The only corruption that exists is wealthy individuals like the Koch brothers illegally sticking the taxpayers with the tab for their tax-exempt political operations.

I presume you also mean to include ridiculously wealthy left leaning politicians and political advocates as well?

Trollboy Camelot didn't even read the OP, but saw who started the thread, and thus felt that another of his OT posts was warranted to try and deflect the particulars.

I don't understand, but isn't throwing a subsidy to anyone who asks the charitably liberal thing to do? Or is it only wrong when someone on the RW plays along in this game with the LW?
