    As long as donations are up front and out in the open for all to see I don't care who or what donates money to someone running for office.

    Politicians, in large part, are career oriented and will do/say whatever is necessary to get re-elected because it beats the heck out of getting a real job and doing something productive with their lives. (Both left and right.) And that includes getting their campaigns bankrolled by whatever special interest (lib or con) that can aid them in that respect. To think otherwise is just plain daft.

    I can imagine lots of things, but politicians caring about their supposed constituents is not one of them.
