    so do most all other orgs , they are most usually lobbyists for their causes and donate a lot of money to politicians.

    I stopped after a nasty bout of the flu. Also was influenced by my two young kids who detested the smell of tobacco. The first few days and weeks were tough, then it gradually got easier. I managed it all through willpower, my kids smiles and support and nothing else.

    All orgs and corps use lobbyists.
    Lobbyists are the cancer of politics.

    If you want to try and have fair government you must start with eliminating Lobbyists and setting Term limits.
    Just those two things would create more of a level playing field for all of us.

    Money would still find its way into the pockets of politicians but it would be illegal and when they got caught they would be sent off to live in a cell with a guy name Bubba and become his panocha :xf.wink:

    Not much longer before I can get out of this double wide mobile home and go live again, this two week quarantine hasn’t been so bad, but I am ready to go outside and breath fresh air again. My 1st test has come back negative for Covid, I have to take another next Monday morning , I know it is negative though, just have to go through the motions

    I agree with you on that , but no need to shut down orgs now , until such law is passed and they are found to be guilty of violations , let them continue on IMO

    but I do agree with you on term limits and no funding the politicians for favors

    @lennco Just imagine the amount of money paid out by the LGBTQ to Obummer so they could get what they wanted and even the extra love from the Obummers by having the rainbow lighting the whitehouse at night.

    😂😂😂, it’s a look and don’t touch situation , I was in South Miami Beach last in 2016 on business, I hardly saw anyone over 30 years old, I felt like a grandpa😂, but, I met a Cuban feller and his Cuban wife in the heated swimming pool, we talked a long while and are still friends to this day, I decided to go to the beach, I was sitting there chilling and women in thong things with no tops began walking by just casually as they could be. I was like Ooooo shit, I thought I had entered a nude beach, but I hadn’t lol

    all these countries playing all this bullshit have an abundance of fireworks to use when they protest , fireworks come from Shenzhen China for the most part , what a coincidence , Portland is fully stocked with them.

    Fox news covering Pres. Trump. Looks like someone painted him with gold metal flake.

    one has to wonder why Soros isn’t piling them full of cash but then Soros isn’t really down with DNC , Soros is all about that new reformed US government though.

    This is where all my left leaning friends get derailed. I agree lobbyists are trouble. Term limits sound good too, but the result would probably be more power in the hand of the unelected bureaucrats and deep state actors who really run things anyway.

    Banning lobbyists? If you have a house full of cockroaches, it doesn't matter how much poison you use, they keep coming back until you clean the house. It's the situation that attracts lobbyists, and always will. And that situation is the government having too much power over everybody's lives, money and decisions. If you have money and want to influence things in your favor, which is easier: persuading the public or paying off a couple of politicians?

    A better solution is to cut government way down to levels that they serve the people rather than rule over them with fear and threats of force. If a politician has less influence and power, then they have less to sell to lobbyists. It amazes me that people have been convinced that the government is there to help them, and that any problem can be solved by more laws, less freedom and more power in their masters' hands.

    Soros spends smart money. Buying city / state attorney general elections. They have a lot of power and are almost impossible to remove.

    They choose who gets prosecuted.. let the criminals go, charge the home owner defending himself with a gun, investigate the NRA, etc. ,etc.

    😂😂😂, I was watching a channel called newsy on cable, these people were saying if Biden loses the election there is going to be an altercation in the streets of America.

    Now, if Biden loses, people will take to the streets and start burning up shit and painting stuff I am pretty sure.

    If Trump loses, similar but perhaps a bit different.

    I like how they used the word “Altercation” though, prim and proper etiquette 😂

    how many of you believe no matter the winner there is going to be civil unrest ???

    no one will
    Prolly answer because when I post these polls in this thread no one ever comments 😝

    I don't see Conservatives taking on the streets and burning up stuff, most are busy having real jobs and real families to take care of, and sadly the Left counts on this when devising their post election plans. Just recently they had this tabletop war-game in the style of Event 201, mr-x posted about it the other day, Pedosta played Biden I think they have something in common lol. In none of their 4 scenarios they've rehearsed did they expect any strong or violent reaction from Trump supporters, but they did see "Democratic anger grow" in case of Trump electoral college victory.

    So as for your poll, maybe not?

    Yep, you covered the poll question, Thanks!! The only reason i disagree with you on Conservatives actions is because there will come a point when they have to start defending themselves and Conservatives are also super pissed about all the events of tearing up cities and states and making threats. but they wont burn up stuff and paint graffiti, they will act like adults and do it the way it should be done.

    I've already given my opinion previously. I believe the Lefties will go totally apeshit when Trump wins again. Conservatives are just too civilized to go out burning, looting and acting like savages!

    Conservatives are generally good losers, unless of course there is a lot of cheating, by the Dems, which I expect there to be, but the Liberal Media, who's job is to investigate all sides, will cover up any Liberal wrong doings... just like they've been doing for some time now, except they're getting worst all the time.

    Since virtually all violence, looting, burning, chaos and incitement is being created by leftist Antifa, BLM, other left wing radicals, Hollywood and the Liberal Media, it's really easy to predict what will happen when Trump wins... and it will be even worse than what we've seen in the last 2 months.... They will go...

    When Trump wins in November and you will be away for a while, I'll buy you a bottle or two of José el Tigre for you to drown your sorrows away. I wonder if it has a worm inside?
