    I'm not going to change how I post. You don't have to look at my posts. You can even block them if you like.

    That being said, personally, I would rather see it go much further and eliminate all public donations from individuals, corporations, organizations, etc. I think the donations lead to corruption within our government. I want to see more of an emphasis on the importance of votes rather than money and our politicians having to spend most of their time finding it for their campaigns.

    See, you CAN do it!

    Although we are on different ends of the political spectrum, I hope you will come out of your shell more often and post your own thoughts, in your own words more often.

    This was a good start!



    ...of course you might have TRIED to be a little less condescending, but then you're Pompous Pious SB.

    That's not simply condescension. That's a failed ruse for being caught trying to control the behavior of another person when the other person did nothing wrong. It's a control freak frantically trying to cover his tracks.

    How cute! <------simply condescending, sans any ulterior motive whatsoever.
