    I didn't make any stupid comments about Soros.

    Why would I be thrilled about Orman running as an Independent?

    Who said anything to the effect that conservatives don't hold fundraisers?

    No, it wasn't. Judism is a religous denotation. That is a fact.

    What exactly is "Frenchism"? "Italism"? Or "Greekism"? These are nations, Judism is a religion.

    Orman is decieving the voters.

    It is the same thing as "Judism"

    Maybe you should read a book or two...

    Any voter who thinks Orman is a true independent should know better. Orman's true stripes were revealed the day Democrat Taylor withdrew and threw his support along with that of the Kansas Democratic Party to Orman. If Orman was a true independent he would be accepting Democratic money. Orman is an independent in name only much like Sanders from Vermont and King from Maine.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Back to the OP. It should read "Soros' Son Hosts Fundraiser To Buy Orman's Loyalty To Democrats And Their Progressive Agenda".
    That he is, he is in the mold of Sanders and King.

    His historical political contributions have been studied, with all of the data from Opensecrets.org. Orman has donated to Democrats a whopping 93% of the time - including donations to Al Franken. I struggle to call anyone who donated to Franken anything but a very left leaning Liberal.

    The comparison to Sanders and King is a good one. Orman is about as Independent as Charlie Crist was the day he lost the Senate primary to Marco Rubio and changed his affiliation to "Independent" (which of course was right before he declared himself a "Democrat").

    Do these guys think we're stupid?

    Now, enter Soros. He needs to get his money into his stooge running against Roberts so at the very least he can fracture the vote, to give the liberal a chance. So, does Soros come right out and make it clear that he is backing this faux independent? No.

    Soros thinks so little of the American voter, and thinks they are so stupid that he sends his son to do the fundraising, so that if any question comes up he at least has the narrowest of denials of involvement....

    Crap like this, coupled with demo's long time election fraud of using absentee ballots to tip elections, and the outright corruption we see today from liberals in the process, my question is will the American electorate wake up? I don't know.
    Soros can hold fund raisers for whom ever he wants. But if Orman accepts the funds that puts his claim as being an independent to rest. He then become beholden to Soros and the Democratic Party. Accepting that money would in my opinion make him a defacto Democrat and independent in name only. Before Democratic Senate candidate Taylor withdrew Orman was saying the right things and campaigning like a true independent. Once Taylor withdrew, the Democratic apparatus threw all their support to him. A good political move on the Democrats part to be sure, but the odds he would caucus with the Democrats and become one of them like Sanders from Vermont and King from Maine rose from roughly 50-50 to 80%.

    With Soros raising money for Orman, again a good political move on his part, now the odds Orman caucusing with the Democrats has rose to 95%. In other words Orman is an independent in name only. He is way too beholden to the Democratic Party and their money that if he wins, Orman has no other choice than to caucus with them exactly like Sanders and King.

    There is no free money in politics. Money from whomever or from what ever corporation, lobbyist, special interests, wall street firms is given or comes with strings attached. Whomever receives and accepts their money, owes them.

    Regarding the bolded part...I often find it very ironic that people make accusations that unpopular groups - religious organizations, the NRA, big business, etc. - are buying politicians' favor and loyalty with their donations, but those same people don't always find it equally appalling that people like Soros here are doing the exact same thing. This is all nothing new - and it happens on both sides, not just the GOP side.

    If Orman is an independent, I'm waking up tomorrow in bed with Brad Pitt.
