Give Till It Hurts

 Sheldon Adelson

I guess I'm a big time political donor. I have given a larger percentage of my wealth to the President's reelection than than the portion of his wealth that Mitt Romney's largest donor has showered so far on the Romney super-PACS.  Of course even the 100 million he has indicated he may give is as nothing to Sheldon Adelson who will have 25 billion or so left. My proportionately larger (so far) donations added to the thousands of other middle class donations cannot match the proportionately smaller donations of the top 20 fat cats.

Yes, that's right, the vast majority of the money spent on this year's campaign will come from less than 20 men - whose donations will hardly be missed by the donors -- just trifles with which they may buy a President or Congress or both.

Oligarchy 1]  a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people.

Thank Justices Scalia, Roberts, Alito, Kennedy, & Thomas who believe corporations are people and that there should be no limits on the influence of money in politics.
