    Thumbs up

    Do you think if I went to ACORN and asked if I could vote for Coakley in Ma it would happen?
    I could then do like Obama and lie and not vote for her and vote for Brown...May be a way to get Brown elected.kind of CROOKED but it would work maybe...I like the idea of a 41st vote against the health care bill.

    Democratic polls note that the race is too close to call with Republicans outspending Democrats by a substantial margin. Right now, a lot of companies are viewing the Massachusetts election as the easiest place to defeat health insurance reform.

    Sounds good. I hope they succeed in that defeat.

    It will represent a great day in the United States. A clear message will be sent to the politicians telling them to stop looting the treasury.

    I believe, and this is an opinion, that if the Republicans pull off a victory in MA it would be a bigger upset than the USA beating Russia in hockey.

    And a GIANT wakeup call for a lot of Senators and Congressman that don't want to lose their jobs because of ideology!!

    Just an opinion.
    Maybe a hope as well.

    We always hear from the media in these situations "it is a referendum vote" trying to place more on the particular election than it needs. We saw that in several of the mid-term races.

    Not trying to over state it but, I think this would really be a referendum if Brown wins.

    Yesterday alone, Brown raised over $1.3 MILLION in an online fundraising campaign.

    Brown support has be steadily increasing from being down double digits just a few weeks ago. He has some substantial momentum. This one is shaping up to be much closer than most anyone ever imagined.
    this is exactly why nothing is going to change! $1.3 million is a LIFETIME of paychecks for most families. RAISED IN 1 DAY! politicians have no connection to the mainstream wage earner. why should they? free health care for life, a great pension, paid travel expenses, $1,000 per plate fundraising dinners, etc. they are more than happy to let us eat cake!

    how much money do you think these people are investing in their campaigns? whoever wins owes favors to too many individuals, special interest groups and corporations to pay back in 1 term, so the cycle gets repeated again and again and again......regardless of party affiliation.-Paul

    Absolutely correct Paul.

    And to top it off, the Supreme Court is about to make a ruling that will open the floodgates, allowing business to open their wallets and give unlimited funds to politicians.

    Realizing that both parties are corrupt...

    I have no problem with who gives money to politicians. I have no problem with how much money anyone gives to a politician. I believe lobbyist provide a valuable service to those that they represent and both political parties (think NRA and DU).

    I have a problem with transparency. Where did the money come from? I have a problem with earmarks. How are you, as a politician, looting the treasury? I have a problem with using legislation to buy votes (tailoring bribes or legislation so only one specific state qualifies for that money).

    I believe that, coupled with the freedom that the supreme court is about to grant, politicians should create a high level of transparency. Just tell us where the money comes from.

    We can make our own decisions on if we believe that a politician is being bought, is dis-honest or is just accepting money from their constituency with no strings attached.

    Everything is about transparency. Follow the money…
