this sort of thing should be illegal . only legal registered citizens should be all owed to donate and a limit 0f $500 put on them .. all this money could be used to pay down the debt , take care of the needy , and lower prices being charged for everything we buy . time for the many to take back our country from the rich greedy ones and all foreign countries . we can do it and to start we must vote out ALL those who will not go along with us . let us stand up to all this nonsense in washington and in all elected offices .
Lobbyists either need to be removed or their process must be reformed.
We the PEOPLE (you know, real, living, breathing human beings) are the ones who should have the greater voice in government - Not multinational corporations who may not have America's best interests in mind.
If large corporations' number one priority is to make profits (globally), they should not be able to overpower the voice of individuals who live HERE in AMERICA. Capitalists claim to be patriots? Our globalist laissez-faire capitalism has been ANYTHING BUT PATRIOTIC to the USA.
No wonder we can't shake corruption in the markets.
Close the banks. End the Federal Reserve. Get rid of Wall Street. If these shysters can donate to the bureaucracy that ails us, they can fund job recovery, restore our home values and for once- bail US!!
"The staggering figures have prompted some to ask whether money can buy a seat in the House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate -- even the presidency."
Of course it can. There is only one single way to fix that. Go back to restricting donations to any and all political parties. The rich are in fact getting FAR more richer and that shows in polictics. Will that ever happen now? NEVER! They all make way to much money from 'donations' to ever go back.
While were at it, and an issue that is just as important, we need to cut ALL advertising funds for all news tv news cast. For 30 minutes a day it could give a single news cast no political/corporate agenda (through adds) to care to and just report facts and real issues.
Wall Street wants Mitt to be POTUS.
it should be made illegal for buisnesses and corparations to pay for events, give gifts of any kind or incentives, or make donations larger then $5k (only one donation allowed) to any politician, state or federal.
that would really change things in our government.
Corporations should NOT be able to buy the government and buy politicians and policy ANYMORE by using unlimited contributions for elections and lobbying. They should not have a greater voice than any other individual in this country.... Constitutionalists Note: It's "We the PEOPLE"... not "we the corporations".

<<<You can see here who is interested in Romney for Prez. and why.
Romney's top 5 contributors are Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America and Credit Suisse.
Obama's top 5 contributors are the University of California, Microsoft, Google, DLA Piper and Harvard University
5 million given to Obama by Health Professionals? How can that be? I was told by fox that health professionals hated Obama because of Obama care.>>>
And to think the bankers would bite the hand that feeds them. You don't think his campaign would have refused to accept contributions from the big banks this election because it would seem unethical, do you?
