They Aren’t Dummies!

23 Jul

Two recent items in the press have to make you wonder about the sanity of those spending millions on the Presidential campaigns. The New York Times reported on July 18 that “despite months of negative advertising from Mr. Obama and his Democratic allies seeking to further define Mr. Romney as out of touch with the middle class and representative of wealthy interests, the [NY Times/ CBS News] poll shows little evidence of any substantial nationwide shift in attitudes about Mr. Romney.” Mr. Romney now leads Mr. Obama 47% to 46%.

So what was gained by Mr. Obama’s campaign burning through “$58 million in June, chiefly on TV ads assailing his rival?” It appears nothing. Yet, both campaigns have millions on hand to keep doing more of the same: Mr Romney has $170 million to Mr. Obama $147 million. The people who provide these millions aren’t dummies. They know their money isn’t buying the election, but they also know their contribution won’t be forgotten in the halls of government when future decisions affecting their interests will be under consideration.

Should we do nothing and let this flow of money continue to corrupt our politics or should we seek a way to change the dynamics of American elections? VOTER ISSUE ALLIANCES MIGHT JUST BE THAT WAY.

Isn’t this message worth bringing to your friends and contacts? Shouldn’t each of us try to do something to improve the state of American politics instead of just shaking our heads?
