I thought this might give some of you a better perspective on what motivates people
like Bush and Company to put our kids in harms way.

2005 www.washingtontechnology.com...
2004 www.defensenews.com...

Now if only we could find an accurate list of how much these good 'ol boys
spent to support the Bush and Company election campaign.

You must not have looked very hard.


See Opensecrets.org for all your political contribution information. The link I gave here goes directy to Defense sector lobbyists contributions. Each company in the lists you supplied can be searched on OpenSecrets. It's a really well done website.

These lists below don't show who they gave money to: Republican or Democrat. You can view each company individually to see how their contributions break down. It's the law that all contributions like this have to be reported, so most of this information should be pretty accurate.


This is a sample of lobbyist expenditures (like I said, the site is very extensive):

Defense Aerosace top 4
-------------------------------
Lockheed Martin - $9,740,000
Northrop Grumman - $6,882,720
Textron Inc - $4,680,000
United Technologies - $3,031,969

Defense Electronics top 4
--------------------------------
Raytheon Co - $2,320,000
Science Applications International Corp - $1,370,000
TRW Inc - $1,120,000
Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp - $1,020,000

Misc Defense top 4
------------------------
General Dynamics - $4,684,226
Newport News Shipbuilding - $3,140,000
Litton Industries - $2,440,000
United Defense - $1,260,000


It even gets nifty cool specific like so if you click on a contributor.
