Is YOUR Vote For Sale?

Is your vote for sale? Most Democrats believe it is - they are buying votes everywhere, and they are using taxpayer money to do it. In other words, they are using YOUR money to buy YOUR vote.

Don't believe it? Here is just one of hundreds of examples discovered...

California voted in 2008 to float a bond issue for $40 BILLION dollars to build a high speed choo-choo. The state is broke, but that did not matter.

Now guess what? The government just awarded them a $902 million grant for that train. Today the story broke with the following quote...

"Most of the $902 million announced Monday is earmarked for railways in the state's Central Valley, considered a key campaign spot in one of this year's more heated Senate races".

Think about that for a moment. This is BARBARA BOXER'S district, and she is in a tight race against Carly Fiorina. Boxer could easily lose, when suddenly, just one week before election, voters in her district are suddenly the recipients of a $902 million dollar grant. Coincidence? Don't kid yourselves - there's no such thing as coincidence in politics, folks.

The Obama Administration is apparently trying to buy the Senate seat for Boxer, as it has tried to buy hundreds of other Senate and House seats across the country using taxpayer funded grants and stimulus funds.

If the good people of California are so naive as to allow anyone to simply bribe them, then perhaps they deserve a state that is bankrupt and has a bleak future. Because once a politician buys you, they no longer serve YOU - you serve THEM.

As a side note, I find it truly amazing that in recent polls only 8% of California citizens believe that their state is headed in the right direction. EIGHT PERCENT! Yet they just keep right on re-electing the same people who got them into the mess they are in - they have had a Democrat legislature and Democrat Senators for decades. The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over, and expect a different result each time. I sure hate to think 92% of Californians are insane, but their voting record would indicate they suffer from the same symptoms...
