Oh, you want security? Pay us UP FRONT and we’ll do it.
easy to understand, he can piss all over california, and they will still give all their electorial votes to him.
what does he have to do? if he payed it would only cost him money.
people still supported stalin while he was killing their neighbors.
“It would be interesting if a town told the Obama campaign that it needed to cough up the estimated cost in advance,”
Yes, but then you’d have to worry about the dead beat’s check bouncing.
