“I only advocate taking it from those who've stolen it UNDER THE GUISE of working for it.”

“You mean by thise Smart People who've used their sneaky Smartness to make money?
While people like you suppress their Smartness (and quite well, I might add) and don't make money.?
What you've not considered is being Non Smart ,like virtue is it's own reward.”
The notion that Ron Paul wants to eliminate government altogether is shortsighted and foolish. With this very statement, he IS attacking corruption, fraud and bribery. FEMA is at best, a waste, and at worst, a diversion.”
“For all the good FEMA has (not) done, I gotta agree. After Katrina, self-sufficiency should be underlined 3 times! Plus, there are those rumored internment camps. What is FEMA's true purpose, anyway? I'm not asking about their mission statement. Duh. I hope they'll let Ron take the stage for some debate this season.”

“No, there aren't those rumored internment camps.”

“"Plus, there are those rumored internment camps."
If you are serious, then you must seek therapy. Paranoia is a sad, ugly thing.”
“I wholeheartedly agree that campaign finance needs reforming ASAP, but just because they're not doing their duty doesn't mean I shouldn't do mine. Besides, our Oregon reps are, by and large, pretty decent. Sorry you don't have the same experience ... but if you voted in the right guys, you might stand a chance.”
“The idea, not to mention your duty as a patriotic citizen, is to VOTE out the corruptness. Duh!”

“You can't vote out corruption. The corruption is intrinsic to the system of campaign finance. Whoever gets your vote will be corrupted by the river of money coming out of Wall Street. Obama is exhibit A. Why do people not see this?”

“You can't vote out corruptness when that is how congress works. Congress does not listen to the informed vote, they listen to the lobbyist vote. Look at their record. Am I wrong?”
“"Poll after poll shows what Americans demand, and they are ignored by these politicians who only care about their re-election ..."
I must be really naive, cuz I can't wrap my head around how they keep getting re-elected when they so plainly ignore the voter's demands. Even with the corp. contributions, don't they still need the votes? Are the elections rigged or what?
