Relax, it is all going back into the economy. That is the money that will support the advertisement industry, the broadcast industry as well as countless "strategists" and give them a much needed boost for the upcoming recession.

...and the rich get richer,

while the middle class slowly watch their homes, their incomes slip away.

The middle class seem to get poorer because they are spending their money on overpriced DSL and cable internet connections.

Delta, do you have anything to contribute besides snide sarcasm?

You ignorance of the issues is apparent from the lack of useful
rebuttle to the debate.

Why is it important that these contributions come from Wall Street?

These traders, not economists or securities analysts, can turn the world upside down, make governments tremble, give central bankers colitis and ruin the lives of ordinary men and women saving for their children’s college education or their own retirement. In America today, it is the traders, not the politicians or the generals or the corporate bosses, who have the power.

Your own words my friend:

You want intelligent debate, I'll be happy to give you some. First you have to say something intelligent! Right now you are slightly better than your Finnish friend that is calling your man Ron the Devil!

You can start by explaining how you came up with these "big" numbers. Like the amount raised by Hillary is over $117 million, yet your big Wall Street firms show less than $2 million. Where is the other $115 million. In fact all of the Wall Street contributions you mentioned amount to less than $5 million yet the toals are like $400 million. Who contributed the other $395 million?

Also do you know what the maximum individual donation limit is?
