So get off of your behinds people. Romney is NOT the solution. We should not cut off our nose to spite our face.

I wonder why people link "news" sources that one can easily see a extremely partisan just by reading the website's banner. Surely only a moron would cite such a source as fact.

That was done in 2008 to spite W. and those that so many thought weren't behind Obama, but are.

You know what's funny? Salt of the earth Suffolk county loathes these arrogant creeps. We grew up with gold coast and old money around the corner from poor neighborhoods and there was always mutual respect & regard for one another. The Kochs are brats in grown mens bodies who keep trying to chase around the Kennedy footsteps as if it were for sale. Money can't buy class or substitute for an appalling lack of character. Nouveau riche never will get over themselves, even in it's second generation.

You can't tell a difference between a campaign where ideas are being promoted and a campaign where blatant lies are being peddled? That's where Texas education is at, eh? No wonder Bush inc. owns your state.

George Soros Donates to Pro-Obama Groups, Super PACs for 2012 Election
Aren't you a genius! So I guess this accusation means what when Obama, dems, libs, and indies voiced loudly against superpacs and citizens united? They'd prefer big money not be involved, but when they're forced by law to play by your terms, you blame them for the terms you endorsed? What planet do you live on where nothing you do is your fault?

The statement republicans are making about themselves is crystal clear. They're prostitutes. They have no ideas, they're empty suits, the only reason they bother running for office is to cash out America to the highest bidder, the only way they know how to make a buck is dragging everyone else down, and there is no such thing as a conservative in this country anymore. Only prostitutes.

That doesn't sound like buying an election. If that were the case, that would suggest that Americans as a whole didn't take the time to educate themselves
The average man is being bombarded with a steady stream of bullsh*t from the moment they wake up until they moment they go to sleep. People own information, and they own the ability to lie louder than anyone else making sure nobody knows the truth. The disinformation machine known as FOX news isn't evidence enough for you? Here's the next layer of disinformation machines-- Koch bros are trying to infiltrate college curricula to decide what fact and fiction are in libraries. And the next layer- the billionaire bought judges deciding it's legal to lie.

Inform yourself how? Rely on Russian news feed? Or is the latest version of CISPA going to censor that out?

By finding a non-partisan news feed. Yes, Fox is a terrible network. Just as terrible as MSNBC and whatever network 'The Young Turks' is on. Democracy can only work with an informed and passionate populace: Read non-partisan history, turn on the BBC.

The current news situation in your country is not the fault of the billionaires, but lies squarely with the people.

The battle between who/what/where/when/why/how and editorializing infotainment has already been fought. The actual reporters lost to the talking heads. People wanted to see, "When Buildings Collapse" rather than Woodward and Bernstein. They wanted to be entertained and enraged rather than informed.

People are starting to see the consequences of turning on Glenn Beck and Cenk Uygur and praises them, then villifies real journalists when they print something that disagrees with their partisan politics.
