    If it takes Ossoff flipping GA-6, for Republicans to come to the right position on Money in Politics, bring it on.


    Can you say "Koch Brothers" without saying George Soros? How many millions do you see hollywood socialist elitists dumping into election campaigns. HTF do people like you actually make such stupid statements as "boy...those republicans...they sure do spend a lot of money on elections. Just look at the Koch brothers" and not collapse out of shame?

    Do you realize that Soros was fully invested in all of the top 9 Clinton campaign contributors? Or that 4 of the top 9 where investment companies? Or that the number 2 campaign contributor has a CEO born and raised in Moscow? Or that 2 of her top 20 financial contributors were the US Government and the State department? that her top investors are ALL multi billionaires including the richest men on the planet?

    **** stinks. You running around holding your nose at 'their' pile of **** doesnt change the fact that the pile of **** you are craddling stinks just as bad.

    I'm not a Democrat and I don't support George Soros, Podesta, David Brock, Ken Salazar, Bloomberg, or any of the left wing think tanks and SuperPACs. They are all big business oriented. They don't give a **** about democracy, they just care that they stay rich and the peanut gallery stays poor.

    Not a HRC supporter. I get it from both sides. I've battled people on this website about HRC. HRC was perhaps the most significant symbol in modern times, of the corrupting influence of money in politics. That still doesn't make what the Koch bros do right. And the damage they have done in the past 8 years, will take decades to undo.

I know money is the object in politics, but one would think there would be some rules??
    Did I hear the story correctly?
    Happens all the time. Read recently that the front runner for the VA governors race on the democratic side who is leading the fundraising field by a hefty margin can attribute it to just three out of state donors-- George Soros being one of them.

    The Koch bros are a rat nemesis but they arent the problem. Like I said....as soon as you start shrieking about what THOSE GUYS do...well...you kinda out yourself. If its a problem its a universal problem.

    Until the money is removed from the equation (as if), we can debate, argue, and MF each other until we're blue in the face. Right, left and center, all samey, samey .

    And who paid for all of the slick anti-Ossoff ads?

    Who sponsored and paid for the robo calls to the GA-6 district?

    Until, then SuperPACs will continue to pour large amounts of money into our democratic process.

    If Ossoff flipping a Red seat in GA, is what gets people to change their mind about money in politics, then that is a hefty dose of irony. People don't like it when the shoe is on the other foot.
    I was going to post something along similar lines, but you beat me to it.

    I heard on WABC this week that this is now the "most expensive" congressional race in American history.
