Both Obama and Romney are gearing up for serious fund raising campaigns, each fund raising event to garner a million dollars or more. When the dust finally settles and the next president is elected, the total amount spent on this political campaign will exceed $2 billion, perhaps even $3 billion depending who is doing the counting and what is being included in the tally.
So, in this exercise of sham-o-cracy, which is more important, your vote or your checkbook?
Is this the model of democracy, proudly made in America, that other nations should aspire to?
Who's kidding who?
