Who's Behind the Funding: Barack Obama vs John McCain vs Ron Paul


http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/3493/2008presidentialcamp...

Both Barack Obama's and John McCain's top supporters were the exact same international banks, like Goldman Sachs, that both corrupt Democrats and corrupt Republicans in Congress forced to be illegally bailed out on the backs of the American people.

In stark contrast, Ron Paul's top supporters were the United States Army, United States Navy, and United States Air Force, and did not include any bailed out international banks.

Someone gave this a negative vote?

Obama's #1 supporter in 2008 was Goldman Sachs

This is the sign people should be carrying at OWS.

Key Info for Occupy Wall Street:

Obama represents Wall Street bankers!

Don't forget Hillary supporters

were the self, same Obama supporters..They couldn't lose..And these funds ended up comming out of,"(WE the Peoples')" pockets, in the form of bailouts.
Talk about mis appropriation of funds & conflict of interest, there has been non bigger..

Maybe we need to do a new chart then.

The only problem is that the numbers have changed since the 2008 election. But it should still have similar results. Actually Hillary wasn't the Democratic candidate and probably won't be in the future either, so I'm not sure if it's too critical.

It would be interesting to compare how much money Obama received from the banks, and how much he voted to give the same banks as bailouts.

Very important fact

Thanks

Indeed! When Ron Paul says Obama's a "Corporatist," he's right!

Obama is working for the corrupt banking system running/ruining the country.

...and so is McCain.

McCain got $137,842

from the US Government. What's that about?

Check out Obama's large $$ - that's a lot of payback.

Government Employees

All donations are from the employees. So of course, government employees support a big government candidate like McCain.

For example, George W. Bush's contribution to McCain would have been "U.S. government."

Government employees don't want to cut government.

thats weird.....there were

thats weird.....there were quite a few defence contractor companies that donated to ron paul?

Ron Paul Believes in Technology & Defense!

Why is that weird?

Ron Paul Rated #1 in Congress for Technology
http://www.dailypaul.com/node/71617

Out of all 535 representatives in the United States Congress, Rep. Ron Paul (TX) is rated number one for defending the freedoms of technology related proposals, scoring 88.24%. In comparison, Sen. John McCain (AZ) scores 38.46%, and Sen. Barack Obama (IL) scores 33.33%.

Keep in mind, the contributions are from individuals, so these are employees of the companies. Maybe they've been sent over to Iraq or Afghanistan and would like to come home. Or maybe they just realize our foreign policy is wrong because they directly see the results.
