Why would “big money” Sheldon Adelson inject himself (and his $5million dollars) into a state election?

Fore years we have thought that members of Congress were bought. Now we learn that super casino owner, Sheldon Adelson, might be donating $5 million dollars to the re-election campaign of Eric Cantor, a fellow Jew. Eric Cantor (R-VA) is Majority Leader of the US House of Representatives and marshals the force of the Tea Party which keeps churning out legislation that has no chance of being passed by the Democrat controlled US Senate. I must note that the Minority Leader of the US Senate, Mitch McConnell (R-KY).  (Will another piggy bank drop for him?) uses the filabuster to block legislation.  Just what are Sheldon Adelson, the Koch Bros., et als “buying” by using their “big money” to pay for the campaigns of the Republican leaders in Congress and Mitt Romney? Can you spell i-n-f-l-u-e-n-c-e? Regrettably, we are not privy to the discussions Republicans have in their “quiet rooms,”  But, we simple people know they are buying power over those charged with conducting “the people’s business,” making laws that control us every day and decide our future in the world. We elect members of Congress and send them to Washington, where Republicans immediately pledge allegiance to the shadowy lobbyist Grover Norquist. [Google him to read about his power over Congress on tax matters.] Norquist’s distinction is due to his lifelong, anti-tax pledges which are signed in blood, as it were.  Our Forefathers would find  things as they are in  the Congress disgusting, like a festering boil on the butt of the nation.

Independents, Democrats and just patriotic Americans must save the USA from the corruption that rules our politics.  QUESTION:  What does the surgeon do when he opens you and finds cancer?  ANSWER:  He wields his scalpel to excise the malignancy.  Now we don’t want to spill blood to take our Congress back, but, we have power in this scenario:  WE CAN VOTE THE TEA PARTY, CORRUPT POLITICIANS AND THOSE WHO HAVE STAYED TOO LONG AT THE PARTY OUT OF OFFICE!.  The malignancy has run so deep that we have to give up benefits of seniority in Congress AND START ALL OVER with new and righteous candidates in November.  We have the power of the ballot.  There are young politicians vying for a seat in the chambers of Congress.  We have to start anew.  Look back on recent decades and see that it is true:  “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” “A fish begins to die at the head.”  The Democratic Party is the hope for real change in Washington.  President Obama promised it to us. Republicans criticize him for not delivering so far, but chuckle under their breath because they enjoy being the force that keeps Obama’s  change from being realized. One wonders if their “War on Obama” is about ideology…or blatant racism.  They must really hate the fact that finally we have a black man who is smart and skilled enough to be President of the United States.  For three years he has proved that his race is a non-issue. But, Barack Obama needs our help.  We must decide which candidates for office are righteous enough to represent us and we must have the conviction to boldly support and vote for them to win and begin change in Washington!  You may have never voted for Democrats before, but, you see that the Republican party has an agenda which would fundamentally change the America we grew up in. “Big money!”  “Big oil!” SuperPacs! “War on women.” Social injustice! The “Top 1%!” Preservation of the wealthy class as indifferent masters!  Join us.  The Democratic Party is waging a holy war to champion causes that improve the human condition.  Give us your time.  Give us your donations of money…of any amount!
