So instead of using Public capped funds and a Swiftboat load of 527 Campaign groups with unlimited funding limits like Bushie did in 2004, he seems to be just aiming straight ahead and going gun for gun.
Both sides have 527 groups and there are 527s that are independent of any candidate [get out the vote groups] but since Obama has pushed PACs away [a form of 527] direct funding by the people is his primary fundraising.
Frankly, McCain should do the same, NOW. Limit lobbyists to ZERO and go direct to straight donations. Until they can fix the campaign finance laws and close all the loopholes, it makes sense.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble,
and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
