Great day in America when corporations are allowed to contribute to candidates and call it "free speech" but won't let employees do the same thing.

i've always wondered... if the MSM is so in bed with the liberal agenda then how the heck did george bush win in 2000 and 2004, and the republicans win the house this year?

Mostly because the MSM is owned by very large and powerful corporations who want their own special interest.

George W Bush won narrowly, despite the media's efforts.

The republicans also won this latest election

You well may be right. I dont know. I am no fan of the republican party, either.

I think the nation is in real trouble and on the verge of a horrendous decline, or continuation of the one we have been on under a republican and a democrat in the presidency and a democratically controlled congress. We will see if turning one house over to a different group might help. I, too, am QUITE skeptical.

Sonny...who is not now, and never has been, a republican.

You are far smarter than I am.

All I know is that what we have in place in DC is not working.

What I believe is that there is not much difference in politicians. I believe the puppet masters behind the politicians are in charge and have used the power of democrat control in both houses and the White House to

Sonny, I definitely don't claim to be smarter.
