you dont look people in the eye when you are lying either.
This is coming from the guy that holds the record for highest campaign contributions in the history of the planet. Now he wants to slam the door on contributors, so he's got a little better chance of not getting kicked out on his dumb ass, in 3 years.
According to the Glenn Beck program this morning, foreign contributions have never been allowed.
He's just talking out his ass, giving Pelosi a stand up/sit down workout.
I read somebody say something to this effect about "foreign contributions", and it makes sense within my limited knowledge of the subject:
Corporations are mostly now "multi-national, in that the biggest ones tend to operate in several different countries with no allegiance to any specific one. If McDonald's, for example, were allowed to contribute $1,000,000 to his campaign fund that could be construed as foreign money because they operate all over the world.
Like I said, I have limited knowledge on the idea and I made up the example, but I can see where and big corp having the ability to spend endlessly on any candidate would be a bad thing. I don't know the text of the law or the ruling and I have read conflicting evidence so I am trying to find good sources to edumacate myself on it.
EDIT: In my opinion corporations should not be able to give money at all. They can't vote, but the people who comprise them can, why shouldn't campaign contributions be the same?
