McCain Must Forgo Public Funding

June 19, 2008 Dave 2

In an effort to maximize his fundraising potential Barrack Obama has announced that he will finance his campaign entirely with private contributions. While his campaign presented this as a populist move based on his large number of small contributions from individual donors, it was no coincidence that he made the statement while sitting at a roundtable with leaders of Democratic PACs and the president of the AFL-CIO. Despite Obama’s considerable success in raising funds from individuals, it is these money-generating powerhouses which will ultimately bring in the bulk of the millions needed to run his campaign, money taken involuntarily from union workers — many of whom no longer even vote with the Democrats — and consolidated by extreme leftist organizations and wealthy individuals like George Soros working through faceless front groups.
