Diaper Donors … How Low or Young can Politics Sink?

 

Ever wonder why politicians have such low approval ratings? Maybe its because Baby-cartoonthey are willing to use children to get elected and never pass any real  laws with teeth to protect them against predators.

How low can political fund raising sink? The question now should be … how young? In the run up to the 2008 Presidential elections, its all about the political fund raising, the war chest; however, at what cost? No longer are candidates getting campaign dollars from the dead (at least not yet reported), presidential hopefuls are now getting money from “DIAPER DONORS”. This is not just a Democratic event, Republicans are doing it to.

It is one thing for children to take an active role in politics at a young age. It is quite something different when parents use their children as a “money laundering” vehicle to get someone elected. OK, its plausible that teens and middle schoolers could be doing political civics events, when they are not getting birth control. However, no one can believe that a 2, 4 or 6 year old is donating to campaigns.

Also, since when do 13 year olds have a spare $2000 to give to a campaign? One would think that they would be buying video games. However, in our fund raising at all cost political environment, this is acceptable. What a shame that we have lost all that is right in order to skirt the fine line of the law.

Elrick Williams’s toddler niece Carlyn may be one of the youngest contributors to this year’s presidential campaign. The 2-year-old gave $2,300 to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.).

So did her sister and brother, Imara, 13, and Ishmael, 9, and her cousins Chan and Alexis, both 13. Altogether, according to newly released campaign finance reports, the extended family of Williams, a wealthy Chicago financier, handed over nearly a dozen checks in March for the maximum allowed under federal law to Obama.

Such campaign donations from young children would almost certainly run afoul of campaign finance regulations, several campaign lawyers said. But as bundlers seek to raise higher and higher sums for presidential contenders this year, the number who are turning to checks from underage givers appears to be on the rise.

      Disregard my previous post, this is what I wanted to post.

      Elimination of the two party system and term limits might help.

      Maybe we can get a committee of regular working class people to devise a campaign oversight committee that sets a limit of spending on campaigns, like if you go over 2 million in campaign funds and campaign advertising etc, you have to pay 120 percent taxes on the overage and 50% penalty.

      Why should any taxpayer be honest when it comes to our government when crap like this goes on?

      In our dreams, huh.

      Don’t know about anyone else, but I never had $2,000 to give away when I was two years old.

      Matter of fact, I thought that it wasn’t legally possible.

      Well, hey, different rules for the rich, I guess.

      Maybe there should be a law that only people of voting age can make political contributions … come to think of it, there probably is. But there are so many laws that nobody cares anymore.

      If dollars grew in diapers, oh what a swell I’d be,
      I’d summer in the mountains, and winter by the sea,
      On beaches with my honey, and all our kids nearby,
      If dollars grew in diapers, you’d never hear me cry.

      If dollars grew in diapers, I’d give to candidates,
      I’d give them all the limit, at least the fashion plates.
      I’d tell them what to vote for, and projects that are right.
      If dollars grew in diapers, I’d launder them all night.

      If dollars grew in diapers I’d be the finest guy.
      I’d teach my kids to donate to the leading pols to buy.
      It’s no shame running third, pay off place and show as well.
      If dollars grew in diapers, it would redefine the smell.

      If dollars grew in diapers, then near a thousand there,
      Two thousand in that onesie, three in that underwear.
      So give to dear Osama, and give to Hillary,
      If dollars grew in diapers, children save some s— for me!
