Unfortunately, USA gov't has become for sale to highest bidder ..and the highest bidder is large corporations. Natural Gas has few lobbyests or money, but is plentiful, cheap and clean... coal gets all the breaks, it has the money.

Health Ins companies have billions to keep the rules in their favor to keep raping the USA for decadent profits.

Joe Wilson has become sort of a folk hero.

He spoke what millions of people were thinking.

The media tried to play up his opponent raising 50,000 in 24 hours, but the media REFUSED to report that Wilson raised 750,000 in 48 HOURS.

He's gone well over the 1,000,000 mark.

And get THIS. The GOP has OUTRAISED the democrats in August by over 1,000,0000.

The "winds of change" are already blowing. The nation feels it, and the democrats feel it to.

Article called "Democrats are jarred by drop in fundraising"
While donations from special interest political action committees have increased, individual donors are disappearing at a rate that has alarmed party leaders: The DSCC's contributions from individuals was $18.5 million through August, a drop of $12.6 million, or nearly 40 percent, from two years earlier, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
Wow, look at THAT, the democrats are recieving MORE money from special interest groups...what a surprise, huh?

And now, the "individual" rate of ocntributions has fallen completely off....wonder why?

The article says some are big donors who don't like the democrats bashing them, or their industries.

But small individual contributions are WAY down also...gosh...the democrats keep angering the nation, calling people names.
Democrats continue to collect more from big donors than Republicans do, with their trio of national committees almost tripling the amount taken in by the GOP committees in first half of the year, according to the FEC. But Republicans are benefiting from much more energized small-dollar contributors.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee, which has been pitching itself to conservative donors as the only check against Obama's agenda, has stayed roughly even with the DSCC in overall receipts, and its cash flow is 30 percent ahead of its 2007 level.
Look at that, the REPUBLICANS are benefiting from SMALL donors much more than the democrats.

And the REPUBLICANS, with SMALL donors is staying roughly EVEN with the DSCC.

Even though the SPECIAL INTEREST money is flowing to the DEMOCRATS.

Sound like the democrats have the "will of the people" there?

NO, it sounds MORE like the little guy is rooting for the REPUBLICANS...and the big bad special interests are pouring money into the Democrats.

But, special interests don't VOTE, the people do. And even with the special interests, the GOP outraised the Democrats in August by over 1,000,000.

Democrats have had a fall off of 25% of individual contributions. The "people" just don't believe in the democrats anymore.

But the democrats refuse to hear the message.

Did you know that opposition to the HC reform has hit a new high?

56% now oppose health care reform.

That's a higher percentage than Obama's 2008 victory.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. ...we've now gone OUTSIDE the number of people that voted for Obama.

Pretty big warning flag, wouldn't you say?
