What the ever loving fuck America?!?

So Donald Trump is President-Elect the electoral college has done their job. Some are protesting and very upset that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, this has happened previously and the electoral college always wins. It’s a done deal and there is nothing anyone can do about this now. The protesting is fine as long as it’s kept civil. Burning flags, breaking windows, and looting is beyond ridiculous and needs to stop. These riots are not the opinion of the majority of the Democrat party, liberals, and anyone who voted for Hillary or against Trump. Regardless of what people say, it’s not liberals doing this it’s the uneducated animals that wanted an excuse to riot. The country is in turmoil over this election and it would be regardless of who won the Presidency. We were given 4 choices and technically only 2 if you know anything about politics. This in itself is not fair to the American people. Donald Trump has begun picking his cabinet and that should be the main topic of discussion everywhere. 

Protesting peacefully I can get behind, although I do not protest because rarely does it solve anything and nothing good usually comes out of it. Many are not happy with the election results of Trump winning. On the other side, many were not happy with President Obama winning. So the people complaining that the liberals are babies, and crying have no cause since the exact same thing has happened by Conservatives. Donald Trump also had a lot to say on twitter that reminds me of child-like mentality. Protesting is an American right as long as it is done peacefully and without violence this shouldn’t be a problem with anyone. The rioting is uncalled for and just an excuse to act like animals all races are doing this and it needs to stop. There is no good that can come from that. Although, it has only been happening in Oregon of all places.

lobbying2

In the US there are only two parties that are prevalent is something that everyone should be fighting against. I may be considered a liberal, but I do not believe everything the liberal/democratic party believe in. We should be able to have multiple parties with a wide range of opinions in congress. As far as party lines go Republicans and Democrats may have different opinions in many cases, but they all get money from the same lobbyists. It’s pretty disgusting and until that stops nothing in this country will truly be fair. Of course collecting money from lobbyists does not mean the politician agree with what these lobbyists are saying, but 9 times out of 10 they do what they are asking. They want that money to continue to roll in. Donald Trump has said he wants to take money out of politics, but considering his cabinet picks thus far, nothing could be further from the truth. 

bannon

According to many sources he has picked a white supremacist as his chief strategist Stephen Bannon. Exactly what does that say to the American people? Does he want to start or continue a race war? Lets face it during Donald Trumps campaign he said some pretty hateful things toward minorities, women, and Muslims. Still he won the election for President of the United States. It goes to show how the country feels about things. 48% of registered voters did not vote! It makes sense since many didn’t like either of the two running, but this is what you get when you don’t vote. A non vote shows you do not care who is running the country. Now I don’t like Hillary Clinton either, but I voted for her for the simple fact I was terrified Donald Trump would win. My vote in general doesn’t count for much since I live in Texas which is a big Republican state. Either way my conscious wouldn’t allow me not to vote. Many should have felt the same way. The election was not just about the Presidency it was also about some congressional seats. The Republicans have all of the branches of government as soon as Trump picks a Supreme Court Justice. This is unacceptable! Please get out and vote during the next election. If not for yourself for future generations.

If I was a Trump supporter I would be livid. It has been a week since the election and already he has doubled down on what he claims he was going to do. He said that he was going to get rid of the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) yet he has already said he was going to adjust it. Donald Trump had some big talk against the establishment, yet his choices of his cabinet thus far have been mainly establishment picks. This is just the beginning, Republicans may hold all branches of government but they surely wont let him do most of the things he claimed he would get done. They will not like the term limits and will surely not let that pass. After all these career politicians are mainly Republicans.

Donny the Devil

Donald Trump will be our President for the next four years. I am hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. Many things will be changing you can bet on that. Many have claimed the last time Republicans controlled congress and the Presidency was 1928, this is completely false. The last time George W Bush was in office and everyone knows just how well that went. Expect another financial crisis, that you can bet on. D0nald Trump wants to lower taxes for everyone, but has yet to talk about any cuts. This will crash our economy. Say what you will about President Obama, but since he was handed the Presidency he has fixed so many things the Republicans screwed up. If we learned anything from Reagan, trickle down economics just does not work. I rarely pray, but today and for the next four years I will be praying for our country and the future of my children.

