Re: Californian#1@94131 San Francisco, CA"Perhaps we need a Federally
mandated limit on how much money candidates can raise from any combination of
sources and how much they can spend."Translation: Lets put a
muzzle on our 1st Amendment right of free speech and dictate how people will be
allowed to spend their money.
The amount of money spent by candidates to buy off the American people is
obscene. Imagine how much actual GOOD could be done with all the
money being dumped down the bottomless pit of Presidential campaign spending.
Especially since the average American voter will again hold his or her nose and
vote for what they consider the lesser of two evils.Perhaps we need
a Federally mandated limit on how much money candidates can raise from any
combination of sources and how much they can spend. Or prohibit fundraising and
private donations altogether. Within a prescribed limit, provide an equal amount
of Federal funding for major-party contenders, then an equal amount to the
Democratic and Republican nominees and a pro-rated amount to each third-party
candidate based on their party's vote percentage in the last Presidential
election. Let the crooks spend the money any way they want--buying time to lie
on TV, space in the New York Times to lie in print, websites to lie in
cyberspace, or fuel to travel around the country lying in person.
How will Obama pay for his next vacation? opps! I guess the tax payers will.
This is a lot of whistling past the graveyard for the Obama campaign!
Re: ute alumni Tengoku, UT"cold war analogy is correct, freedom versus
communisim. history will repeat itself this November."As Bill
Clinton said: "It's the economy stupid". There is a reason why
Romney was ablt to salvage the 2002 Winter Olympics and leave with $100 million
left in the bank. He has the Mojo that John McCain lacked.There is
a reason why Romney is dropping a ton of money on states that are safe for
Obama. It will force Obama to spend money he doesn't have defending
territory he thinks is safe.
Obama is a little league president while Romney plays in the majors. A business
man compared to someone who couldn't run a lemonade stand. The choice has
never been clearer.
cold war analogy is correct, freedom versus communisim. history will repeat
itself this November.
"...as long as Democrats continue to step up, we will have the resources we
need to make sure voters understand the devastating impact a Romney presidency
will have on the middle class..." - Bill BurtonAs a middle class
man, I welcome a Romney presidency. I believe he will do better at influencing
a balanced budget and I believe that he will make better use of the funds the
federal government has.
