Remember: Only Donate To The Candidate Directly
« on: May 16, 2016, 03:37:46 PM »
The problem is evidence indicates some Tea Party groups care far less about your ideals and far more about your money—taking it and making it their own. They’re an ideological Ponzi scheme; they use donations to generate more donations, by creating sensationalistic ad campaigns to persuade donors they’re getting value, and to scare or guilt them, and new donors, into sending more donations.
Here are five very recognizable organizations that spend vastly more on fundraising efforts than on support for any candidate.

Someone is lining there bank account and it not the candidate.  I only give to the candidate only. 
A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Wait until you sit in a United Fund office listening to how much money they spent on decorating a single 15-by-15-foot room: $15,000 in paneling, carpet and undistinguished ceiling lights. That was in 1975. I've refused to donate, ever since.
