"The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits." ~ Thomas Jefferson "I think myself that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious." ~ Thomas Jefferson “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence – it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and fearful master.” ~ George Washington

You thin corporations had an effect on this election? Boeing, Westinghouse, Hawker Beechcraft, Husqvarna, Darden Restaurants, Rockwell Collins, Rocketdyne, Cummins, Zynga, Bristol Myers, Corning. Dow Chemical all lost and are laying off accordingly
Thats the obamacare implementation. Companies like darden restaurants just went to part time for their restaurants workers. Now their workers still have no ins, no overtime, less pay and have to pay a fine on top of it to the govt.
Well, I said political process, not election. Even so, they did try to buy an election result. They just did a poor job of it. At some point, a turd is a turd, no matter how much you spend to dress it up.
I guess when indivduals contribute to a candidate, they're not buying an election. In a free country we all get to support vocally and financially who we wish. There is nothing wrong with that.
In a free country I wouldn't be bombarded with millions of dollars of lies and misinformation on a daily basis.
Truth is a matter of perception. I just listened to 18 months of campaining about the war on women. When all I see is a war on successfull people.
And that hyperbole so saturates our public space that it is nearly impossible to have an actual discussion. Access to healthcare/contraception is a legitimate conv. we should be able to have without calling it a war on women or calling anyone a slut.
I disagree that it's worth a discussion. There is no law in existence or proposed that bans access to contraception or healthcare. The debate is whether or not someone else should pay for you. But I agree we could do without the name calling.
The problem is, to put it mildly, there are more ignorant and idiotic people in America than well informed ones. Just last night I watched people interviewed say that Obama spent LESS than any President in history... its sad how misinformed some are
