since we don't really care who votes (or how many times they vote)... does it really matter?... just blame the money I guess.

[dailycaller.com image 600x829]

This is more important to me than campaign funding.

Tell you what:
Make ID's free in the US, like in South Africa
Make it a federal ID and not give any states power to hinder the process, like in South Africa
And stop the Republican party from deliberately making it hard to get id's in poor/minority/Democratic areas.

Until those happen, go fark yourself.


Next thing you'll suggest is not allowing the office of government IDs to only open after 10am on Tuesdays and Thursdays so the non-old people can go get one! Freaking commie, you are!

obvious tag still sequestered?

/I'd like to see a major candidate run on serious campaign reforms but with the Dems being worried about holding on to seats and (at least parts of) the GOP actively trying to dismantle democracy in the US, I don't hold out much hope.
