However, one area of concern with the flood of donations, particularly those made online, is that foreigners could be weighing in illegally in an American election. Mr. Obama's Web site allows donors to choose an address in one of 227 possible countries or territories, including Iran, Iraq, Zimbabwe, and Yemen.
While it is a crime for most foreigners to donate to American campaigns at the federal level, those with so-called green card status can donate legally, as can Americans who live abroad.
And who's going to know if they aren't?

Well the attitude of the Americans continues to be "F" what the rest of the world thinks. We Americans are the best thing that God ever created on the earth so the rest of the world can just "kiss our grits!" We are better and more important than everyone else! Redneck nation that we are.
And hey. Being ignorant, torturing, starting wars, lying, bashing gays, wearing a big belt buckle and shooting moose is sure to get you elected in the US!

after reading this thread i now understand why the US is in the state it is in
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."

In fact, for the most part, most Americans could care less who you run for office. That is YOUR business, just as our elections are OUR business. We have enough issues to concern ourselves with, without caring whom you elect.
