Time and time again, I have said that Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh really and truly do not care about our nation. And, time and time again, they prove it – as Rush has by being against the bill H.R. 5175 – Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections.
I cannot understand how Limbaugh could come out against this bill, which passed the House 219 to 209 with 8 not voting.
Our Supreme Court lost its collective mind not long ago and declared that Corporations had the same rights as individuals. This meant that the Campaign reform laws that were passed were essentially knocked down. How could anyone think for one moment that a Corporation should have the same rights as an individual in this country?
Here’s the deal: Lawmakers should have to tell us under whose bed their boots are. We should have the right to know to whom they are grateful when they are propelled to public office. Maybe, this is isn’t what our founding fathers had in mind, but they couldn’t possibly conceive that we would one day be a country of over 300 million people. They couldn’t possibly conceive that a candidate for president would have to get his or her (they certainly couldn’t have conceived a woman president) message out to everyone and it would take a ridiculous amount of money to do so.
And, from where does that money come?
You, me, corporations, lobbyist groups, etc. etc.
Don’t we have a right to know? I believe we do.
Apparently, Rush Limbaugh doesn’t think so, neither does Paul Ryan – he was one of the 3 nay votes from Wisconsin – and neither does our other 2 Republican Representatives from Wisconsin.
You should think about that when you go to the polls this coming November. Think about who wants you to know what’s happening and who doesn’t.
God Bless America – she needs it!
