The Democrat party is outspending Republicans but issues will determine the winner.
Fort Worth, TX (WiredPRNews.com)—A recent report shows that Democrats are outspending Republicans in the 2008 presidential race.
According to an October 19, 2008 article by Jim Kuhnhenn of the Associated Press that appeared at Brietbart.com, Obama’s campaign collected $150 million dollars in September.
With large sums of money coming from special interests like unions and trial attorneys, the Democrats are spending massive sums of money to get their message out but it may not resonate with the voters. An example of voters rejecting the Democrats on the issues would be on the tremendous expansion of government spending.
Barack Obama has stated that he wants to impose an $850 billion global poverty tax upon American citizens. The objective of this socialist policy is to wipe out poverty in third world nations. However, we tried this in the mid 1960s with Democrat President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, which ushered in the modern welfare state that is still with us today. As former President Reagan said, ‘We waged a war on poverty, and poverty won.’
The legacy of this government spending has resulted in the destruction of inner city families. An impersonal bureaucracy, not the father, is, in many cases, responsible for the family. The results of this four-decade welfare state are horrific. High levels of drug use, out-of-wedlock births, abortions and crime are commonplace where taxpayer checks have replaced fathers.
In a time when our economy is making a fragile recovery from the mortgage meltdown caused by democrat social engineering, we cannot afford massive new programs that will take more taxpayer money.
