I’m hoping our two GOP stalwarts will stop by to explain how this works to me. The moderator of “This Week” forgot to ask.

Gingrich added, “The next step is the one Justice Clarence Thomas cited — candidates should be allowed to take unlimited amounts of money from anybody. And you would, overnight, equalize the middle class and the rich.

How does that even make sense?

I suppose this would involve the same mechanism that causes federal revenues to increase when taxes are decreased?

Obviously the rich strive to have the power and influence of the middle class.

Me: Newt’s idea doesn’t make sense.
Doppelganger (with goatee of evil): I am from a mirror universe…that means it SHOULD make sense to me, got no idea…maybe we could try asking an entity from a Qlipothic dimension?
Me: Uh…lets not…much safer
Doppelganger: Good point.

“In its majestic equality, the law forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, beg in the streets and steal loaves of bread.” [Anatole France]

As updated by Newt: The law should allow rich and poor alike to donate as many millions as they wish to my political party.

Maybe underpaid workers should sue their employers for trampling their 1rst Amendment rights by not giving them enough money to “speak”.

I would guess that in GOP world, this “equalizes” the middle class and the rich because then each individual would be able to donate as large a percentage of their income to candidates as they choose. You know, like the way the GOP gives everyone an “equal” tax cut of say 5% which amounts to a few bucks for ordinary people and hundreds of thousands of dollars for a One Percenter.

My thought?

You keep using that word but I don’t think it means what you think it means.

They pay this POS to say stuff like this. Amazing. Thanks, idiots.

brought to you by the same mindset that wants to re-instate only land-owning white males as voters, and goes even further to recommend a number of votes tied to how much wealth you own.

Modern Republicanism has officially gone full mainstream on its anti-democratic agenda. No hiding behind a facade, no more pussy-footing around.

I own the newspaper and the tv station but you can write your letter to the editor. That makes us all equal. Unless it’s not fit to print. You got ID?

Must be nice to be able to burn that amount of cash and not be hurt. Or have a lick of sense.

It should be noted that Gingrich is what passes for a ‘thinker’ in today’s GOP.

Paul Krugman described Gingrich as what a stupid person thinks a smart person sounds like.
