Default Pray the Supreme Court strikes down campaign donation limits. - 10-07-2013, 12:30 AM

This is a gross violation of our right to free speech. All this tiptoeing we have to do through super PACs and giving money to individuals to give back to campaigns is simply wrong.

It is our God given right through the first amendment of the constitution to buy elections outright.

We make more than the poor do. We deserve a greater say in the election process. $2,600 won't even get me a meeting with my local representative these days.

I don't want to have to attend your stupid dinner fundraiser. I want to give all my money in one lump wheelbarrow sum when I want my representative to get me taxpayer money, an an attachment to a consulate for our missionaries or federal funding for my holding company's construction project.

I am sick and tired of all this sneaking around. It's not what Jesus would want. He wants us to be honest in our buying favors.

I want you all to pray really really hard the SCOTUS strikes down these sham laws we all know how to get around anyway.

Quote:
Washington (CNN) -- Shaun McCutcheon is an electrical engineer by trade, but grassroots politics may be his true passion.
The Alabama native has worked for years with his local Republican Party in Birmingham, and is chairman of Conservative Action Fund, a so-called "super PAC" that "promotes conservative Republicans' time-proven messages and effective solutions."
McCutcheon's success in business and a willingness to put his money into GOP coffers has put him at the center of a politically tricky Supreme Court fight over federal campaign donations.
Oral arguments in the case will be heard on Tuesday, a day after the court begins its new term. The government shutdown is not expected to affect the court's normal work schedule.
At issue is whether strict limits on direct campaign contributions by individuals -- in the Federal Election Campaign Act -- violate the First Amendment.
A ruling by spring could have an immediate impact on the congressional midterm elections next November, and be another blow to existing federal election laws.
The appeal from the 46-year-old owner of a Tuscaloosa-based company is supported in court by the Republican National Committee.
They object to a 1970s Watergate-era law restricting someone from giving no more than $48,600 to federal candidates, and $74,600 to political action committees, during a two-year election cycle -- for a maximum of $123,200.
McCutcheon says he has a constitutional right to donate more than that amount to as many office seekers as he wants, so long as no one candidate gets more than the $2,600 per election limit.
He supports those individual controls, but "what doesn't make any sense is that you can only give that amount of money to a few candidates, because somehow my giving money to (U.S. Rep.) Martha Roby of Alabama could corrupt (former Rep.) Allen West of Florida. That's just nutty, but that's what the powers-that-be want: to prevent folks who want to get involved from having the same ability to get involved and support candidates that big union PACs have."


Christians are superior because we possess an understanding that unbelievers lack. It is through the Power of Jesus only the converted mind is able to understand what is going on in the world; what the Communists are really up to; what Satan's intentions are. Most unbelievers do not even believe in Satan and cannot understand his tactics.

Amen! We earned that money. Why shouldn't we be able to donate it to whomever we want to? So $2,600 is all fine and dandy, but $2,700 and you're a criminal? All because you wanted to spend the money you earned to support a representative you believe in?

Just another example of liberal government force trying control how and where we spend our money. When you think about it, liberals generally get donations from many different poor individuals, while conservatives get donations from a few individual rich ones. Doesn't it give an unfair advantage to liberals to limit campaign donations? Why should it matter how many sources the money comes from? You can bet the majority of people donating to liberal campaigns do so with food stamp and welfare money. How ridiculous is that? You can donate as much as you want by scamming the American tax payer by faking a disability, but the money you earned as a hard working American needs restrictions and limitations? Instead of prohibiting hard working Americans from contributing they should prohibit anyone receiving any form of government welfare.

In most liberal states people on welfare make more money than people who work http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...imum-wage-job/. It just goes to show that most people still working in this economy must have a high moral standard and commitment. It's far easier to just go on the government doll and rake in tax payer money.
