    We like hearing ourselves talk? or write?

    I think of it more as balancing the scales a bit. If someone came into this discussion knowing nothing, I'd hope they'd see more than the intentionally false right wing talking points.

    Second, 501c3's and 501c4's aren't allowed to participate in the election process.
    They are allowed to spend money on advocating political positions.

    But do I take it that you think Citizens United SCOTUS decision was no big deal? It's one of the problems that the Dems face in this debate, on the one the scream that CU decision was the end of free elections, and on the other they want to argue that denying 501(c)(4) participation is no big deal. They can't have it both ways.

    I think this is about the 15th time I've "reminded" you about this. Any chance you can update your talking points a bit?
    Nope. You haven't actually made a point worth considering yet, and if you made that point to me in the past I can see why it was forgettable.

    IRS agents testified before Oversight that ACORN groups were scrutinized because the agency thought they were old organizations applying as new ones. Emerge America was scrutinized for potential “improper private benefit.” No evidence exists that the IRS requested additional information from any Occupy Wall Street group.

    “Only seven applications in the IRS backlog contained the word ‘progressive,’ all of which were then approved by the IRS, while Tea Party groups received unprecedented review and experienced years-long delays. While some liberal-oriented groups were singled out for scrutiny, evidence shows it was due to non-political reasons,” according to the Oversight staff report

    So in your warped world you justify the biased application of the law because those who were stonewalled shouldn't be allowed anyway? Do you have any idea how dangerous your thinking is?

    CBS and CNN, who I trust a little more than Tucker Carlson and the Daily Caller when it comes to journalism.

    But, it doesn't matter. I have a hunch that you're going to dismiss anything which runs contrary to your view as "liberal lies".

    Funny, if this were truly a "witch hunt" it would have been over long ago.

    Who counters a "witch hunt" with 24 consecutive 5th ammendment pleas ?

    Liberals ARE LIARS.
    That much CAN be proven over and over and over again.

    From Obamas pathological promises to Al Sharpton's lies about when and how he became a FBI informant, the left relies on spouting misinformation because they know their followers are low information ideologues.
