"We have the most corrupt federal election under way since money became big in politics,"
Ok Sam. Any evidence of corruption to back your claims on an election that is just getting started? I guess it didn't bother you that non-US citizens were contributing to Obama in 2008 from the following countries: the Virgin Islands, Vienna, The Hague, Madrid, London, Geneva, Tokyo, Bangkok, Turin, Paris, Munich, Madrid, Roma, Zurich, Moscow, Milan, Singapore, Beijing, Switzerland, Toronto, Vancouver, Dublin, Panama, Berlin, Geneva, Buenos Aires, Prague, Nagoya, Budapest, Barcelona, Sweden, Taipei, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, Zurich, Ragusa, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Uganda, Mumbai, Tunis, Zacatecas, St. Croix, Mississauga, Lima, Copenhagen, Dubai, Jeddah, Kabul, Cairo, and many others.

"The fact that hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate spending can happen without a fingerprint... I don't think our forefathers and foremothers ever intended that."
It is appalling how corporations like SEIU, AFL-CIO, OEA, AFT and other our buying our politicians. I sure hope you haven't taken any money from them.

By the way Sam, how is Portland's "voter own election" system going?

HEY ANDY, YOU REALIZE THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS HAVE AS MUCH REPRESENTATION IN CONGRESS AS WASHINGTON, DC, RIGHT?

OF COURSE YOU DON'T. THAT WOULD REQUIRE FACTUAL KNOWLEDGE.

FYI Occupy PDX passed the following October 22nd
"We, Occupy Portland do not see corporations as people so we seek to end Corporate Personhood."

So Corp Personhood is Occupy PDX issue, don't have to refer to it being Occupy WS issue.
