    With the unprecedented anonymous corporate funding thanks to citizens united, it will take large numbers voting to insure we offset the corporate influence. I don't believe in taking chances.
    Yeah, cause that Union spending is almost nothing and irrelevant.

    This Citizens United corporate funding is a whole new ball game for political campaign funding.

    "In 2012, about two dozen individuals, couples or corporations have given $1 million or more to Republican super PACs, an exclusive club empowered by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision and other rulings to pool their money into federal political committees and pour it directly into this year’s presidential campaign.

    Collectively, their contributions have totaled more than $50 million this cycle, making them easily the most influential and powerful political donors in politics today. They have relatively few Democratic counterparts so far, with most of the leading liberal donors from past years giving relatively small amounts — or not at all — to the Democratic super PACs.

    Unlike in past years, when wealthy donors of both parties donated chiefly to groups that were active in the general election campaign, the top Republican donors are contributing money far earlier, in contests that will determine the party’s presidential nominee."

    WOW...it sounds like your previous predictions of certain victory are now in question...by yourself.

    Carry on.

    So we gave all this money to the wealthy. I thought this was supposed to get us all jobs?

    I know! History shows quite clearly that trickle down economics doesn't work. And yet, our government just had to go give it another try.

    Im shocked...truly. Actual unemployment rates are around 20% (higher in most major democrat population centers), the fed has taken the national debt from 9 to 16 trillion in an attempt to buy our way into prosperity, and the only ones truly 'prospering' are those with investment capital and able to build, grow and invest more? Thats just...shocking!

    Seriously...what do you THINK is going to be the end result? 47% of the country dont make enough to pay their 'fair share' and a good number of them are un/underemployed. Where do you THINK there would be this magic balancing of income 'gains'? And funny...I dont see wealthy democrats lining up to willingly GIVE their **** away for some reason.

    I guess you missed the 400 millionaires that petitioned congress to raise the capital gains tax rates.
