Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has been receiving millions of dollars in campaign funding from Super Pac’s and fundraising events. But Romney has so far declined to tell the public where that money is coming from.

“Romney is not required by law to disclose the identities of his fundraisers with the exception of those who work as federal lobbyists,” according to USA Today. But telling voters who is giving Romney money,“has been standard in presidential campaigns for more than a decade.”

There may be good reason for Mitt Romney to be unwilling to participate in campaign funding transparency. Voters may question the motives of the people giving huge sums of money to Romney, particularly if they will reap personal financial gain from money-for-favors politics after the election.

Pretty much by definition, rich people don't join labor unions.
Much more of Obama's funding came from small donations than did Romney's.
I think all the money spent on elections is total nonsense and waste.
Civilized countries limit campaigning to 3-6 weeks. We campaign year around, every year.
In some countries, political ads on TV are considered unacceptable for TV advertising.
Oh please, God, let me see that happen in my country. Soon. The campaign spending is obscene.
Romney has done little except campaign for 6 years.
$6 BILLION DOLLARS? That's disgusting.
The rich people run the unions. They support obama because he handed them GM and is in their pocket.
Obama has never come out of campaign mode. Romney may have been in it but then again he is a private citizen and not neglecting his duties that he was elected to do like obama.

Lets see obama in 2012 got 632 milion while Romney got 388 million.

Additionally obama solicited contributions from foreign countries via the internet. This is the same thing that happened in 2008 when they traced millions of dollars that were donated to obama in small increments to a Saudi Bank. He was caught on that one and returned those funds but how many did he not get caught on?

No garden is without its weeds... What must they in bureau now do is to work properly with every person signed the treacherous petition. Names, family names, places of living, places of work, places of nearest relatives' work etc. The first thing to do now is to strip all those initiative idiots of American citizenship and to deport them somewhere to the neighboring Mexico, where the same so much freedom-loving mongrels make their living and freely trade in drugs. I bet, 70-80% of those who signed the petitions are drug addicts, alcoholics and jobless idlers.

The Tax Foundation:
http://www.taxfoundation.org/press/show/22659...



33 states and the District of Columbia get back more Federal tax dollars than they pay in.

Ironically, considering the Republican Party champions low taxes and cutting Federal taxes, 21 of the 33 states who get back more than the taxpayers in those states pay in are also states who voted for John McCain in 2008. In effect, the wealthier Blue states are subsidizing poorer, more rural Red states...much as urban counties usually subsidize rural counties on the state tax level albeit the red-leaning suburbs of urban areas (map showing red and blue counties at bottom) subsidize the dark blue super-urban inner cities of metropolitan areas. The blue city propers typically are net receivers of federal funds.

Back to the SUBJECT OF THE FORUM:

A subject that republican politicians will never ever bring up, and what they've apparently managed to hide in plain sight from their own constituents for decades...

"The 10 highest tax-producing states have all been “blue states” over the last few presidential elections. Of the 10 LOWEST, eight are “red.”

"It’s a well-known irony that states that tend to vote Republican—the party that constantly raves about the “makers” and trolls the “takers”—generally take in more tax money than they pay out.

On the subject:

"The secession effort has attracted a predictable rogues' gallery of racists and neo-Nazis.

"Given that there was no similar large-scale effort to secede when Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton or George W. Bush won re-election, liberals can't be blamed for detecting a particular white fury at Obama's success."

(Written by Timothy Stanley, a historian at Oxford University who blogs for Britain's The Daily Telegraph. He is the author of "The Crusader: The Life and Times of Pat Buchanan.")

One does not hav to be an Oxford historian or Osford, Harvard, Hale, MIT or Sorbonne anything to know history or any other subject for that matter. All one has to do is research and I ain't meaning relying on internet 100 percent. One book I am reading at the present is Ermengard of Narbonne by Fredric L. Cheyette. Not only am I learning about one of me ancestors, I am also learning a lot about the real facts of the 10th, 11th and 12th centuries which I say that to say this, that period of time is falsely taught at places such as the aforementioned just as the present. Quite possibly and hopefully le president will spend most of the next 4 year term with his socialist buddies, Vladimir Putin, Wen Jiabao and Hun Sen as he did earlier this week and leave we lovers of Constitutional USA alone. Oi Vey, we should live so long. A little of my Jewish cousinness there.

A confirmed illiterate who truly believes his uninformed opionion, based on nothing but hate and fear, has as much value as the informed opinion of an Oxford historian, has earned my compassion.

Your anti-intellectualism makes you a perfect fit for the failing Republican party.

The kind thing to do would be to ignore your embarrassing rants. So I shall.

O great and wise Researcher, did you insert not only am I learning about one of me ancestors sentence or mean the entire post? I am pleased the judge and jury, Researcher, deems me to be a confirmed illiterate with uninformed opinion, based on nothing but hate and fear with the anti-intellectualism comment capped with rants came from your eminence's fingertips. It is very valued and means a lot to this humble peasant. The me in me ancestors was not done ignorantly but as a tribute to me ancestors. You see, your worthiness, some of me cuzzins around the world talk like that just as some of me ancestors who are also their ancestors did. No wonder Europeans and asians think Americans think they are the gifts of the gods to the human race and Parisians, Londoners and Berliners should move aside and bow to your eminences when in public because that is how people such as yourself come across when they go to the civilised world. Now be a man of your word and ignore this rant. Be kind to the lower strata of life, your highness. Usually to folks like you, I write your Highendness but I'll be nice. I take after me ancestors.

Funny how you failed to mention that Bush was also in the top 10. Could it be an attempt to distort what this poll really says? Convenient that you opted to stop at obama.