P26151-27a.jpg

If you want change in this country voting for someone like Donald Trump will not be the way to do it. Voting is only half of it, you have the right to speak or write to your congressman. If you don’t believe in something the only thing we as Americans can do is stand together. The violence and racial tension in this country is only going to get worse. Everything seems to be getting worse. If you watch or read the news you see it. Monsters killing their children, people killing police men and women, the police killing citizens, rapists getting 2 years in jail, the list goes on. It’s sad and horrifying how violence seems to be a normal thing in the United States. We can do something about it, but only if we stand together. Republicans, Democrats, Christians, Muslims, Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians, Gays, Transvestites, Pro Choice, Pro Life, everyone can stand together. We as Americans choose to separate ourselves based on our beliefs. I’m quite sure everyone thinks killing and violence is wrong. Peace is what is needed in this country. As far as I’m concerned voting for Donald Trump was against everything we as Americans stand for (or are supposed to stand for). It’s heartbreaking. If something isn’t done now, this will only get worse.

It’s Almost Over!!

Thankfully this election is almost over. It has been hell from the media to social network regarding this circus. Personally, I think it lasts far too long. From E-mails to pussy grabbing it has been highly entertaining, that I can tell you. There are more than two candidates running, but you wouldn’t know that if you only watched Television and social media. This is the main reason 3rd party candidates do not stand a chance. It’s unfortunate, but it’s the truth. They refuse to even let the other candidates debate which does not seem right.

memes

Social media has been absolutely hateful regarding this election. Family and friends that disagree start an all out brawl being keyboard ninjas. As humorous and entertaining as that may be it’s also quite sad. Arguing with someone who doesn’t support your opinion is like talking to a wall. Not only that but friendships and relationships have ended over the difference of opinion. The false memes, pictures, and posts were numerous. I have yet to see many accurate memes out there, but some of these were just outright wrong. My favorite memes were about our current President. He has nothing to do with this election, he may support Hillary Clinton, but he’s also a democrat so that makes perfect sense. President Obama is laughing his ass off out of the Oval Office and who can blame him? All the good he has done for the United States and the problems he has fixed. People still find a way to bitch about him and even lie.The sad part is majority, of the time they don’t know what they are talking about and they believe any meme they see. Sometimes it’s because of Fox News. If you accurately look you will find that he has done more for this country than many Presidents. The most in my lifetime in fact.

hillary

The information that has come out since the election began is quite amusing. Anything about Hillary Clinton was already common knowledge. From the E-mails to Benghazi, she was pretty open about everything. The only thing that came out was wikileaks, which has been confirmed not to be a completely reputable site, having links to Russia, Trump, and the creator of Wilkileaks Julian Assange does not have such a great past. In fact he is hiding in an embassy in Europe to avoid being extrodited to Australia where he will be on trial for rape. Fact check has said that Hillary Clintons campaign manager was hacked and some of the emails are true, but some have been altered. Which to me does not make this a reputable site at all. If you have to alter information, clearly you had nothing to begin with. Fact Checking WikiLeaks

julian-assange

Donald Trump

There didn’t need to be any scandals coming out of Trumps campaign his mouth did the best job for him. Yet there were some either way. He likes to grab pussy apparently. He has had rape alligations brought up, one was disproved, but there are still several other law suits against him regarding forced sexual acts. If his mouth didn’t turn you off on him as President, nothing will. Most people made their choice on their candidate months ago. Nothing he has said has deterred many if any.

