    No, your mainstream centrist neoliberals want to shape the present, and in so doing, it is not always for the better.

    1. What has this got to do with what I said????

    2. As I have said over and over again (that means ad infinitum), I am against all $$$$ being involved in the election process.

    Everything, it has everything to do with what you just said.

    OK. If you say so. I guess I am not getting the "dark money" reference.

    Maybe start at why $$$$ in politics is an issue and work from there. It's not a catchphrase.

    Which I've clearly stated numerous times (that means ad infinitum) that I am against. What are you missing???


    This is what my post said………

    Everyone is represented. Problem is that many people are choosing the wrong representatives. How do you explain Wacky Maxine being elected 15 times??? But her district is "represented."

    This was your response………

    What is the issue you have with dark money again?

    I see no connection to my post and your response.

    New Sluggo quirk: mention ad infinitum in as many posts as possible.

    Wait Sluggo doesn't think "dark money" means money that goes to candidates who happen to look like Maxine Waters. Does he?

    Probably none of them would come out clearly in favor if it……they would all tap dance around the issue. Or at best say it has to be acceptable because their opposite side opponent is taker it in.

    It all needs to go away.

    Why? How does it affect our system in a negative way?

    You're kidding right!!!!

    This is the definition of "dark money." Simple google lookup.

    What does dark money mean?
    In the politics of the United States, dark money refers to political spending by nonprofit organizations — for example, 501(c)(4) (social welfare) 501(c)(5) (unions) and 501(c)(6) (trade association) groups — that are not required to disclose their donors.

    Dark money is buying influence. I think that is fairly clear.

    They are also in all likelihood contributing to candidates that they cannot vote for. I don't like this at all.

    Also a good portion of the members of all these groups may not want their $$$$ going to Biden/Trump.

    And they generally support and influence incumbents looking to hold onto their power. This pretty well assures that their interests are protected. Now, how would we relate this to someone like Maxine Waters, who you feel doesn't meaningfully represent her district? This isn't rocket science.
