    In this country, the people with money win. Corporations want Republicans in office and the reason is clear. Remember, these are people who held millions of unemployed hostage to push tax cuts that benefited the rich.

    Unemployment benefits: not until Bush tax cuts pass, Senate GOP says - CSMonitor.com

    Now that's from the Christian Science Monitor, not some left wing rag.

    Take the BP "spill". Obama got 20 billion from BP to clean up their mess. Republicans apologized to BP and to show the sincerity of their apology, they blocked Obama from any investigation.

    See what "less regulations" gets you?

    Republican Donor Simmons Seeks Rule to Fill Texas Nuclear Waste Dump - Businessweek

    Republicans say corporations are better than unions. Unions are fighting for benefits, retirement, health care. Corporations are fighting for dirty air and water, nuclear waste dumps, poison, birth defects. It has to be indoctrination that makes Republicans support such destructive policies.

    The worst part of all, Republicans wanted the cost of the BP cleanup to be moved to the middle class. It's why they said corporations shouldn't have to pay for "accidents". Then who pays? If not those who created that "accident"?

    Republican billionaires want laws that will limit what they have to pay for their disasters. USMB Republicans agree. They seem to believe that making people who harm the country pay for their damage IS the damage.

    And you think you are safe? Think again:

    Homeowners losers in high court ruling | Government free to take property at any time

    In a scathing dissent, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor said the decision bowed to the rich and powerful at the expense of middle-class Americans.

    In dissent, O'Connor criticized the majority for abandoning the conservative principle of individual property rights and handing "disproportionate influence and power" to the well-heeled.

    "The specter of condemnation hangs over all property," O'Connor wrote. "Nothing is to prevent the state from replacing any Motel 6 with a Ritz-Carlton, any home with a shopping mall, or any farm with a factory."

    The swing vote was Reagan appointee Justice Anthony Kennedy.

    If the average American lose the power to protect their country, then we've lost our liberty. Only Republicans aren't concerned with liberty lost to corporations. And that makes both Republicans and Corporations dangerous.

    I know none of you people read any of the links. I read the very few links right wingers provide because I do have an open mind. But I know bullshit when I read it. That's why I disagree with the right wing. Not because I like to be disagreeable, but because their policies are destructive. And look at the links. They aren't "crazy left wing" links. The Christian Science Monitor? Not left wing.
    My opinion of most the USMB right wing is pathetic. And they enforce that opinion every day.

    This is the reason you get mocked. You're ignorant.
