WTF??? and our State in 3Billion in the hole???

Why in the world should politicians be able to spend so much money on campaigns when our State is in a 3Billion budget shortfall? They should be raising money for our State so that we don't have employees and teachers getting laid off. You want to help employment Senator Burr and Ms. Marshall...well how about donating that Overwhelming support to the State you are running for and helping people keep their jobs. That would send a much stronger message that your silly commercials.

why does it involve to have

why does it involve to have the most money to win or even to run since we are all citizens of the usa and why do it cost money to run?? this is stupid since if a person runs all they gotta do is use their voice on what they beleive in to our citizens while u run instead of having money involved so use ur voice to voice out is free no charge to run!!!!! what happens if u lost then where do ur money go huh do u keep it or give it back to who sponsored or gave it to you??/ If i run id just go out speak to the people, do things from being a true candidate rather than earning any money to be a real politician instead of competing to win by money is no real politician!!!!
