Obama has been publicly disclosing information about his bundlers since the campaign began, and Romney disclosed his bundlers during his 2008 bid. But this time around, his network of fundraisers remains in the shadows.

Regardless of where Romney's funds come from, it should be abundantly clear from looking at both Obama and Romney's contributions that they are both tools of the corporate elite. Politica at the higher levels are a cruel joke and have been for decades now. Smoke and mirrors and word games played by skunks of different colored stripes where no one represents "we the people".

Should I also point out that Obama has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide much of his past, no matter how "open" he may have been on campaign contributions?

I shudder to think of another 4 years of Obama, but I am not sure that I don't shudder as much or more to think of flip-flopping Mitt Romney, who will be even more beholden to special interests and even more supportive of increased militarism.

We are truly farkled!

Obama already sold out and you will see that when he approves the northern section of the XL pipeline, if reelected and I think that he should win,but, he lost the youth vote that carried him in 2008. A Mitt-Ryan election would be a total disaster to the Environment, the U.S. and the World, besides Americans can't afford the money needed for the Secret Service to protect all of Mitt's family

The whole world cares who is likely to be running the White House and making (or, rather, carrying out) decisions which inevitably impact upon the entire human race yet I, as a UK citizen, am not permitted to add my name to the petition. There is a planet beyond your shores, USA, and the other 96% of us live there!

To Tony Isaacs - I think you have just claified the delema for many of the independents. Why does every elections come down to the choice of two evils. Why is there no voice for the American People that they both seem to claim that they speak for. If what they say is true, then why is there such a problem with transparency on both sides of the isle? No Romney won't release his tax returns, last time it was Obama's birth certidicate. What gives? It won't be until there is a true third party independent that is exactly who they say they are, and not afraid to unmask themselves will we have a true voice that we can get behind with all confidence that they are not just a puppet for special interest, foriegn intervention or corporate power. How did elections come to such a state? I blame the Supreme Court; why aren't they doing THEIR job by protecting the constitution and American elections? It seems they are just as partison as everyone else!

Thank you for signing our petition asking Mitt Romney to name his bundlers. Now for the next step: Just as bundlers work their networks of contacts, we're asking you to pass this on to your friends, families and anyone else in your own circles of influence. Tell them about this crucial issue and ask them to sign as well. Send them a link or use one of the share buttons below to let others know you signed and ask them to join you!

I signed but don't hold out too much hope considering Mittens has an obvious aversion to truth, disclosure and common sense. I suppose he can't help it, he's a conservative after all. Thanks Dandelion.

This would be a fair demand if Obama were equally open. For instance, how much taxpayer money has gone to Michelle and daughters vacations and trips and how much to Obama's fund raising and campaign trips??? When these people move, the Secret Service has to launch a tremendous support tail that you and I pay for. I believe it has been greatly abused in the last four years. I'd actually like to think that George Sorros or one of the deep pockets is paying for it but am not that naive.

This is a finely tuned Petition John G., about the major fundraisers only for this election campaign. All Presidents have had the Secret Service, taken vacations, so on and so forth, and we can debate if some Presidents abused this more than others. I place this on here just for what it is, a Petition to address this one issue, a small slice of all that is going on. I personally think all monies should be taken out of the elections. I think all viable Candidates should be given only 6 months to clearly state their platforms, each be given the exact same amount of air time, print, and let it go at that. Anyone found buying additional air or print would be disqualified from the election that cycle, simple done. That would clear things up real fast and get the American people back some of their voice.

I don't feel like Romney should disclose anything until obama releases a "real" birth certificate..
 

Dandelion G. (374)
Friday August 17, 2012, 12:52 pm
Oh please Scarlett, are you going to keep beating that poor dead horse. He DID release his birth certificate, like how many times would you and others like yourself like him to release it? It was verified by the Governor of Hawaii as being authentic. In 2009, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, verified that Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born citizen. Why can't you "birthers" move on?

If you have some relevant discussion I'll listen, but not to that crap. In the meantime this is a petition, you either sign it or you don't. It had not a thing to do with Obama's place of birth. Between the birthers and the bash all the muslims on C2, one could pull their hair out at times. You do not serve your Country well by bringing up this stupid nonsense.

We cannot stop the fundraising by the richest in our country. But I protest by not watching any Ads at all. We can always make them waste their money. I'm going to vote straight democratic party on the platform they put out there and that I hope they will follow through with. We need to help people like Senator Bernie Sanders who works diligently for the people and not just for the wealthy.

Until people like Romney reveal who are backing them financially, I certainly wouldn't trust them with the governing of my country!

True Jeremy, what people don't realize is that foreign entities could be backing him. That could mean even China if they got in bed with him for some Corporate deals, which don't necessary translate into better working conditions for the laborers of China nor jobs for those in the USA.
