    I wish there was a way to let people live under the government they freely advocate for. Most people really deserve it.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    I'm guessing your missing the fact that Democrats are in bed with the Corporate world and the Unions too?

    It's all of them... it isn't defined by their political lean any more, it's defined by who can scratch their back the best.....
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    the same way liberals justify it, except they would rather do it in secret

    I think lobbyists should be banned and I'm absolutely a conservative.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Edit: More importantly, let's say the federal government outlawed individual donations to campaigns. Do you think the government has that right?
    A boycott is an exercise of the freedom we generally have to not purchase things we do not want. Advocating for a boycott is an exercise in free speech.

    As to whether the government can outlaw contributions altogether... Sure, whatever is good for the Republic.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    "Because the retailer spending information is not 'submit[ted]' by 'an applicant retail food store or wholesale food concern...' the information is not exempt from disclosure. The department, not any retailer, generates the information, and the underlying data is 'obtained' from third-party payment processors, not from individual retailers," Chief Judge William Jay Riley wrote in an opinion joined by Judges Steven Colloton and Jane Kelly.

    (Also on POLITICO: The new faces of food stamps)

    The judges acted on an appeal filed by South Dakota's Argus Leader newspaper after the USDA turned down the paper's Freedom of Information Act request for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program payments to individual retailers on an annual basis from 2005 to 2010. A district court judge agreed with the federal government's argument that part of the food stamp program statute barred such disclosure, making the data exempt from FOIA.
