    • jdub2788: They are both puppets to the rich.

    • Mercy Jimenez: Yep, jdub, and you can add most of Congress to the "both" column.

    • Bildar: jdub: Then why do you want to see the rich have more power, which would come from having yet more money?
      10/3/12
    • Bildar: I think you see the implicit dangers of a minority (the rich) having an undue amount of political power.

    • Perkins Cove: Super Pacs = China's USA vote. Or should we include the rest of the world in SuperPacs? Thoughts?

    • Perkins Cove: Bildar, yes I do see that. And it seems to be getting worse with each election cycle

    • jdub2788: bildar - not sure what you mean? i want the rich to have more power? how did you come up with that conclusion?

    • Bildar: Jdub: You said in your first post "they are both puppets of the rich". Why are they puppets? Because they have money.

    • jdub2788: considering I'm voting for gary johnson or writing in ron paul, does that change your perception?

    • Bildar: That money can be used for campaign contributions, Super Pacs, etc.

    • Bildar: Looking back in history, I can only find disastrous results when the power of the wealthy became extreme.

    • Bildar: Rialto: I don't that other countries represent this country, and are not participating for our benefit, only theirs. This needs to stop.
      10/3/12
    • Perkins Cove: Bildar, "This needs to stop". Agreed!
      10/3/12
    • Bildar: jdub: Ron Paul is fairly free of monied influence, but still has policies that would provide the wealthy with more money.

    • Perkins Cove: I think our only hope is a third party, which will force the left and right to the center...where the 99% are.
      10/3/12
    • Mercy Jimenez: Yes Rialto but complacency in that 99% debilitates the "muscle" needed for a viable third party.
      10/3/12
    • Bildar: Rialto: The force will come from the people. You will see, just be patient.
      10/3/12
    • Bildar: And that force will work with the existing parties.
      10/3/12
    • Perkins Cove: Well put Mercy. But a third party doesn't have to win in order to bring the others to the center. About time the "Independents" stood up...
      10/3/12
    • Perkins Cove: (con) ...for themselves. (I am one)
      10/3/12
    • Perkins Cove: And I agree with the "complacency". "We have met the enemy, and he is us". -Pogo
