“If this is allowed, it means any foreign power can send over a male to seduce a teenager and then supply the financial means to place that male in the office of President of the United States of America”
The financial means is not the end. You still have to be elected. The Framers did not set it up so as to be impossible for people with foreign loyalties couldn’t be president. If you can’t rely on the electorate to see through a scheme like that, then this whole self-government thing was a bad idea.
Abraham Lincoln said he was the last President that would ever be elected by the people. He knew that the money of powerful people would decide who wins on election day.
Don’t try to tell me you don’t see this from the local level on up.
Watching the media, I have become convinced that all the hype from both liberal and conservative media folks is just to keep us divided so it isn’t so obvious what is going on. We are duped by these talkers into thinking we are playing a part in the process when we are not. If they were true to their ideals it would be more like an 80/20 difference in the polls instead of always so close.
I see very little difference between a Romney or Obama presidency. I see GREAT difference if Ron Paul were President, but the media will not allow him to be heard by the people. He doesn’t have enough money to go around the media and make his message heard.
The rich and powerful buy up media to make sure they control the message. So called Conservative media like Fox, Glenn Beck, Limbaugh are not going as far as a real conservative media would go if they really want a real conservative to win. They are only going far enough to keep us divided and make sure their guy (one from either party) wins.
