Who Do You Want Influencing Government?

Business Cash for Bush Campaign, Lawyers for Kerry

Campaign fundraising by the two are fairly close. Out of 10 business sectors, Bush got support from 8, Kerry from 2 (lawyers and lobbyists). I guess unions were not part of this measure.

The unions really have greatly declined in their influence, as we saw with gephardt in Iowa.

I really don't want businesses OR lawyers determining the needs of American citizens.

Interesting breakdown of each candidate's fundraising by sector. The graph is slightly misleading since the dollar amount scale is skewed to fit the available space.

Kerry

Bush

Looks like Bush takes his share from lawyers/lobbyists, too.

It's all about the money If you don't have it no one is going to listen. The only difference is, the Democrats will pretend to care, the Republicans will let you know straight up they don't. I am disillusioned in the American 2 party system.

is no one troubled by 'Other'?

by my account, 'Other' provides 19% of bush's funding and 28% of kerry's.

When corporations, business and unions are allowed to cast votes, they can have a say. Until then, let Indra be the one to influence the government.

We're all indra
