Like I said, black and white, you can admit no wrong doing on both sides of this fence. Therefore you're clearly a propagandist


No SANDERS is.




You can't even admit even slightly that the corporations with their armies of lobbyists are in anyway responsible for the state of things.


That is what American politics IS.

Politicians are lobbyist's.

The people are lobbyists.

Corporations are lobbyists.

There isn't a single 'person' that isn't.

The bigger government gets MORE lobbying gets created.

More cash pass's hands from the corporations to politicians to the people.

If people are so all fired so concerned with 'lobbying' GET RID OF AMERICAN politics.

The entire system is predicated on it.

If the entire non corporate American populace threw every penny into politics we still couldn't compete with the corporations.

The issue is it's unbalanced and unfair.

American politics is lobbyists, but only the corporate ones matter anymore and that's a problem.

Politics is corrupt in all countries. Doesn't mean it cant be changed. The act of lobbying is very corrupt and undemocratic. It needs to change.

I dont think Sanders is the right man for the job though. Liberals recently have become quite fascist trying to force their views on everyone and name calling if you dont agree. Its the opposite of true liberalism. Hopefully you will get a true Liberal in the near future. At the moment they are dangerous and destroying the heritage of the US.

The more money, as in going towards elections, the more lobbying their will be.
Small gov would be just as bad as long as there is still billions of dollars getting pumped in. Getting rid of citizens united is step one.

How's that ?

The current potus raised over $2 billion dollars to become potus.

It is as balanced and fair as it gets.

America where everyone is FOR SALE.

From the people to politicians, and there is NO shortage of cash.

From the 'masses' to them evil corporations to them UNIONS.

So might makes right in your world. In this case economic might, if you're not a billionaire, go # yourself cause you can't buy anybody and are thus worthless and nondeserving of a say.

Thank you for clarifying your stance.

Ever READ citizens united ?



The principles articulated by the Supreme Court in the case have also been extended to for-profit corporations, labor unions and other associations.


en.wikipedia.org...

I am all for it then.

That means no more SEIU'S and other unions.

No more 'Organizing for ACtion's'.

ETC.

I am NOT for stacking the DECK in the LEFTs favor by just getting rid of them evil corps though, and leaving the others.

Want it done away with ?

ALL of them would need to go.

DId I say that ?

Such colorful language too.

So I wonder why it is that the 14th amendment never applies to them evil rich.

I wonder why that is.

The rich only exist to pay for the WANTS of the mob.

Unfortunately you have the most expensive medical system on the planet. In the UK you would not have a problem. We pay national insurance which covers the NHS. This is only about £40 a month for all, and we know that whatever happens to us in the future we will be taken care of. Nobody seems to mind this here as we all know that tomorrow we may need the care also. Socialism is good only for education, healthcare, emergency services, schools and defence. No need to socialise everything as that kills commerce and encourages rampant corruption, as we know from history.

You implied it by saying a government powered by bribes was fair one.


You say the poor are trying to steal from the rich, but the deck is stacked in the riches favor and gets more so everyday.

Nope I wasn't done either.

Since we are talking about BRIBES.

All those social engineering programs HAVE TO GO TO.

Social Security,Medicare,Medicaid,Free homes, Food stamps,Free education etc,

ALL created, and designed for one thing : Bribe people in to voting for who ever supported them.

'Democracy' ended a long,long time ago when the people, and the politicians found out they could vote themselves MONEY, and things, and were all too happy to give up that little vote to a politician for it.

But no one really wants to talk about THAT.

ALL they want to do is DEMAGOGUE the rich.

ALL they want to do is DEMAGOGUE Ceo's.

Who are sitting there laughing all the way to their 'foreign' bank accounts.

Because the Sanders GUARANTEE them 'money in the bank'.

So throw the wounded veteran who can't work and needs disability to the dogs, it's just a bribe no one actually needs help.

May I ask what is the purpose of government anyway? Thought it was supposed to be, by the people, for the people. If it's not actually helping the people in any way what so ever? What exactly is it supposed to do?
