McCain Must Forgo Public Funding

June 19, 2008 Dave 17

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.
