    Now with new and improved Citizens United steroids.

    We really need to stop this thing. Or as Bill McKibben so eloquently stated regarding climate chaos - It's "game over"

    If liberals really "hated America" - We'd vote Republican

    •  iirc - Bush and Gore took matching (0+ / 0-)

      funds for the general election.  The RNC raised and spent more for GWB than the DNC did for Gore, but outside groups spent more for Gore.  The biggest difference in that election was during the primary season.  By taking matching funds, Gore's campaign had to go dark as soon as he secured the votes for the nomination and until the convention.  Team Bush campaigned continuously.