P26151-27a.jpg

56% of Americans are tired of this election, it has made the United States the laughing stock of the world. The fact that we have two candidates the majority of Americans can not even fathom voting for really doesn’t make sense. If you didn’t vote in the primary this is your fault. If you did and your candidate didn’t get chosen, it just goes to show how our political system actually works. Although, I do vote so I do believe that voting counts. At least if you don’t vote you have no room to complain. The main thing that is needed is an overhaul on the political system. It needs to be started in congress. The Presidental election is important, but the Congressional election is far more important.The gridlock in congress is deplorable. The fact that they even allow fillibusters, is ridiculous. These men and woman of congress have more vacation time and get paid higher than majority of Americans and don’t even do their job. They should all be fired.

On the Election eve, I predict Hillary Clinton will win and Donald Trump will not conceed and will say the election is rigged. Nostradamus predicted the exact same thing. I believe him, he’s been right far more than any other prophet. This election is in his writing, it’s facinating and I recommend anyone to research the information.

obama_sotu_2016_ap_img

No matter who wins I believe this county is in for a hell of a time coming soon. Whoever wins will be blamed for everything just like President Obama, but at least this next President will gain a better office than our great President did.

 

 

Sweet Home Chicago Stops A Trump Rally!

I grew up in a suburb about 10 minutes from Chicago called River Grove. I lived in the city of Chicago as an adult for a short time with my family. I have never been prouder of my city after watching the protestors stop a Trump rally, pretty impressive Chicago. The only problem was the violence, that is completely uncalled for. Hate makes people pretty heated and crazy. I can’t believe what’s happening. If you’re going to protest something you can’t be violent, no matter what the opposition says.

I have seen some insane comments from family, friends, and strangers. The majority of my family and friends are in Chicago or the vicinity. Some of my family and friends were praising the protestors, happy to stop the hate the Trump rallies bring. Most not condoning the violence, but happy no one was seriously injured and Trump was stopped. We do live in a free country and Donald Trump should be allowed to speak, even if a large majority of it is hate. We have that right to say what we want, that is why I’m allowed to write this today.

Comments from an NBC news post.                                      NBC News Who Does Wall Street Wants To Be President

 

Trump was able to go on stage he chose not to. “I spoke with law enforcement and made [the call to cancel] in conjunction with law enforcement, and I think we made a wise decision,” Trump said in a phone interview on MSNBC. He was afraid for his safety it had nothing to do with the Chicago police department in a statement Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Associated Press that the department did not recommend Trump call off the event and said they had sufficient manpower to cover the rally. Guglielmi said that the decision to shut down the event was made “independently” by the Trump campaign.

Some of my family and a few friends support Donald Trump. The reason I’ve been given by some for supporting this insane billionaire is “he speaks the truth”. They love the fact that he is uncandid and says what he feels and what he wants. Anyone who supports Donald Trump hates President Obama. Many have said “He’s not a pussy like Obama” or “No one will fuck with us if he’s our President.” for why they support this barbarian. Some supporters are angry with the Republican Party. They look at this as a slap in the GOP’s face.

I decided to take it to social media. I contacted a Trump supporter and a Democrat to look at the differences. I asked the same basic questions. Here are the answers I received. I decided to leave both parties anonymous even though they both agreed to be public. I do not know either of these people personally.

Who will or who did you vote for in the primary election?

GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480

 

Trump Supporter: “Michigan already had its primary and I voted for Donald Trump.”

voteblue

 

Democrat: “I am ………, retired professor, and I plan to vote in the Pennsylvania primary as a Democrat. I support both Senator Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton. Our primary is not an early one, and so I have not yet made a final ballot box choice.”

What makes your chosen candidate/party the choice for you?GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480

Trump Supporter:

“I have several reasons I will list them out. 1. I believe that there isn’t any other candidate that understands the global economy like he does. The others have ideas on it but ZERO experience in it.

