    There will not be the votes in Congress for any good sort of campaign finance reform unless more people get more interested in politics and more committed to voting.
    If Republicans start talking about 'campaign finance reform' look out. Already in the Houston area there are right-wing activists looking at the Texas Ethics Commision Reports of liberal groups and trying to find violations.

          The economics and political tactics ones, for choice.

          Our work getting nose dogs for the Marines contributed to that argument. My nephew's unit is using two of them now to identify heroin labs.

            then that is supposed to make it OK about your smart ass "bitchin'" remark?  Don't you ever talk to me that way again.  Better yet- don't ever reply to my comments.

              "There will not be the votes in Congress for any good sort of campaign finance reform unless more people get more interested in politics and more committed to voting."

              That's condensed to "That is the key. Quityerbitchin' and Vote !!"

              The word "quityerbitchin" is common New York slang. A cousin to "fergitaboutit."

              P.S. cut a little slack for your allies....

      Hell, i'm well aware of the problem. Every Republican I have ever talked to agree that we need to change this!  This is something that goes across party lines. Fuck Congress.  We are on our own on this deal, but it is imperative that it must be changed before any regular person stands a chance in this country. Campaign and lobby corruption is the number one big elephant in the room that everyone ignores.
