    Ummmm, let's see, they spend about $300 million talking about a Gubbamint that spent $3.8 trillion.

    It's less than 1/10 of 1%.

    Its really bizzare to see Americans cheering for corporations to take over our election system.



    Do you know what they call countries run by corporations?

    No, what's bizzare is seeing Americans upset that we have the freedom of speech guarenteed to us through our Constitution.

    Here is an idea, stop using the government to steal money from people and maybe they wont worry about interfering in government to stop you. What a concept!

    The NYTimes Company is the only company that should enjoy First Amendment rights.
