    Jesus H. Christ. What the hell is wrong with this crazyness? Your diary is awesome. It reads almost like a segment from the Rachel Maddow show with how well you connect the money and ties of these people. This just proves what length these individuals are willing to go to strip us of our rights throughout the country. Thankfully, the demographics are going against them as times move on, but that still doesn't change all of these unethical issues that you highlight through this diary.

      ... to be confronted and dealt with, not with vague promises of "someday after we do the important stuff first,"  but now.  

      I saw some ugly, ugly stuff first hand here in my district during the last election.

      There are many ways to go after the argument. This is one approach that even the conservatives can understand, and it makes some of them very uncomfortable. It's all sort of a game for a lot of the wealthier Republicans, to see what sort of shell games they can do with donations to non profits, so they can avoid paying taxes.  Remember, when they do that, it means that they are not only depriving others of their civil rights, but they are depriving the Treasury of revenue, increasing the deficit, and making others take up their slack.  I have a problem with politicians who make a fetish out of their anti tax stances to where it is actively hurting people, and then this is the type of activity they use to get themselves elected.
