I am sure that you will defend your "values" as they are handed down by neocon websites, son. You were not born being a torture supporter. You didn't pick it up in school or church or the elks club, big government boy.

Your pretense that the purple stains around your mouth are not from koolaid? No one of ANY stripe is buying, kid.
Yup, a tacit surrender on the topic. Whenever he brings up "torture" on a given subject you know he can no longer coherently discuss the subject at hand. Nor does he want to because the more in depth a subject goes the more his disdain for the consitution and individual liberty is revealed.

look, cannon is right about this...this country started out free enterprise, we are now welfare capitalists...we can either go into socialism...WHICH IS WHERE WE ARE HEADED...or just take a conservative u turn and go back to free enterprise..there is no constitutional right to a stock market or a federal reserve...none what so ever...i would argue that the constitution is against such entities

I agree with.



I disagree with you in general. As far as media ownership, although the 1996 Telecommunications Act signed by Clinton severly relaxed media ownership rules it is still not a free for all. I used to work in the industry and am familiar with them. Here is a website that will explain the existing rules:

http://www.commoncause.org/site/pp.asp?b=2030875&c=dkLNK1MQIwG

Your second idea is an example of an overreaching fed gov. Telling people what stocks they can own, what boards they can serve on is border line fascism.


I agree. Compaines, corporations, wall street, should sink or swim on their own.



I agree to returning to state appointed senators with term limits. Quite a few states are working on creating a constitutional conventional with that as one of the topics. Add term limits to both the house and the senate.



I agree.



Disagree. Citizens United, and the concept of unions, organizations, and yes, corporations which are all discussed in citizens united says that a group of people do not lose their rights because they are part of an organization. GE is not a person. A Union is not a person. But those that comprimise the group are. And they do not lose their rights because they formed a group.
For bigsky. Go to the actual post to see the context.

I don't disagree with you. Yes the koch brothers are trying to influence elections. The other side of the coin is so are Buffett and Soros. And all of them do it for the benefit of their companies. Where the problem is most don't want to admit that the billionaires on their side are doing for their own purpose, not altuistic reasons. So the cycle continues.

On the other hand in order to reverse citizen's united, (the part of the conversation you joined at) we would have to remove the freedom of association, liberties, from all these different groups of people. Not sure I support doing just that. A basic understanding of what citizen's united actually did is needed as well. It does not allow corporations, unions, non profit corporations, etc to pour unlimited amounts into campaigns. It does not allow foreign money to be used. It does not allow direct contributions from unions or corporations. It simply addresses the electonic electioneering aspect. I blame the President for the misconceptions and the left, all stemming from his SOTU address where he "lied" about what that decision does. So we get these progressive posters spewing garbage that is not true.

i agree with all you said...where we differ is that i dont believe that this country needs publicly traded corporations. we need jean makers in every state...auto makers all over the country...we need many fail safes...our economy should not be tied to a stock market...i dont even dabble in the **** thing and it determines my financial future? well that is ****...i should be able to do that not some **** in new york...do away with all of it i say...

How is that?

How were people being denied those rights before citizens united?

Are corporations people, my friend? Are corporations people? Because THAT is what I find in you, when all of the **** and flowers are past - Mitt's mutt, mouthing mixed up monkey malarkey like a moronic mook.

God created people. People created corporations. Corporations created morons. Morons bought the idea that corporations are people. So, what came first, the chicken or the progressive, nanny state, neocon asswipe?
