    I don't like money influencing anyone, but you can't suddenly complain about Rubio while turning a blind eye to the many questionable donations democrats recieve all the time. One either needs to consistently say it's wrong or shut up.

    I've suggested many times before that contributions should be limited to 1000 dollars per election cycle, and citizens united being overturned, that said I would also like a pet unicorn. And without big donations the way politics is structured it's impossible to run a credible campaign, and of course the donors will be prefentially treated by that administration . That doesn't surprise anyone.

    It's noted you believe in prison with no due process for legal conduct apparently

    I made no left or right reference and to me it is irrelevant to the discussion. I'd have said the same thing on a thread about Ms. Rodham.

    He's an American labor leader. He's no corporate billionaire giving money for an agenda. He rallies his members to vote and be involved. Moreover, looking at the state of labor today it doesn't seem like his efforts are very much appreciated.

    I turned to Rubio because it is such a blatant case in point about what the right is always yelling about the left. So, the point is - don't yell about the left.

    So .....the man giving money to Rubio is a faction, and the AFL-CIO is also a faction.
    Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government

    THE
    second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.

    Clearly you have no idea what has been said.

    I said it was a false narrative, and it is.

    These statements are simply false.

    Our government is for sale and this needs to be stopped. This kind of corruption cannot be tolerated. Both these men should be in prison.

    Our government isn't for sale.
    "This" corruption, when no corruption was mentioned let alone proven.
    And these two did nothing to be in prison.


    An yet you are going to sit there and make ridiculous argument? iLOL
