    To "LDS Liberal" don't worry, eventually Obama will lose and the Gadiantons will leave the White House.


    You've got that backwards. the Gadiantons will ener the White House if Obama loses.

    Romney is one of the worst Gadiantons of them all, given the way the entities acquired by Bain were gutted, jobs were lost and outsourced overseas, and the people working for them were pillaged. That's still happening today.

    Sensata -- a company owned by Bain in which Romney has a multi-million-dollar investment, just shut down a profitable plant in Freeport, Illinois, and sent the whole operation to China. The Sensata workers tried to get a meeting with Romney to try to persuade him to intervene, but he didn't even have the courtesy or decency to meet with them (nor did he try to withdraw his Sensata investment monies). And this happened at a time when he was claiming he would work to bring the outsourced jobs back to the United States. A Gadianton (and a hypocrite) of the worst kind is Mitt Romney.

    The Supreme Court with justices appointed by this administration have shown they have the ability to impact on elections, even they are not to campaign, as they are to be the real independent campaigning.

    They figured out that even though they cannot actively campaign, even for the person who appointed them to that position, they could impact voting in the worst case possible with this decision.

    They have granted the Lords and Barons, companies, organizations and corporations with the alliance of rich people to throw the votes to a person that has the most money. This has turned out to be the Department of Commerce and Department of Labor type of election showing. Who has the most money, management or the unions.

    The courts have put into power people that are not accountable to a candidate. The candidate may not even want the PACs help but the PAC can and will advertise no matter what.

    This election has turned on the faucet. Next time will the dam hold the water back or will there be a breach in the dike?

    Will we have to make repairs? If Congress wanted to change the election laws they will need to work, together.
