follow the money

A question worth asking, and an answer worth pondering, is "Why would someone spend $1,000,000.00 to win an office that only pays $135,000.00?"

Obviously, this is an old and out of date query.

Buyers Remorse' Leaves Obama Campaign Struggling for Campaign Funds

"Conservatives just two years ago feared Obama would raise and spend a billion dollars in the 2012 campaign. Now, there is a real possibility that Romney and his official partners at the Republican National Committee could overtake Obama in total spending."

A billion dollars; $1,000,000,000.00.  Each.

The obscenity of this just floors me.  In this race to achieve ultimate power, two campaigns are ready to spend a billion dollars or more, each, to try to convinvce us that they have the best man for the job of President of The United States.

I wonder what George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin and other Founders might have thought of this?

I wonder what you think of this.
