AHHH Democracy at work

first you buy the votes

Democratic precinct committeeman to 10 months in prison and two years of supervised release for his role in a vote-buying scheme...


then you buy the congressmen

a conservative advocacy group picked up the $10,000 tab for a chartered plane and helicopter flight


now I know the vote buying is definitely illegal. But they were giving $5-$10 per vote to citizens(?) fro a specific vote. Do you think the 10 large spent on Brownback was for a specific vote or a slate of issues. Brownback said in an interview. "I was asked to speak at each of them, and my request was just to get me there and back." By the way, I've been to San Antonio and I just can't get my mind arond the trip costing 10 grand. unless the Senator was on a partially paid trip to tibet. The Buddhist association paid to et him there and Robertson's group had to pick up the tab for the long trip to Texas.

First, you publically finance elections...then you have the same activity plus less disposable income for Americans. That is the MTJ way.

MTJ, the evil republican politicians and PACs vs. the innocent democrat politicians and PACs no longer works. They are all criminals. Just vote for the ones who offer less theft by the government. Oh wait, you are black. You can't vote republican.

Man, your racism pisses me off, MTJ. You bought that bullshit hook, line, and sinker. If you would like to see the effects of liberalism, look at the output of the black community in the sixties and look at it now. Liberalism did more damage than slavery and legal anti-black discrimination to the blacks; it broke the black family. The facts speak for themselves.

Libs = the real enemy

I know East St. Louis is a ghetto, but $10 votes? Perhaps, I should start selling touch-screen machines. Maybe we will see him in Congress one day.
