Where or where are all the poor people going to get that kind of money to get Obama re-elected? I mean, a dollar per homeless person? That's two billion homeless people. There aren't that many homeless people in America.
But, even if there are, you pay for it. You drop that dollar into the homeless person's tin cup on the corner. More of that trickle down economics at work.
That, or get two billionaires to back Obama. Which is more than likely how the system works.
At that level, candidates would spend as much to win the White House as the Walt Disney Co. spent on U.S. advertising in 2009, according to Advertising Age.

Amoung others! I'm convinced that much of the motivation behind pushing this socialism crap is that the "faithful" believe that they will be party apparatchiks when the Revolution(TM) comes. (Oh wait. Looking at the govt expansion ie SEIU, that's already shaping up nicely) They'll be the first to tell you that this is "their time".
Well, that, and the less ambitious amoung them wear living like pigs like some kind of badge of coolnicity- rats, roaches, porch falling off- the works.
Considering the venom spewed at "the wealthy" and the jet set lifestyle their celebrityships haved enjoyed since taking root in the WH, it's obvious that only the party elites are allowed to have money. *Nothing's* too good for them.edit on 5-4-2011 by DogsDogsDogs because: left out a word
