Oh I definitely believe conservatives are the worst of the two sides.

That said, this thread is about cheering on Republicans for raising more donor money than Democrats, is it not?



I thought the article was just stating some facts. Is the financial position of the DNC not what is mentioned here?

And you are free to believe whatever you wish, they are all crooks, but I guess we all need a teddy bear to hold sometimes, so you snuggle up tight.

The GOP is doing well because they have more wealthy corporate donor money then the DNC. That, and the Koch Bro’s are set to spend at least a half of billion dollars to further their greedy agenda. Yay, let’s celebrate money as free speech, Super PACs, and multi national corporations as people!

America Democracy is dead.


America democracy has always been dead since it has never been a democracy. It's a constitutional republic. This is highly disturbing to he MSM and the DNC. They keep trying to make America a democracy where mob rule wins the day for them. It's the same reason they were so upset over the "popular vote" or in other words, the MOB vote...

Funny thing about the entire thing is if either party could put up a candidate that didn't make your skin crawl they would not need hundreds of millions of dollars to convince people they are not as bad as they look.

Agreed.

By making money equal to free speech, the assumption was people with money were successful and “better” and thus deserved more say in our democracy. That was an epic fail.

Re: www.foxnews.com...

Only $400,000 available for the "big comeback nationwide"? Good luck with that! The DNC is getting exactly what their leaders in Congress voted for in December. No $$$ for anyone.

The DNC has let, or helped, Hillary Clinton literally destroy the Democratic Party. Good riddance at this point.

Dear Democrats,

It is illegal to throw US currency into a dumpster fire...

Oops, I said “illegal”
Let me try again...
It is “undocumented” to burn US currency...
Hmm, doesn’t have the same effect...oh well, words do matter after all

Anyhow, cry me a river liberals...

-Chris


Well, the paper currency is just a "document" that you carry around with you.

So, you should have said, "It's illegal to un-document the currency."

Oh wait.

Crypto currencies don't have a document form, they are undocumented.

Does that mean all cryptos are illegal?

Of course they do. They followed in the footsteps of R’s because they’d be dumb not to, but that’s no excuse for doing it. Wanna know why American politicans are so corrupt and don’t work for the interests of the American people? It’s because they don’t serve them, only those with the biggest bank accounts. Yet, everyday Americans from both camps mostly don’t realize this or want to fight against money ruining their govt because their news outlets, like the OP: Fox News, doesn’t talk about it and in fact supports it 100%. MSNBC, CNN, Breitbart, Alex Jones, and all the rest don’t talk about it and don’t make it an issue Americans should be concerned with.


Well naturally I appreciate the nice spin off to a different topic.

Bottom line, my article was about the DNC being broke and I guess no one disputes that issues. But wait, Nixon and Bush bad. Yeah, I know.

I don’t think that they have a message or a platform because they don’t have an effective leader. So, I get it! They don’t.

Theyve been hemorrhaging money left and right due to so many cracks in fronts of their collective criminal side projects.

Hillary was a huge black hole. Maybe even record setting if we knew exactly how much money was illegally used by the DNC to directly support her campaign.

Hell the payouts to their own members to rob Bernie must have been astronomical. I imagine even Soros doesnt have the ability to wash and distribute endless billions without disrupting his daily operations. His power is also more smoke and mirrors.

The envelope was pushed, the illusion shattered, and now they are broke. Also, this isnt even over yet.

Speaking as a life long democrat, since the halcyon days of Gary Hart...oops...

Why are people supposed to vote Democrat again...? Every single planning meeting I've gone to since the Donald was elected has degenerated into "WE HATE TRUMP SOOOOO MUCH!!!" scream fests that nothing is accomplished at a strategic level. I had hoped, sort of, that it was a local phenomena...but given what I saw during the SOTU, and its aftermath (ugg, Kennedy), I see very well that it's not. Not sure why I was surprised...

The only strategy that I've heard is "WE HATE TRUMP SOOOOO MUCH!!!", and that's, quite simply, not gonna work. If the GOP doesn't have a super majority in the Senate I'll be shocked...maybe even both Houses. ...and the Dems won't have anyone to blame but themselves.

They hate Trump so much they will threaten 1.8 M Dreamers a path to Citizenship.........let that sink in.

They haven't lost their way, they don't even know where they are

According to the Democrats, people are angry about have bigger paychecks and more spending money.

And they think they will win........

Get your head around this...

EVERY Congressional Democrat voted AGAINST tax-cuts, bonuses, pay-raises and additional jobs, for BLUE COLLAR EMPLOYEES!!!


Who in their right mind would send $1 to any local, state, or national Democrat's campaign when the party has given every American the "F-You!" middle finger?

I agree. Democrats don’t need money. We just need to wait. When mass medical bankruptcies start and clinics and hospitals close.

Yeah. We will have to deal with elections being bought for awhile. The GOP has the rich donors. But sometimes the under dog can win in America.

Just quit it with "only the Republicans have rich donors" statements. The Democrats raised more last election and have big donors.

Open secrets top ind donors

No, you implied that only Republicans
have big donors. Both parties do.

Sorry for pointing out the obvious fallacy of your statement.

Nice of you to go into attack mode when shown proof.
