2. I wish someone would break down the dirty outsiders messing with State/local elections..

It's really bad but not much of a spotlight is shown inside the individual States.

Rotten fruit.

3. Their only hope is to steal and suppress votes. They will try harder next time.

The Rethuglicans will be back with even more clever ways to steal or suppress the vote.

4. Not anymore - they are imploding

They're all done and coming apart. Cheating may work if you're close and need a little boost. They are soooo far back now that a even stealing suppressing won't help them and they realize it now.

2016 will be a cake walk for HRC.

14. I don't think so. The Repugs have North Carolina in a stranglehold, and a lot of other states too.

The party has had a setback on the national level, but they have more than made up for it on the state level. State level is where votes are counted.

16. You said it yourself


Alaska went red on the state level to. But it that won't slow or hinder HRC. The gop needs gain much more than just NC. In 2016 what blue state could possibly go red (home state exemption). NONE.

Still stand my my prediction for a HRC landslide; both terms. Maybe in twelve years the gop will be competitive again on the national level. I think the Libertarians will be coming on strong by then.

7. They don't care any more than a plant cares how much sunlight it receives.

They are not in this due to some philosophical convictions. They're in it because they can't find anything else to do with their lives.

8. 38 million per elected politician ain't bad

 

38 million isn't a lot of money. Even at the County level, 38 million doesn't buy you a whole lot.


That is well worth the cost of doing business. A corporation can make 38 million in one day with the right politician in place.

9. I will promise not to run for a mere 30 million

 

See how much money it would save them to do it that way?

Not promising how I'd use that money, though.

10. Guys that stiffed the Mob a measly grand used to get disappeared.

Rove might as well have taken the money and burned it, for all the good it did.

I wonder if a vindictive billionaire who thinks he's above the law will feel about Rove pissing his hundred million dollar contribution away like that.
