These same people have been calling Perry a crony capitalist because he took money but all candidates need money. So the least amount of money you have may make you sound more virtuous, but it is not going to win many elections.
Obama is closely related to Black Liberation theology theologian Rev Jeremiah Wright, an unrepentent 60’s revolutionary Bill Ayers, Van Jones and a number of people who would destroy america...so how bout i stick with Koch brothers and obama just stick it
One of many versions, yes... LOL
Oh Thank GOD!! I thought you had fallen off the turnip truck!!!
AFP, the advocacy group founded with support from billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, which lobbies for lower taxes and less government regulation and spending.
....these are very dangerous ideas..../s
No, I’m trying to make a point. Thanks.
Lighten up cupcake, if there’s one thing I’m fairly certain of it’s Cain’s honesty. I wouldn’t say he’s been “bought out”, I’d rather say the Koch brothers agree with his principles and goals enough to help fund his campaign. I see nothing wrong with that. Of course if hate the Koch brothers because you’re a left wing zealot then you might.
Who told you this?
I've never seen this posted on FR.
Have you been trolling DU?
Are you loggeed in?
You are absolutely correct, whomever gets the nomination, is going to need lots of money to first get the nomination and then to defeat Obama.
Well, that may sound good but it isn't going to win many elections. Anyone who hopes to win an election needs money. I do not think Cain is corrupt nor do I think Perry is corrupt.
Far too many believe that if a candidate accepts money from someone or a group it acts like a bribe and that is not necessarily the case. In more cases individuals, or groups give to candidates who are like minded.
I am thrilled we have the Koch Bros. on our side.
Do you know anything about AFP? Is stands for Americans for Prosperity and is dedicated to keeping socialists and crony capitalists from undermining the free enterprise system. Click on the link to go to their website and educate yourself. It is exactly the type of educational program we need in this country.
Notice the enemedia always calls them AFP because, in their demented minds, it somehow sounds more sinister.
Have you ever heard them refer to OSI ran by George Soros? If you do, they always make sure the reader knows it means Open Society Institute because, after all, who could possibly oppose an open society.
I am in agreement with you. Please follow my posts.
Over and over??
It should be easy for you to cite a few examples, with links, where people have told you that "Perry is bad because he has money."
I've never seen such sentiments anywhere, and would have to read any links you post to find out who would make such a stupid comment.
If you've been reading any of these threads you've had to have seen it.
The truth is candidates need funds to run a campaign and Cain had better hope he gets lots of it.
Crony capitalism is not "having money," so its not the same charge. Crony capitalism means that you take money from private interests to influence your decisions on public policy. People have charged Perry with that, based on some of some of his controversial decisions and the fact that those decisions benefitted people who had given him significant amounts of money.
It's not possible to charge Cain with this as he's not made public policy.
But nobody has said Perry is bad simply because he has money. That a nonsense charge that you simply made up.
Sounds like a check in the ‘positive’ column for Cain.
