    As long as they're American elites, it's not illegal.

    Exactly what idiots fought to have corporations treated as people? Which party fought for the law to give donations of a political nature by companies?

    Solution have budgets for both political parties paid from public funds and not one penny more from any
    private source personal, union or company. It won't happen though because that would really level the playing field and that scares the shit out of both parties. Someone with some balls that isn't a millionaire may actually be able to get elected and not be beholding to anybody and not out to make themselves
    richer.

    Gee, aren't neo republicans and Libertarians the one's always whining about how leftist and radically socialist Democrats are? You and others seem a bit confused. When it is "convenient" to call Dems "in bed" with corporate capitalists, you're all over it, when it is "convenient" call democrats radical leftist socialists (equivalent of communists) that applies too. Apparently you and some others seem to think no one notices how you do that.

    It's the same with claiming the U.S. is the highest taxed nation in the world, UNTIL someone mentions how happy people in Scandinavian nations are. THEN you'll hear from the neo republican/Libertarian contingent about how highly taxed THEY (Scandinavians countries) are.

    How long are Americans that do not pay attention to the contradictions of their so called "leaders" or those hired to be propagandists in this country or from other countries, going to keep ignoring those contradictions and NOT hold those making them, accountable, INSTEAD of those the propagandists are trying to claim hold two completely opposing characteristics simultaneously?

    You mean like the "evidence" that had "leaders" getting crowds of neo republicans to chant "lock her up" at their RNC convention? The same "evidence" the current POTUS uses to claim his business and actions should be ignored, but time and energy and money should be spent going after his political opponent? One he once called a wonderful person, like all the other people he appoints and nominates for positions he later Tweets (stabs) in the back and fires?



    Who vetted this POTUS anyway and can't we do like he says we should do for refugees? Suspend his presidency "until we can figure out what the hell is going on"?

    You guys are quite amusing with your fantasies and confused minds.

    GOP strategist Steve Schmidt On MSNBC with Nicole Wallace yesterday:

    We worked on two presidential campaigns at high levels and there weren't any Russians around. I don't think there were Russians round the Obama campaign or the Kerry campaign either. This campaign had Russians all over the place!
    Wallace added that it was even weirder that everyone on the Trump campaign couldn't remember meeting any of these Russian.

    I thought campaigns accepting foreign contributions was illegal?

    You brought up that subject. My top post was about Russian money pouring into Republicans. I gave 5 sources. It is not my job to prove what you posted. That is on you!
