I contribute monthly to the Obama campaign and I am astonished that such a large number do not contribute to any of the political parties.

President Obama is not a terrorist. Lateralis, you and consumer1 are trying to stir up an argument by the words and phrases that you use. I like it that the President shows respect to foreign leaders and has a calm and thoughtful manner. A great deal could have been accomplished if his plans had been allowed to go though instead of being torpedoed by angry, bitter people who voted on bills with their emotion mind. It is awful to think how many of the working class and middle class had their problems and their lives shoved aside just to massage the ego of those who are like bulldogs with their teeth sunk into what they perceive as the enemy.

Most people probably help fund political campaigns unknowingly. For example, every time you give money to Susan G. Komen, you're helping fund Republican activities.

I am active in campaigning and have volunteered much time and production skills. Does that count?

As far as contributing money goes, I resent the fact that we have to buy democracy (yes, I know the US is not a democracy, but you know what I mean).

In my case, I do believe that the person I'm campaigning for is much, much, much better than the incumbent and will be a good person to have in office, but even if it's a vote for the lesser of two evils, isn't that worth voting for?

That might just be the dumbest question ever. The only ones giving money are Insurance companies, oil companies, auto makers, gun makers, deffense industry, airlines, hospitals, mortgage companies, utility companies, I m sure I missed a bunch.... Damn crooks, they could be holding a will work for food sign and I still wouldn't give them money
