soc_politics I could sit back and say nothing, but that's not my style. My opinions here are my own and do not reflect in any way on my business associates or clients. Rob McCord resigned as #PA Treasurer and subsequently acknowledged that he misused his power while soliciting campaign funds. I know Rob McCord. I am not only saddened, shocked and depressed, but disillusioned. Rob McCord is one of the good guys. I mean it. He is a GOOD guy. If he, for what ever reason, can find himself in the position where his activity is not only beneath him, but illegal, what are the "not good guys" doing? I have no knowledge of the "who, what, where" but I know he is guilty. So, what makes him a good guy? He screwed up, really badly! However, he did the right thing. He resigned ahead of allegations, and provided a full admission immediately with a video apology. That takes a lot of courage, but it is also the right thing to do. No one ever does it though. Nobody. It takes weeks, months and years and they are still in denial. This entire matters began and came to a close in under 24 hours. It's easy to run from people when they are in trouble, but I stand with Rob McCord, not because he is innocent, but because he's guilty and took responsibility. I know that his campaign strategy was wrong to begin with and although he was sure he was going to win, he never had a prayer. That type of disappointment and pressure can push people to do bad things. No excuse for his actions. You cannot cross the line. And I'm surprised that he did. But he did and he will pay for those actions. He has cast a bad light on the #Democratic Party going into the 2015 elections following on the heels of Kathleen Kane's recommended indictment. I don't know her, but she did not do the courageous thing. She did the selfish thing. I don't know for sure that she is guilty, but she did not protect her colleagues and friends. Most Democrats believe she's guilty and yet she has allowed herself to be the headline for nearly a year. I stand with Rob McCord because he is honorable even in the light of this incident. #politics #scandal #robmccord #papolitics #democrats #PATreasurer #teammccord #TomWolf #election2015 2h

but_who_will_build_the_roads One myth that won't die and is repeatedly used to whip women and liberals up into an equality hysteria. #libertarian #voluntaryist #ancap #politics #democrats #republicans #progressives #teaparty #wagegap 5h

  •   but_who_will_build_the_roads @christiana32 For me to be able to reply to your post I need to know what you're talking about. Your comment seems to have no relation to the fact that it is proven that there is no gap between the wages of men and women for doing equal work. 3h
  •   but_who_will_build_the_roads @dustins_politics @drewbekillenem Have I been drinking too much or is the comment by @christiana32 valid? I'm still trying to grasp what she's trying to say. 3h
  •   dustins_politics Translation "you arent showing exactly where the gap comes from. You should try living in a world that pays you .77$ per 1$ a male gets. Then tell me how you feel" 3h

the_new_deal_ "There was once a time in history when the limitation of governmental power meant increasing liberty for the people. In the present day the limitation of governmental power, of governmental action, means the enslavement of the people by the great corporations."—Theodore Roosevelt #theodoreroosevelt #theroosevelts #teddyroosevelt #liberalism #progressivism #corporatism #patriot #industrialrevolution #bullmooseparty #conservative #conservatives #republican #republicans #GOP #liberal #liberals #progressive #democrat #democrats #libertarian #libertarians #teaparty #politics #capitalism #occupy #taxtherich #socialism #workingclass #uniteblue #thenewdeal 6h

political_leader #Repost @the_new_deal_ Today 1 in 4 corporations pay nothing in federal taxes. Despite the 35% corporate tax rate, these corporations through tax loopholes & deductions, pay (according to GAO) an effective rate of 12.6%. These loopholes cost the American tax payer $180 billion per year in federal revenue. It's time for real tax reform. #berniesanders #berniesanders2016 #taxreform #corporatetax #taxes #conservative #conservatives #republican #republicans #GOP #liberal #liberals #progressive #democrat #democrats #libertarian #libertarians #teaparty #politics #capitalism #crapitalism #occupy #taxtherich #socialism #workingclass #middleclass #patriot #uniteblue #thepoliticalleader 7h
