Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 12 -- 527 Committee Mega-Wealthy Contributors.

Top "527" Contributors During the 2004 Campaign Cycle:

Some interesting figures. The Democrats did an amazing job at raising gargantuan sums of money from ultra-wealthy individuals like George Soros. Republicans came through near the end of the campaign, but their contributions still paled in comparison to the money raised by left-wing 527 groups. Looking at the top 25 individual donors exclusively, Democrats raised nearly three times as many of these nebulous dollars than Republicans. Going beyond the top 25 individual donors, the story doesn't change a whole lot. Democrats simply out-527'ed Republicans in 2004.

Let's hope the playing field is a little more even, from the beginning, next time around. When Marxist ideas go head-to-head with free-market principles on a fair playing field, the left's ideas go down in flames every time.

But let's not try to engineer a fair playing field with a bunch of new government regulatons, with so-called "campaign finance reform." The Democrats owed their advantage in 2004, in part, to the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (BCRA), championed in the Senate by Republican John McCain of Arizona, along with Wisconsin Democrat Russ Feingold.

Ahhh... it's interesting to know so many rich dems wasted a buncha moola over the last election.

What a bad investment that was. That just goes to show us how well Democrats waste money! It counts up!
