"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

Earmarks, Get Your Earmarks Here!

A lobby group (PMA Group), which has ties to Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) is accused of illegal campaign contributions. CQ Politics published a list of the names of our elected officials involved in PMA Group dealings. (Here).

This is not the list you want your name to pop up on. Unfortunately for Colorado, we have 2 Democrats (Mark Udall and Ed Perlmutter) and 1 Republican (Doug Lamborn) here. This is just not the type of politics we need in America. It's time for term limits, it's time to stop the vote-buying schemes, and the underhanded, shady dealings that cost taxpayers money. I'm not opposed to a politician accepting funds, but you should owe no one anything but love and kindness (to paraphrase). If I run for office, you can give me all the money you want, but don't expect a dime back in any legislation passed in the Congress! You should know where I stand on the issues (tax cuts, traditional family values, pro-life, ending government intrusion into private lives), and donate or not donate accordingly. That's it.

Here's the story. Sphere: Related Content

I believe in the 1st Amendment. Say whatever you want. If you're a moron, I may point that out...if I have time. :P
