Political Contributors

An interesting list of top political contributors hit the Internet today. Of the top 10 industries giving money to our corrupt legislators, only 1 top recipient is a Republican. Here is the list, for what it is worth. Note that Democrats, who claim Republicans are the beneficiaries of business giving, are universally the top % beneficiaries in industry after industry. That is the meaning of the new term 'crony capitalist'. We no longer have free enterprise. We have bribe enterprise.

Think these contributions are not bribes? Take a look at securities. Even with the total hostility of Obama and the Democrats, the "Securities and Investment" category has only dropped from giving 75% to Democrats down to giving 66% to Democrats. The next time someone tells you Wall Street is in bed with Republicans, ask them why Wall Street overwhelmingly gives to Democrats, and has for the last 40 years.
