    Any bets about how long it takes the Democrats to condemn him for forming the Super PAC to end all Super PACS? My guess is that billion doller number he was thrwoing arond earlier is going to look like chicken feed.

    By the way, who was it that said that Democrats don't know who to do this stuff?

    The Super PACs are bad, bad news. They will neutralize our individual votes into nothing.

    We don't always have to like that which must be done.

    Of course they are.

    They give people with big bucks more access to both the electorate and politicians.

    But conservatives are the ones that brought this about. They shouldn't be complaining when the other side is playing the game better.

    Maybe republicans will get so outraged that they will work on reform of PACs? Probably not. Any outrage from republicans is nothing but an act, they built this monster on purpose.

    Truthfully, they do just the opposite. People with big bucks were never restricted in access to elections or politicians. Even before Citizens United people like the Koch brothers were perfectly free to take their own money and buy ads in support of, or attacking, any candidate.

    The fact that you don't know that speaks volumes.

    Actually there were restrictions including the one that was the only question before the court, no airtime buys 6 weeks before an election, but the court had to be activist and proclaim that any restrictions were unconstitutional.

    The fact I didn't know what?

    That the rich had more access to the electorate and politicians? Yeah...they have and do.

    But it's conservatives that have been solidifying that. I remember back to a time..probably before you were born..when if you made a political statement on any form of electronic media, the opposition were allowed to respond and for little or no cost.. That was over with Ronnie boy.

    It's hard to educate people that don't want to learn.
