Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Politics

The Party of Big Business

RealClearPolitics links to a video of a speech by Democratic Congressman, Hank Johnson saying that if the government does not limit campaign contributions, more Republicans will be elected.  Why, because "Republicans favor big busines and big business favors Republicans."  It amusing that his two examples, BP and Goldman Sachs, were both big Obama donors.

One good thing about the web, particularly now that video links are so easy, is that it makes it easier for us to see just how unimpressive so many of our elected officials, of both parties, are.  An argument for having them responsible for fewer things, if you ask me.
