Keeping it local makes the most sense or at the least only donating via the candidate's own website and organization. How about candidates that "out" the greedy, bait and switchers supposedly on our side. To fight corruption in gov't, the system and the process...begin with your own "house" and gain a lot of credibility. But don't leave out the other side...which I imagine is as bad if not a lot worse. People are increasingly disgusted by corruption and billions of dollars per election which is, if not directly corrupt, certainly fertile ground to grow massive corruption. Including our own corruptocrats (h/t Malkin) in any attack on all of them will perplex the MSM...how to cover the GOP hitting the GOP money-muggers without also hitting the Dem money muggers they also attack. It will make them crazy. Not least because supposedly they are opposed to unending dollars for candidates.
James55 andRich L. both make valid points. The problem isn't a lack of handouts or of money. It's the breakdown of family and morality. Neither of those things will change with more money. It was a Republican president who freed the slaves, another who first offered civil rights legislation--which was killed by a Democrat Congress. It was three Republicans who began the NAACP to give a platform from which to fight against the racist, Democrat Jim Crow laws. But Johnson, who was the deciding vote to kill civil rights in the Senate then, as president, took credit for it and the GOP let him and the Democrats take the credit. Johnson said it would keep the N-word as Democrat voters forever. So, they were "in the bag"...but now years later, they seem to getting out of the "bag". Good for them. I'm just sorry it took them so much pain and loss to realize the the destructiveness of gov't dependency.
"Do as I say, not as I do", the byword of every tyrant and tyrant wannabe. Hypocrisy is one of its most visible byproducts.
Crony capitalism is a good way to kill lots of things, first and foremost, individual freedom. Seems Colts in anyone's possession may become collector's items sooner rather than later. Shame a company with such a consistently superior product has also consistently had such poor business sense. I'm sure they'll "get" this..."Fortunes of war, boys and girls...fortunes of war" (or lack thereof).
Get ready for this to increase and escalate. Progressive political correctness has been using schools--for decades--to indoctrinate. The Holocaust isn't covered, in fact---it didn't happen, apparently. And in a recent report, Hitler didn't exist either or at least wasn't enough of a factor in WWII that he is even mentioned. paraphrasing...those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it. That's the new normal, people. Repeating all the worst parts of history.

Howya doin', Troll? BTW--my 7 year old niece throws a ball far stronger, straighter and more accurately than your Feckless Leader. The Leftist progressive Kool Aid drinkers (like yourself, Doctor B.S.) have been praised and rewarded for pooping and pissing all over everybody and everything. When you're up to your eyeballs in your own feces---how will you blame that on Republicans who control just 1/2 of 1/3 of the government? (Especially since half of the ones there are progressives, too, and agree with what's happening.) Don't bother answering. You'll lie as usual, make it up as you go along, just as your Feckless Leader does.

Sarah Palin pegged him from the start as nothing but a community organizer. It's the only "work" he's ever done...cause trouble, rabble rouse. He's held positions but stirring up feces is all he's ever accomplished. The longer he stays in the top gov't housing facility, the angrier he gets. He's always gotten his way, been handed everything, earned nothing for himself. Now he's being blocked and like a spoiled brat, he throws a fit then smugly "doubles down" and does the same thing and more. Like a spoiled brat...one who needs his backside heated up. He whines and complains fit to beat the band, our Community Organizer in Chief. Perhaps we should give him a different title: the Whiner in Chief.

I define "stupid" as willful ignorance. Not knowing can be remedied. Not WANTING to know...well, you can't fix stupid. Some progressives do know but they don't want to know. The lie suits better. But the rank and file progressives, the "uninformed voters", don't know and don't want to know. They have long since acquired the bad habit of stupidity and now revel in it. Their elite "rulers", the "priests" of the religion of Statism praise them and reward them for their stupidity. Like praising a puppy for chewing up the furniture and messing on the floor. They will not cease their choice of stupidity until they cease being rewarded for it...or maybe when they find themselves neck deep in their own feces.
PBS/NPR may have a decent and informative program on from time to time though I wouldn't know. I haven't watched it on TV or listened to it on the radio for many years. Not since I realized they were lying to me, sometimes directly and the rest of the time by omission of pertinent truth. Fair enough though. Free speech includes the freedom to lie like a dog. What I resent deeply is taxpayer dollars propping up this propaganda outlet.
