    The Chamber of Commerce takes donations from foreign entities and puts it into the same bank account that they use for political ads. IF TRUE, this means that non-americans can have an unlimited influence on our elections.

    Simple question here: Should foreign money be taken to influence American elections?

    According to the Huffingtom Post article "Exclusive: Foreign-Funded ‘U.S.’ Chamber Of Commerce Running Partisan Attack Ads" it appears that this may be the case. Looks like another reason America is having difficulty solving the long-term problems facing us. Unless of course you think foreign interest equals American interest.

    Thank you Roberts for that ruling in Citizens United. Who the fuck didn't know that this was going to be a loophole for foreign cash to influence our elections. Anyone who doesn't think that the Chinese, Russians, Saudis, and India don't have a strong interest in the outcome of our elections have their heads up their ass. They now have a legal means of dumping millions into it.

    I'm for Republicans playing one iota dirtier than demonRats. Winning is winning and since demonRats are gonna cheat, Republicans need to cheat BETTER.