2. Trump is right our current trade deals are all in favor of other countries and have created jobs in other countries and not in the US.
3. Trumps business tax plan is enticing for businesses to start investing in America again and not other countries
4. I like the fact to go along with his lower business tax plan he will also imply tariffs on good brought into this country in order to force fair and equal trade. I have been to other countries and finding something there that is American made is damn near impossible.
5. Trump is right about other countries making their currency fluctuate which causes US jobs to be outsourced to other countries. Let me give you a perfect example of this. 4 years ago a friend of mine was hired into an Automotive OEM and his job was to localize sourcing parts to be made here in the US to build the vehicles (if you check 4 years ago the currency of the other countries was more on par with the US dollar). Now he is tasked with outsourcing the parts to be made in other countries because the cost is cheaper.
6. Trump is also right about the illegals flooding our country. The illegals cost this country billions per year in services intended for American citizens. Also since they work for cheaper labor it suppresses wages from going up.”
voteblue
Democrat: “I believe that only the two Democratic candidates have the moral and intellectual seriousness and good will to serve. The Republican candidates seem to me unqualified — and worse.”
Do you normally vote, and if so what party do you normally lean toward when voting?GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480
Trump Supporter:

“Yes I normally vote in elections because I want our country to be great and it can only do that if the right leadership is in place. As for which party I normally vote republican or libertarian.

I believe in holding our elected officials accountable
After all they work for us. However it seems today that both the democrats and republicans seem to treat us like we work for them”
Do you always vote for the Democratic Party?
voteblue
Democrat: “Yes, starting with John F. Kennedy in 1960.”
I asked both people what they thought of the other parties “extreme” candidate.
What do you think of Bernie Sanders?
GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480

Trump Supporter: 

“I have a lot to post on this so I will do it in pieces. I don’t think very highly of Bernie Sanders. I think Sanders if gathering supporters by promising “free stuff” (college, healthcare, etc..). Sanders tax plan is extremely punitive in nature as the more successful you are the more his plan punishes you with higher taxes. We currently have a system like that in place now but Sanders plan is much worse and as somebody in the top tax bracket under Sanders plan I would pay another $17k a year in taxes.
Sanders is a socialist and socialism has failed in all other countries. Socialism creates a culture of laziness.
Sanders proposed business tax plan would drive even more businesses out of this country. I read his plan and then I have read some reviews on it and several analyst have said his plan would cause a -9.5% GDP. For those who though 2008 economy was bad that is nothing compared to -9.5% GDP.
Also I heard and read Sanders comments about the violence in Chicago yesterday that shut down a Trump rally. Trump isn’t to blame for that as his supporters weren’t the ones being violent until they were attacked….. That comment pushing people to continue to do the same thing at other Trump rallies made me lose all respect for Bernie.”
What do you think of Donald Trump?
voteblue
Democrat: “Donald Trump, who seems to me a clever narcissist and a con man, has called up some of the worst forces in America — bigotry, hatred, violence, xenophobia, racism, homophobia. His supporters are at least as scary as he is.”
Just because I can I will disprove all of the Trump Supporters claims….
1. & 2. Trump trades with countries we shouldn’t be trading with such as China and Mexico. He has his products made by slave labor. He is not making his own products in the US why would we trust him with everything.
3. & 4.  reasons why he supported Trump was the tax plan and money issue. Unfortunetly for him they’re all bad ideas according to anylasts and fact check.
5. This is the same as the other two reasons really. I think what our young supporter is talking about is the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership. This is what Bernie Sanders is trying to get rid of as well, but he’s called a communist for wanting to do the same thing.

 

You can decide for yourself who you are voting for, but spreading fear and hatred in either party is not the answer. The protests are great if they’re not violent. There has been violence at many political rallies recently and that’s just sad. If people can not discuss politics without beating the shit out of each other we’re no better than Taiwan.

Slick Willie Committing Voter Fraud.

