Money for Votes

Ward leaders in Philadelphia, and our illustrious Governor, are worried they won’t have enough “street money” to pay volunteers.  I should note that in suburban wards, our volunteers are volunteers.  They do the job because of a sense of civic duty, so that an important function of our republic can be carried out.

ACORN is a shining example of what happens when you pay people to achieve a certain result, and the practice of paying “street money” is an idea who’s time should have gone.  I will actually have a lot more respect for Barack Obama if he doesn’t pay up, even if it means he loses Pennsylvania.  If people don’t care enough about their candidate, or care enough about running elections without having to be paid, they can stay the hell home.  Ed Rendell is worried that could mean the Democrats lose.  There are things that are more important than that.

    The Hell You Say, man !! Obama is ALL about paying the poor, downtrodden, suffering masses (at the expense of The Man, of course) to further truth, justice, and the Way of Enlightenment !! It’s Noble Work, you see, to put The One in office for the betterment of mankind !! Such a worthy endeavor deserves a decent wage, sir!!

    calling bribes for votes “street money” is like calling rape “single-party-consentual-sex; and lies are “spin”.
