Presidency for Sale

Just thought you'd like to know whose interests this election is actually serving:

A recent book, The Buying of the President 2004, details some of the major campaign contributors to Bush and Democratic nominees. Though it's just a partial list, I urge you to just take a second and look at the breakdown of contributors. The top career patron for Bushy is none other than Kenneth Lay's Enron Corporation. When you look at the bottom of this list at the total combined hard & soft contributions, the list of the Democratic Party's top 10 contributors includes mostly labor organizations and unions. Now check out the Republican side. We have two tobacco giants, two telephone juggernauts, a pharmeceutical company, an oil company, and Microsoft thrown in for good measure. Maybe I should buy a Mac after all.
