Interesting how, whenever you look at the news in the US, it's the Democratic Party that's bitching the loudest about the influence of big money in politics, even as Obama's latest re-election fundraising efforts set new records, with $86 million raised in the second quarter of this year alone. Word has it that the Obama campaign could end up raising at least a billion dollars before the campaign is over. Who ever thought that one day someone would spend a billion dollars to have himself elected President? No wonder hardly anybody bothers to vote in this country anymore.
