    Solution: money to BUY misleading ads for conning fools

    Democrat VICTORY in health care reform? Now that is really DUMB -- they've destroyed FREE medical care for the poor -- and trampled hell out of individual right to choose

    Solution: slander, lies, and vicious snarling dog fights BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOTHING SUBSTANTIVE to suggest -- and not a clue one why so many are so very pissed off.

    Just more of the same: listen to Pelosi and Obama -- and ignore the citizen voices they never hear

    This is good news. It means the Dums are already conceding races even before they've really started. They start from a losing position and it can only get worse.
    Excellent!

    The Republican in my district was anticipating this. One of his strategies was to raise so much money that the Democrat leadership would write off that campaign and not funnel money in. And if they did, well we have the money to match it and gives other candidates a better opportunity to win in their districts. It's a win win for us.

    Solution Take money out of the equation. Federally fund all campaigns, and significantly shorten the Campaign length.

    Just saying.

    I rather like money as a natural check to keep incompetant people out of the race

    'Zackly. You will never get money out of campaigns. Outlaw contributions and you get non profits etc. Then you get blatant exercises in unconstitutional law like McCain-Feingold.
    We need more money. Unlimited amounts from anyone. Only caveat is it must all be disclosed with 72 hours in an opaque manner. No hiding behind Buddhist nuns.

    If any or all of the following are history it will be a success for me.....Pelosi loses the Speaker of the House because the GOP gets the majority,Boxer and Reed get sent packing.I will be happy with any of that.

    More like a body going shocky, shutting down all distal functions in advance of the death rattle.

    Is this concept new to you?

    It's called politics.
