Well shit, why don't they just let the companies just outright buy votes?

Ahh forget it. Mooz already pointed it out, and summed it up well.

Here.

Mods, feel free to delete this redundant thread of redundancy.

Only two threads on this?

Yeah, pretty soon we are going to have government run healthcare for everyone. Mandated by the corporations at twice the cost.

This is just kind of scary...

Totally, completely, and undeniably. It's the conservatives on the court looking out for the other conservative clowns on the hill. It's so damn obvious and transparent.

Seriously, they should have just put a price tag on votes. Cut the bullshit and get to the point. Just tell the corps for $X, they can drop an extra vote in the ballot box for whomever they want.

this proves that it does matter which party you vote for.

I wouldn't worry about it. I believe that Obama is working on a plan to repeal the First Amendment. Since health care is dead, he should have more time to work on it.

Why do you left wingers always go back to Bush. He is irrelevant now. I was the first one yelling about the Patriot Act. Bush did some very bad things and the Patriot Act was probably the worst. Bringing up the fact that Bush would let protesters say anything they want, but made them stand in a separate area to avoid having every speech become a shouting match seems somewhat trivial.