It has been brought to my attention that former President Bill Clinton committed voter fraud yesterday in Massachusettes. While doing some research on the subject, it looks as if not only was voter fraud committed in Massachusettes, but also in Iowa. Although, Bill was not a part of this particular fraud in Iowa. I decided to do some investigating on my own. What I found may or may not surprise you.

baby1.jpg

Bill Clinton stood outside of a polling facility shaking hands, signing, and taking pictures. He gave a speech with a voice amplifier outside of a polling facility. His very appearance kept voters out of the polling facility for hours. Causing some voters to give up and leave. As a former President, Bill should know what the election laws are. They are not even allowed to put signs within 150 feet of a polling facility. Why would he think it was ok to give a speech at a polling location in front of the door? Not only did Bill do this, but the Mayor of New Bedford helped him. This is the poorest community in the state. Why do you think Bill would block voters in a poor community?

Secretary of State William F. Galvin told the New York Times that he had to remind election workers that “even a president can’t go inside and work a polling place.”

“He can go in, but he can’t approach voters,” Galvin said. “We just took the extra precaution of telling them because this is not a usual occurrence. You don’t usually get a president doing this.”

Slick Willy, his nickname comes into play here. There is footage as well as pictures of Former President Bill Clinton walking into polling facilities and speaking with people. Kissing old people, babies, and signing things for people. This is highly illegal, he is not allowed to wonder into polling stations and campaign for his wife. He knows these laws, he was the President. This is highly illegal and the Clinton campaign should be fined. The major media stations will not broadcast this. They seem to be paid by the Clinton Campaign, which makes a lot of sense she is leading in campaign money. The funds are there to spare. The media (other than Fox News) makes Hillary look good. They do not even report on the truth. Everything from the top to the bottom of the Clinton campaign is lies. Hillary has changed her mind so many times, it will make your head spin. When she gives a speech now, she sounds like Bernie Sanders. How convenient, prior to this campaign Hillary was more moderate than anything. She admits that in an interview, all of a sudden she’s a progressive liberal?

In Iowa, Bill did not show up to the polling stations that I know of however, there are several cases of voter fraud. One voter count, I was appalled by. It was done by a head count, they never did the computerized polls like they do everywhere else in the country. If Iowa is so important, why wouldn’t they have the best technology available? They count heads, it’s absolutely ridiculous!

The people need to know what they’re getting into with a Clinton vote. As far as I’m concerned after researching this and seeing so much more. I am convinced without a doubt that the Clinton campaign committed voter fraud yesterday to win Massachusetts. It was so close that Bill’s little stunt most likely cost Bernie Sanders the win in that state. I truly believe that if anyone but Bernie wins this election we are in big trouble. I’m starting to re-think the whole #VoteBlueNoMatterWho this broad scares me.

Super Tuesday!

images (2)

So it’s Super Tuesday, it’s been talked about for weeks and it’s finally here. For those who do not know, Super Tuesday is the day that 12 states vote in the primary election. The first Super Tuesday was back in 1988. It was started to promote and draw attention to the southern candidates. This day doesn’t always pick the winner however, it can’t hurt to do well. This is a big day in the Presidential Election, this separates the weak from the strong. This can be a game changer in both the Democratic and Republican Primaries. There are many factors here, home state advantage, voter turnout, and delegate votes.

b012e6f17b90a2a58b8e5e1684ebfae4

The only candidate running with a home state advantage is Ted Cruz. If Ted wins Texas he will continue his fight for the White House. If he loses, he will walk away with his tail between his legs. We will see if he loses and actually walks away. The man seems to have as big of an ego as Trump.

Super-Tuesday

Voter turnout is a big one in this election. It seems more Republicans have been voting in this election, many claim it’s because of Donald Trump. It does make sense. He is the Republican front runner and claims to be anti-establishment. For the Democrats it means more votes, many of the southern states are Red, which means a lower turnout than the Republicans will have. The more voters for the Democrats the better, there have been claims that if Bernie Sanders has a high voter turnout he can win. We will see how it stacks up after today.

6a00e5520572bb8834014e894de98f970d

The delegates are a big thing, but in order to run on the Presidential ticket when you are a Democrat, you need at least 2,383 delegates. There are 4,130 delegates total. Not all delegates pick a team, there are delegates that wait to decide their chosen candidate candidate. For the Republicans in order to run on the ticket, they need 1,237 delegates out of a total count of 2,339 delegates. Currently (prior to Super Tuesday) the Delegate counts are as follows.


