you need money.
I am still undecided on who I am going to vote for or even make it past the primaries.
doing a little research on the candidates and you find all these no-names running, why are they no names, cause they dont have massive funds backing them
I found http://projects.washingtonpost.com/2...al-candidates/ and in each candidates profile it lists the amount they have raised, spent and have on hand, all the ones everyone is focusing on has some serious campaign cash, and you see why they are in the spot light, cause of the money
the democrats have ALLOT more cash then the republicans for starters.
here is a list of a few
Hilliary $45 mill, $12.8 mill
Obama $36 mill, spent $16 mill
Mike Gravel (you might ask who is that guy) he only has $36k, spent $100k
Edwards $6.5 mill, spent $13 mill
Giuliani $18 mill, spent $11 mill
McCain $3 mill, spent $13 mill
Ron Paul $2 mill, spent $500k
Romney $12 mill, spent $20.8 mill
of all the candidates I think Ron Paul has done the most with his money with getting his name out, mostly coming from his stance. Could be what America needs right now to really help out economics and keep America strong internally. I am unsure though of his non-foreign policy involvement policy as there are pro's and con's to it, as Early on the USA took that stance, but quickly changed when it began effecting the US. I think we need some involvement at the right times or the Hilter's and Ahmadinejad's will do great evil. I would like to see our currency be put back on the gold standard, instead of letting our dollar decay like it has. We need to over come china's surging economy as well by producing more goods to supply the world.
