    This won't go over well at Karl Rove's house.

    he's going up against a multi-millionaire many times over who's getting bankrolled by the likes of Adelson & the Kochs. It is a big deal.

    And look at the percentages. Around 98% of Democratic Donations from well over a millions small donors.

    The Republicans donations come from fewer people. A lot fewer and only a small percentage of those are from small donors.

    Are we supposed to vote for the person with highest donations, or vote for the person with the policy and ideas we agree with?

    The person with the policy and ideas we agree with.

    Mitt: I Won’t Detail Plans, Because Then I’d Lose

    So the thing to do is advocate reduced spending in general but decline to furnish details until after the election. This is a tried-and-true conservative strategy, embraced by everyone from Ronald Reagan to Paul Ryan (who specifies severe cuts to programs for the very poor, but otherwise relies on unspecified cuts to omnibus categories, thus allowing Republicans to deny plans to cut any specific component of them.)

    -------------------------------------------

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29A1NxpPX7w]Romney: Illegal Immigrants With 'Advanced Degrees' Should Get Permanent Status - YouTube[/ame]

    -----------------------------------------------

    What's funny is that Romney is advocating cutting education in his policies, on Youtube and in Paul Ryan's budget.

    So why does he welcome immigrants over the majority of his base made up of white men without any college? Because it's "cheaper" to bring immigrants here who are educated than educate those in his base who could use one of the more than three million jobs open because people with those skills aren't available. And Romney will make sure they will never be.

    Talk about voting against your own self interest.

    Just checking.
    Seems the OP was more interested in who collected the most donations.

    Is it really a good thing? This buying of our government?
