Democrats reveal the evil Republicans’ super secret plan to “buy the election”

by editor on October 21, 2010

Cue the ominious voice over that reveals the dastardly right wing plot to take over America:

ANNCR: (Ominous) You’ve seen the ads. Millions being spent by right wing groups to buy an election. All from secret donors. What’s not a secret is why. Republicans and their corporate buddies want to be back in charge. Wall Street writing its own rules again. Big oil and insurance companies calling the shots. More jobs shipped overseas. Millions in attack ads to put the corporate interests back in charge. If they’re in charge, what happens to you? Fight back. Visit Democrats dot org slash secret money. The Democratic National Committee is responsible for the content of this advertisement.

C’mon, Democrats, Halloween is right around the corner. Why doesn’t this commercial include Dick Cheney with blood dripping from his fangs?

I wanted to write a note to be able to thank you for all the lovely ideas you are sharing here. My extensive internet lookup has now been compensated with reputable knowledge to talk about with my company. I would admit that most of us readers actually…

Guys, this is not supposed to be a partisan issue. All of us deserve to _know_ who is funding the the candidates.

Funny how this comes up now that Conservatives are poised to take back some control over the libtards run-away train. No one seemed to care back in 2007 when there was a real need for disclosure and investigation of at least one particular politician running for high office. Although I agree that political offices should not be “for sale”, especially to foreign interests, the timing of this couldn’t be any more ludicrous than someone wanting an arson investigation after they’ve built a new house on the site of the one that burned down.

Term limits, a major reduction of salary & benefits, and a major reduction of power & size of government… that is the real solution.

So you’d rather not know who is donating the bulk of funds to a politician you are voting for? If you read something that looks like a scientific journal, but it turns out that it is sponsored by the drug company Merck, you would read it with a larger grain of salt, no?

Or if your nutrition blog were sponsored by Pepsi-Co?

We need to know who is telling us what we are hearing. In real life, we usually can tell. Our friend tells us to buy new clothes is different from the local mall telling us to buy new clothes. Those messages are entirely not the same thing.

If this would only hurt the “libtards” why were the Republicans the ones blocking passage of this bill in the Senate? If this is incriminating for Democrats why are they voting for it? As pointed out in the Washington Post article, this discloses the special interest groups behind both parties. If it were passed, I’m sure the convervative media will take the opportunity to point out how much moolah unions are donating to the democratic party, rather than boycott the use of the disclosed information.

You’re missing the point… it’s too little, too late. This should have been instituted decades ago when it could have prevented all manner of calamity… the only reason it’s a big hairy deal now is because the libtards want ammo to use against Conservatives in the upcoming elections. I’ll tell you what… make it retroactive and demand disclosure for the past 5 decades and you’ll see the libtards screaming bloody murder about their ACLU style right to privacy. As a matter of fact, you’ll see nearly all politicos from both sides screaming about their privacy. This has always been a dirty business.

I’m not sure I understand your logic. Something that “should have been instituted decades ago” is not worthy of being instituted now? The fact that politics is a dirty business means that we’re better off not regulating it and not having any disclosure? This logic could be applied to many things – it has always sucked in the past so we’d better let it continue to suck. And why would it give liberals more ammunition against conservatives than vice versa?

What about the millions of dollars pent by the Democrats to run attack ads on Republican candidates. In my area we have multiple ads paid for by the Democratic National Committee, from a group called The Worker (sounds sort of comrade-like doesn’t it) as well as those put out by the candidates themselves. And those ads don’t have the “I approve this message” at the end, so presumably they are posted with no input from the candidate. Excuse me, WHO is trying to buy the election?

Actually, the Democrats have unwittingly bought it for us themselves, paying for it with their usual coinage of lies, deceit, denials in the face of damning evidence, cronyism, favoritism, nepotism, and the “big bucks” of passing unwanted unconstitutional legislation WITHOUT EVEN READING IT on orders from the Anointed one and his lap-dogs Reid and Pelosi.

So boo-hoo. Get over it. Progressives. You brought it on yourselves. You voted party-line for that Health-care bill. Now you’re going to see what REAL change is all about. 😉

I’m sure my retirement health insurance company is donating to the Republicans also. That’s why something that was provided at (originally) no cost to me, has been increased 250%. In one year. And I’m sure this is just the start of it.

Thank you Barackadoo!!!

Actually, anything divided by zero is undefined.

That is true. I am basing this on what my former company is paying for the insurance, and what the PPO’s option increase is. I am on the HMO, which was at no cost to me. Now, it is costing me $500 a year.

Sorry for the confusion.