Clinton-548

Sanders-87

Trump-82

Cruz-17

Rubio-16

Kasich-6

Carson-5

superdelegates_sac0213cd_zps231gfo1h

Democrats counts contain super delegates which is consists of all Democratic members of Congress, all Democratic governors, members of the Democratic National Party, former Democratic presidents and vice presidents, and other key party members. Superdelegates are free to vote as they wish. The last-minute superdelegates played a huge role in Obama getting the nomination over Clinton back in 2008.

The winner of Super Tuesday on either side has not always won the election.Michael Dukakis won as the Super Tuesday front runner in 1988. In 1992, Bill Clinton was the first candidate to win all of the southern states. Mitt Romney won 6 out of the 10 super states in 2012 and still lost the election. The point is it’s anyone’s game even after this is over. Super Tuesday results should be in sometime tonight. May the best candidate win!

Why #ImWithHim

I voted for Bernie, and let me tell you some reasons why. Hopefully, this educates some. The United States is in trouble, we can’t afford to have any of the bozo Republicans they have running.

Hillary Clinton

Hillary

I understand people change views on things, but some of her view changes are pretty extreme. She is changing her conservative views toward a more liberal country. She should be herself if she was being honest with us and herself she would be running as a Republican.

In 2004 Hillary was against gay marriage, today she is for gay marriage. How nice of her since it’s legal and most of the gay community is liberal.

That’s a pretty annoying video, but you see the point.

In 2008, Hillary said she stood by the 2nd amendment, stood by her vote for the Iraq War, and she opposed states issuing drivers licenses to illegal immigrants.

Corp Hill

Today she is singing a whole different tune. I can’t trust someone who just 8 years ago had a completely different opinion. Hillary will say anything she can to get the nomination and you can’t really blame her. The corporations backing her is beyond ridiculous. I believe the American Democrat voters will see her for the snake she is and vote for Bernie.

Bernie has not stopped fighting for his state.

Bernie Sanders

bernie-sanders

Bernie is the man, he has the same views and does the same things he did back in the 70s. Bernie wants to do what’s right for the people. He can’t be bought and he is honest. The man has lived through a lot of bullshit in this Country. We all deserve to have a leader that gives a damn about something more than their ego or who gives them the most money.

We all deserve to have a leader that gives a damn about something more than their ego or who gives them the most money.

I understand everyone’s doubts about Senator Sanders, the problem has been the Republicans and the Democrats from the start. Politicians do not want to lose their campaign funding, they love lobbyists why wouldn’t they? Hillary is no different when it comes to dirty political money, it’s disgusting how much money is being spent on her campaign. I for one hope more people vote for Bernie, he is the only one that seems to be willing and able to save the middle class from extinction.

 

 

Trump Supporters Are Fucking Crazy

Two states have chosen Donald Trump as the Republican front-runner in the 2016 Primary election. It leads any reasonable person to believe the majority of voting Republicans in South Carolina and New Hampshire have severe mental illness or they are intellectually retarded. Then again, they are registered Republicans so I guess, it’s pretty clear it’s both.

.south-carolinaNewHam

Mental illness is real, this I know for a fact. Having worked in mental health, I can tell you that they walk amongst you frequently. Many of the people with mental illness I have encountered were bible thumpers, so that checks off that theory.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Donald Trump suffers from Narcissism if that wasn’t apparent. The man has sued everyone he has ever had a disagreement with. He is currently filing a lawsuit against Ted Cruz over a political ad.

Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

A narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships, work, school or financial affairs. You may be generally unhappy and disappointed when you’re not given the special favors or admiration you believe you deserve. Others may not enjoy being around you, and you may find your relationships unfulfilling.

