    Hm, lemme see here - the conservatives on the Supreme Court pretty much allowed unlimited donations by individuals and corporations...and you wonder why the government's "helpless to resist"? The power of corporations and the rich over our government is a problem of the GOP's making. Y'all wanted the rich to be able to contribute as much as they wanted...and now we live in an oligarchy, according to this article in the VERY right-leaning Washington Times. It quotes a study by Princeton:

    “The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence,” the study found.

    The study also found: “When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organized interests, they generally lose.”


    Don't get me wrong - our government's always depended on being able to buy supplies from the private sector - it's absolutely crucial that we could do so. But when the rich have free rein to spend whatever they will to get their way with the government, every politician knows that to take on corporate corruption is all to often nothing more than a prelude to a loss in the next election. That, sir, is why there's so little accountability in government for this overspending.

    Perhaps the most glaring example is Bush's Medicare Part D, where Medicare was disallowed from being able to negotiate lower prices for medications. Big Pharma's one of the richest sectors out there...and any politician who tries to get rid of that ban on negotiation is signing his career's death warrant. Your side did this...and it's costing each and every one of us, every day.

    There shouldn't be an investigation... This "investigation" further proves our government is intrusive.

    Furthermore their findings will be moot anyways...

    This is quite literally a witch hunt - and an act of retribution.

    If these ****ing punks FBI agents cant kill these people with their guns - they will kill them with their pens.

    So when should the FBI investigate things? Ever? Only when you like it?

    Also, I love how you use language like "hillbilly" in a negative fashion while you pretend to be all liberal and ****.

    Once again progressives love to hate and label.

    You are the one throwing around the labels, I am not a liberal or progressive, registered to no party, but I usually vote republican.

    You have no argument, so attack the poster, eh?

    IDK, maybe start with investigating actual terrorists and actual criminals instead of cows eating grass.

    How about the FBI focus' on actual threats instead of a bunch of citizens that made their butt hurt?

    Of course people want to see Bundy hung and all of us fellow libertarians and those that support the man - you know why? because we have the ****ing audacity to stand up for ourselves and judge this government and say "No."

    Authoritarians don't like the word "NO."

    Who says they're not?

    Do you think the cows are being investigated? What will they charge the cows with?

    And they have the audacity to ask that you pay taxes and don't involve weapons when they come to get it.

    Looks like you don't either: No, Mr.Nick, you don't get to make the rules.

    I'm not an authoritarian - I don't want to be Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Guevara etc...

    You really don't get it do you?

    Do you even know what my concerns are?

    I'm sure your mother is very proud of you for not wanting to be Mao.

    You really don't get it do you?
    I don't care.

    Do you even know what my concerns are?
    I don't care.

    I care about how you seem to be against the FBI doing its job.

    I believe your concern is installing a 'rule of the jungle', void of social considerations, wherein morons can do whatever they want under the guise of "freedom" and "democracy".

    I could be wrong now, but I don't think so.
