Time for publicly funded elections

March 17, 2017

To the editor: Let me explain “trickle-down theory” MY way. If you give tax breaks to the rich they will spend the money on: mansions (good), vacation homes (good), gardeners, servants, etc....

Everywhere you lo ok it is horrible news about our new President and the GOP. Even (Fixed)Fox News is looking like part of a cover up.

Latest poll: 57% Americans favor Obamacare 30% Americans favor TrumpCare

FBI Director Comey confirmed the bureau is investigating possible links and coordination between Russia and associates of President Donald Trump as part of a broader probe of Russian interference in our election - THERE MUST AT LEST BE SMOKE! . He contradicted the tweets from Trump that declared the Republican candidate's phones had been ordered tapped by President Barack Obama. "I have no confirmation, nor does Justice, that supports those tweets" Comey said. He also disputed allegations that British intelligence services were involved in the wiretapping.

Trump tweeted before the hearing began, accusing Democrats of making up allegations about his campaign associates' contact with Russia during the election. “Congress and the FBI should be going after media leaks and maybe even Hillary Clinton” - PRETEEN MENTALITY ATTEMPTED TO REDIRECT HIS RED HANDED CONFRONTATION.

Defenders???

“About 1,500 workers at three Indiana factories are facing layoffs despite hopes that President Donald Trump would convince the companies to reverse plans for moving production to Mexico. United Technologies confirmed Friday that the first wave of about 50 layoffs happened last week at its electronics plant that had about 700 workers in Huntington. The plant in the northeastern Indiana city is slated for closure. Steps are also being taken toward about 550 job cuts anticipated at a Carrier Corp. factory in Indianapolis, where Trump's intervention last fall curbed job losses but didn't halt them altogether. Layoffs could start within a month at a 350-worker Rexnord industrial bearings factory in Indianapolis, according to United Steelworkers Local 1999 President Chuck Jones, who represents workers at the Carrier and Rexnord plants.”

Representatives are purchased, not elected.

Every heard this expression from Conservatives?

“Given the power the left will vote themselves the right to others money”

In a “Republic” with unlimited money to buy Legislators, the Executive and the Judiciary and the media, the reverse is proving the wisdom in that belief. The Republicans are buying the right to further enslave the working class by taxing them more and taking their equity to pay themselves huge tax breaks.

Watch this: Trump’s one tax return demonstrates it perfectly. He has expressed his desire to end the “ALTERNATIVE MINIMUM TAX”(AMT).

Without it he would have only paid taxes at a 3% rate. What did you pay? Ending AMT would save him 33.5 mil (how much in other years) that the rest of us would have to make up.

WHY must we elect "Representatives" ? ?

We are all right here/there via instant communications -- Conditions are NOT even REMOTELY similar to what they were when the nation was founded.

"Representatives" today primarily represent gaping, wide-open and inviting doorways for illicit influences to operate against the interests of most of us.

We therefore desperately need STRUCTURAL changes in our political system ! !