Narcissistic personality disorder treatment is centered around talk therapy (psychotherapy). –Mayo Clinic

Over 30% of adults in the US self-report mental illness. These are just the people that realize they have a problem. A person like Donald Trump does not know they have a problem. So they wouldn’t report it, the number of actual mentally ill  people in the US is very high. Some have called it an epidemic.

mental-illness-awareness-week-nami

Not only did states close mental health facilities, but many that need to be medicated are unable to pay for it. The state mental health facilities may have been inhumane at times, but instead of shutting them down there should have been corrections made to provide quality healthcare. In any case, apparently the mentally ill crazies in New Hampshire and South Carolina are voting.

Updated 2/21 Disclaimer: In no way am I making fun of mental illness, just people that vote for Donald Trump.  I am an advocate for mental illness sufferers. Mental illness is real.

The Tea Party Elections

Ever since Governor Scott Walker decided to take collective bargaining off the table in Wisconsin, there has been much talk about Unions funding elections. This is a true fact, private and public unions do in fact contribute to the Democratic Party. However, there has been little talk of who funds the Republican Party or the Tea Party. Much research has been done to give the actual facts.

The November 2010 election is what this is focused on. Just one election, this factual data will show that the Unions do partly fund the Democrats, also will show that the Corporations fund the Republicans and Tea Party. There has been things said to the extent of your tax money and union dues have been spend on the Democratic party. Remember what this is about, Government and who is the more dirty is not the question here. The majority of the United States Government is crooked, but the Republican Tea Party brings this to a whole new level. If tax payers fund the Democrats, lets be clear to say that tax payers are also funding the Republicans by way of the Corporations that own the United States currently.

Research has shown that Blue Cross/Blue Shield is a major contributor to the Republican Party. They have funded the majority of Senators listed, although not all in the top five. It makes one wonder why an insurance company would invest in politics. Obama Care or the Patient Protection Affordable Health Care Act, seems to be the main reason. It makes more sense why the Te Party is fighting this so much. There have been numerous lies put out about the health care plan. In all actuality it is a good thing for the country. That will be discussed at a later date, for now this is all about election funding. Koch Industries is also one that funded most of these Republican Senators. There is a video campaign ad above from a Senator with one of the highest funds that were available to them.

Unfortunately, there were no campaign adds for Richard Blumenthal on youtube, only his opponent, she tried very hard.
After doing the research a few questions arose. For example with the Democrats ActBlue, what exactly is ActBlue?
ActBlue is a democratic fundraiser, anyone is able to donate to this. It is not funded by the Unions, it is just a place to donate to the Democratic elections.

Next question who is Elliot Management? Elliot Management is a private investment partnership involved in a diversified trade program, sounds like wall street or a bank, you be the judge.

Everyone has heard of Koch Industries, but exactly what do they do, besides funding all the Republican Candidates?
This is right off the website, their mission statement, if that is what you want to call it is pretty long. Link at the bottom of the page. “We have long been committed to creating real, sustainable value for all of society. For decades, Koch companies and Koch foundations have supported education and social progress. These philanthropic efforts include support for educational institutions, foundations and programs that study and promote market-based solutions to societal challenges; protect, conserve and enhance natural resources; improve quality of life; and support human services and at-risk youth. “

 

 Quite a lot of money went into these individual Senators, this list is only the new candidates for the 2010 election. Millions are spent on elections every term. The smear campaigns this money was spent on is appalling, there are less voters when these smear campaigns come out. People figure that both parties are not good, or they are unable to make up their minds. Good old fashioned debating would make more sense. This way there would be no need for millions toward campaigns. Most Americans would rather hear what the candidate is planning on doing, instead of hearing why their opponent is a terrible person. The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of unlimited spending toward a campaign. It was said that it would be against the first amendment to limit election funds. No one will argue that free speech is a powerful and great thing US citizens have. However, there are problems with it as well, using free speech and attaching it to money for a campaign seems Unconstitutional. If you feel the same way and think it is unconstitutional there is a link on the right side of this page, a petition to ban corporate spending on campaigns as well as cap the amount to be spent on a campaign.
