    Congress is so dysfunctional, people are actually looking to CEOs on issues like open carry.

    The government is supposed to represent everybody, not just lobbyists and powerful donors. These assholes in Congress are making billions on political favors and then becoming lobbyists themselves. I am talking about Pelosi, McConnell, Ryan, etc. it’s both parties. Money controls Washington. Not the votes. Not even we’ll armed citizens control Washington. Money controls Washington.
    you apparently hate the concept of free speech.

    I guess you are completely clueless as to wall street's donations in the 2016 election. Big wall street players weren't paying Trump 200K for thirty minute speeches.

    Warren Buffet and Rich Gates are uber rich and they favor higher taxes. I do not see your point.

    Some rich are patriots while others are not. Give me a patriot any day. The greedy Uber rich can go and "fly a kite" or better yet, go swimming in shark infested waters.
    My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring. Money is important but secondary.

    You can't spin you way out of this one. You made a public comment for all to see that poor people should be discriminated against at the ballot box.

    Now we know where your loyalties lie, and they aren't to democracy.

    I don't support democracy. Never had. Never will. How long have you been on this board? I don't think a bunch of those on the public dole should be able to vote up the taxes of a smaller number of tax payers.

    Hey, at least you're honest that you prefer your candidates to be corporate shills who take legalized bribes.

    Your great businessman is an amoral trust fund baby who has bounced from failure to failure with a few sexual assaults and bankruptcies along the way. If it wasn't for his racist father's money that he was given he would be hard-pressed to be the night manager at Taco Bell in Queens.
