Any politician who promises to give you something that is *paid for by other taxpayers* is corrupt, whether their donors give a million dollars or five dollars. In fact, given the value of the stuff being given away by liberal democrats, the ROI for the small donor is huge.

College students who give Al Franken $20 with the expectation he's going to "pass legislation" (as he says) to cut the interest on their college loan, or other deadbeats who get government-subsidized health...

Posted on 07/15/14 at 11:14 am in response to Poll: 68 percent of Republicans say Obama should be impeached

is that they're just approval ratings in disguise. If they really wanted an accurate measure of whether or not the people think President X should be impeached, the poll should include the probable charge(s) that caused such a poll to be considered.

We may not like a president's policies or his decision on this or that, or his leadership skills, but impeachment requires evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors.

Most people couldn't tell you what the two charges were that...

that the left-wing congress passed that made it illegal to arm the anti-communist forces in central America was dubious and anti-American and hardly rose to the level of 'high crimes and misdemeanors." If you'll remember, the democrat-controlled congress tried to burn Col. Oliver North at the stake for his role but the American people didn't buy the democrats' bogus reasoning and Col. North emerged a hero from those proceedings.

“One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws” - Dr. Martin Luther King

Laws intended to withhold national assets in the fight against communism are unjust laws in a free society.

It was republican congressional leaders who went to the White House and told Nixon he had to resign.

Compare that to the gang of democrats who stood on the steps of the capital, some of whom were attorneys, and defended Bill Clinton's perjury in his sexual harassment case and tacitly approved of his attempts at witness tampering with Miss Lewinski and others.

Like I said at the time, any decent man would have resigned.

If you people insist that republicans are all suburban, middleclass white people, then wouldn't it make sense for his ads to reflect that? Anything else would be a dishonest representation, would it not?

is that the only people who believe this are white liberals. You're a white liberal, most of the people on this site are white liberals, yet you all seem concerned that all republicans are white people.

Well guess what? I'm a non-white conservative and every non-white person I know votes republican. Wrap your white suburban brain around that.

should surrender their law degree.

Not surprisingly, the party of huge government's proposed amendment violates the existing 10th Amendment and actually gives more power to the federal government. It would be the only constitutional amendment to do that.

It's instructive by this fundamentally flawed text that they are essentially admitting that all existing campaign finance laws are unconstitutional and that these laws impose arbitrary limits on the speech that is the...

How do we know Al Franken actually is in favor of "political equality?"

Maybe he should divide his campaign fund equally amongst he and his opponents. That would be a fair test of his sincerity, would it not? Why should he benefit from the Hollywood money when his opponents do not?

When Obama chose to enforce portions of his health insurance law, ignore or change some parts and delay still others, it became apparent to congressional republicans and their supporters that Obama can't be trusted.

The only way to deal with a president who can't be trusted to enforce the laws he signs is to avoid "comprehensive" bills like the senate version of immigration reform and focus instead on several smaller pieces of legislation, each one predicated on the successful...
