    Do you know why corporations and rich people spend all of their cash trying to buy political party? Because it works. The 1% have the power because the 99% are morons.
    Wait are you being serious here?

    Of course I'm being serious. I don't troll here, and anyone who knows my history realizes that.

    If we're really going to have free speech in this country, we don't ask who, or for that matter what, might be offering the speech, or question the content of the speech. The minute we start trying to limit it because of where it originated or what it's about, we no longer have free speech.

    It has started to dawn on me as to why everyone here is so up in arms over corporate speech in general and corporate political speech specifically. It has nothing to do with where it originated or how much money they spend on it. It's the effectiveness of that speech. If it wasn't working, none of you would give a rats azz about corporate speech.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Down to 8, then Elimination Chamber, and have the final two be Money In The Bank.

    Election Day can be Hell In The Cell or Tables, Ladders, and Chairs.

    Great idea, but a "White House on a Pole" match would be awesome

    Hence the problem, when campaigns only listen to the people that give them large donations you end up with a plutocracy.

    He's still smarter and saner than Trump, even if it meant Sandra Lee would be the First Shack-Up.

    Gillibrand prepping for a 2020 run by distancing herself from the Clintons? One Clinton sycophant seems to think so.

    This is very good news because it cuts off at the pass attempts to peddle some sort of half-as-sed Third Way nonsense. It doesn't mean we'll get a full-on disucssion of economic justice -- for that we need Liz -- but it does mean we'll have genuinely liberal themes being discussed and not another rerun of Now's That's What I Call the 90s!

    Oh, and this also wins every general election from 2030 on, because the GOP reaction is going to be something out of Richard Spencer's wet dreams.

    Cuomo 2.0 is in the nooz. Really nothing to get in a palaver about.
