Actually I don't really agree

People should be allowed to do whatever the heck they want to with their own money as long as they don't violate the rights of others. That is called liberty, the fundemental idea of the American way of life.

Ever hear the phrase, "our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor"?

On a more practical note, you really can't stop rich people from spending as much as they want to back a candidate.

Wink

Actually, people are not allowed to do whatever they want with their money. That's been shown time and again. And as we are seeing of late, some of the absolutes that our founders believed in are not so difficult to compromise.

We may not be able to stop them, but we can try to slow them down a bit.

It must be addressed.

to use their money as the desire. Anything else is NOT liberty.

Sorry.

We've already compromised this far to much.

Without being equal in the eyes of our representatives

In reply to: Liberty dictates that people are free...

our liberties are constantly at risk from the highest bidder.

That is an untenable situation and should be avoided.

When were we ever equal in teh yesuys of our representative

In reply to: Without being equal in the eyes of our representatives

Never. Not in 239 years! It's not a realistic proposition.

Anyway we're at an impasse. If you're not with me you're against me.

on it just because it's difficult.

In any case, our liberty has not been complete in those 239 years, either.

True. I want more liberty, not less.

I don't oppose your idea because it's difficult; I oppose it because it's wrong.

(NT) (NT) It seems we just disagree on this issue, Ed.
