    American Crossroads Summary

    Speechnow.org v. FEC

    How Karl Rove's Billionaire-Backed Super PAC Will Be Election Game Changer - Forbes

    American Crossroads has collected more money in a short time than John McCain's entire campaign spent. We know Scott Walker spent 7 to 1 over his Democratic challenger. Some right wingers dispute that, but over the next few weeks, as deadlines for reporting disclosure come due, we will find out the "truth". According to those living in Wisconsin, some have said nearly every other commercial was an ad for Scott Walker. Those numbers will also become available.

    In Virginia, Crossroads GPS, which was formed with the help of Karl Rove, former political adviser to President George W. Bush, and the chamber have aired 1,980 ads, compared with the 380 spots run by the Democrat-backed Majority PAC on Kaine’s behalf.

    Senate Democrats Outspent 3 to 1 on Ads by Super-Pacs - Bloomberg

    The story is the same everywhere. And look at the Republican base. Sure, their leadership are all enormously wealthy, but look at the base. Look at conservatives in Mississippi, the most conservative state is also the poorest. The more conservative a state is, the more poor the majority of it's people. Some say, "look at Texas". Yea, look at Texas:

    So the question here is, "Does the Republican base really think RW Billionaires are "on their side"?" You know these guys are buying up Republican politicians for a reason. Don't any right wingers wonder why? What is their agenda? Don't you care?

    I don't need billionaires to be on my side...I'm enough of a handful on my own side all by myself.

    What I certainly do know is that socialist assholes like Boiking and the DNC certainly aren't on my side.

    Tell me, is George Soros really on your side? If so doesn't that make you a hypocrite? And if not, why on earth do you support the legislation his organizations write and pass to congress that are designed solely to make him richer?

    The truth is you can tell where progressives are weak by what areas they attack us on.

    Billionaires bought Obama in 2008, now they're buying Romney in 2012.

    What, you don't like Freedom of Choice? Commie Bastard! :mad:

    Don't you bother to do any research?

    Examples of "liberal billionaires" and what they do with their money:

    Gates - wants to end malaria

    Buffet - wants to raise taxes on other billionaires

    Do you want me to link to a list of what Republican billionaires want? Always so worried about Democrats while getting buttfucked from behind. So tell us, what do Republican billionaires want. Be careful. I already know.

    Maybe Buffet should pay his own taxes before he ask others to pay more.
