    Rove is counting on a GOP win, thus ensuring his PAC donations will remain secret - keeping it all in the family, so to speak. Apparently, voting for candidates accepting donations and free advertising from those corporations most intent on continuing job outsourcing is OK for the party of GOPers, yes? Voting against your own best interests seems to be the GOPers newest meme. Strange.

    FACT: Arguing against the Dems' efforts to fix the problem of secret donors as though they are invalid simply because there are private organizations out there doing it on the Dems' behalf is exactly the same as saying the following...

    "It's broken, but we're not going to take one side's offer to fix it because both sides are doing what makes it broken."

    See? Makes no sense. Stop saying it.

    Funny! Obama received donations from Dubia and record donations from AGI, guess that's different since he's a dumbocrat. Let's not also forget all the campaign donations Obama received from Canadian citizens.

    What exactly is the difference between taking money from foreign sources and trying to allow illegal aliens vote as Obama is trying to do. Democrats are sounding more and more like Islamic extremists every day.

    $3 Billion dollars spent on ADS. How much of the American’s money, who donated $25 or a little more, is in that $3 Billion Dollars????????????????? Americans don't have a small fraction of that money and WE ARE THE PEOPLE – the constituents these politicians are running for!!!! Every SMALL donor is being "PUMMELED" by BIG CORPS and SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS that are stepping into our territory and deciding our vote!!! It’s NOT FAIR???

    VOTERS – ask yourself – Should WE decide the elections Or should BIG Corporations, BIG/small business/CORPs, Companies who OUTSOURCE our jobs, Foreign Entities, Corporations whose SOLE INTEREST is to PRIVATIZE benefits we are receiving (which is what the Republicans are preaching), Private Sectors who are FALSELY claiming they cannot HIRE because the future is uncertain – when they know DAMN WELL they are protecting their BIG BONUSES and WILL NOT begin hiring until that amount is SETTLED – KEEP in mind, all CORPORATIONS usually hire in the LAST QUARTER/FIRST QUARTER of the year AFTER BONUSES so they can budget the next year (PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND)??????? Private sectors are currently most likely OVERWORKING their STAFF for ‘Dolla’ Bills Ya’ll’!!!

    WAKE UP and smell the CORRUPTION!!! It’s not just foreign interest that is devastating our elections – it’s BIG CORPs that will disrupt EVERYTHING this administration has done thus far!!! LISTEN to what they are saying about Education, Social Security, Gay Rights, Minimum Wage, Medicare, DADT, Health Care (listen to THAT closely because it is NOT about REPEALING anymore – it’s about FIXING 10% of it because they know WE the PEOPLE want Health Care Reform), and how they want to ABOLISH IT!!

    This is T’SAH from Virginia and I am FIRED UP on trying to STOP the CORRUPTION coming from the RIGHT!!! I approve this message!!

    nothing wrong with anonymous donations if its money from within but Indian governments making huge donations to republican candidates only mean one thing, the latters support for OUTSOURCING! Like India haven't taken enough jobs from us!
