    1) We all think that every org, including unions, should be required to disclose their political contributions

    2) Most agree that there should be limits on how much money that every org, including unions, can contribute.

    I said campaigns. Not elections.

    But, if you meant, "campaigns", then...oh hell no! Not with my money they ain't. **** that! If they want to run for office, they can come up with the jack on their own.

    The bolded part makes me squirm some. We simply can't continue to keep adding spending at the government level, also excluding individuals from contributing does indeed come pretty close to squelching freedom of speech. I am in agreement of Unions, corporations and even PAC's.

    Yes, I mean campaigns.

    If you think you're saving money by allowing individuals and corporations to bribe our elected officials you are living on Mars.

    How is it a partisan issue?

    We constantly hear the Libbos crying about the supreme court decision that allows corporations to donate to political campaigns, but we never hear them cry about how that same decision also allows unions to do the same. That's the real partisan issue, because we all know that unions are going to funnel millions to Democrats, long before Republicans; not to mention the public employees unions, who are now able to launder billions of tax dollars and turn them into campaign donations But, not a word about that from the Libbos.

    No, you don't hear that on Fox News or Rush, but in fact liberals do object to unlimited, anonymous contributions, period.
