    I think campaign finance reform is only an attempt to keep politics in control with the "in crowd" in both political parties and to prohibit any political dissent under penalty of law. So I do think it should be repealed.

Why would you want people to be focused on whomever gets the most exposure in the media over what they are actually planning to do?
    And how can you tell what a politician plans to do before they get into office?

    You're completely and totally wrong, as usual.

    Clearly any sort of non-stupid reply to you is a total waste of electrons. Since you can't seem to stay on track and are more interested in putting words in my mouth then actually saying something remotely intelligent and coherent, I'll leave you to your own devices.

    Considering how well that's worked in the past, I think voting for whoever puts on the best show with flashing lights and fireworks most often is just as valid.

    Sarah Palin has not endorsed Meg Whitman, as far as I know. And if the GOP is under the sway of Sarah Palin, then why is GOP establishment staying away from Palin-backed Christine O'Donnell? Furthermore, how do you explain the fact that there are two major components to the two party: the Sarah Palin faction and the Ron Paul faction?
