2012 Presidential Race
So, I got an email a couple of days ago urging me to donate to President Obama's campaign. Apparently he has been out-raised by the Romney campaign by millions, and has raised over 100 million dollars. Wow. This just is awe inspiring. These two guys can get money out of regular folks like me and on up to the wealthiest of contributors. One of the big platforms of this campaign is jobs. There are a lot of people out of work. A lot of people who are struggling. So, why do we rally around and throw money at these people who are going to serve as the president and "represent" us, and give them our hard earned money to buy hateful advertisements and such? Imagine what could be done with all of that money raised to help people here? To help the unemployed, education, infrastructure, small businesses, etc. What a waste it is to buy our elections as we do.
