 Yes in it's desperation to raise as much money as possible, to once again fool as many people as possible, the Obama campaign has rolled out campaign workers with........get this...........credit card readers in order to take donations. WOW! Now for some this may seem smart. I guess it is if you want to rack up debt in order to hire someone to...........rack up debt. Yeah I guess that makes sense. Makes me wonder if they will begin accepting SNAP cards (no doubt)? To read about it check it out at politico under politico44 "Obama campaign rolls out Square mobile fundraising platform". I would provide a link but alas we are limited in here.

Credit cards are the modern day cash.  I rarely have cash with me. Any donations that I have made to candidates has been in the form of credit card payment.  Think of it another way:  The Obama campaign is focusing on entrepreneurship; capitalism; the marketplace.  All good values, right?

It would be great if Obama was focusing on IMPROVING those items. Unfortunately he isn't. He wants to use them to gather funds as those items are the best way to make money, just not what he wants YOU to do. His policies are to punish anyone that makes money unless they are willing to give it to the government so HE can give it to those that will keep him in power. Very sad but true.


I was just given a list of ALL the Czars that he has appointed along with their names and political ideals and backgrounds and it is amazing and horrifying for these people to have so much power in areas they know nothing about. I think I may post them a few at a time later on here.

Should this really come as any surprise to anyone? Every candidate, and I mean EVERY candidate has people going out and seeking donations for their campaigns. This is nothing new. It shouldn't matter if the person is a democrat or a rebublican, its the way elections work. Each person wants to out spend the other one. Here's a thought...if you don't want to donate to any particullar campaign, then DON'T!!!

I'm casting my vote for Millard Fillmore, he may be long dead, but at least he can't screw up the country any worse than the current crop of candidates hoping to occupy the Oval Office following the upcoming election season.

Y'all are all posting great answers. Some are saying so what. The gist of this information is Obama is sending out his campaign workers with credit card swipers ON THEIR SMARTPHONES. Anyone rememberdoor to door encyclopedia and vacuum salesmen? In my mind it's much akin to that. Talk the product up, make it sound good, take all your money, once product received........disappointment.

We have had three years of the current "Encyclopedia Salesman" and it is more than obvious that his initial sales pitch and promises have not been delivered to the American people.  As with any other form of salesman, if I think that he is selling me a worthless "bill of goods" then I will be certain to look for a new salesman as soon as I can.  The problem with the current crop of prospective replacements is that they all appear to be slick and slimy used car salemen with a lot of  flash and noise and no real substance IMHO.

In this regard, let me ask this question, considering the microscopic examinations that all candidates must go through why would anyone put themselves through it? (yes I know there are things that were never asked about the current 'encyclopedia salesman' but that discussion can wait)  


If you wonder why we don't get the best abd brightest anymnore that is one reason, the other is that is costs way too much for the average person to even think about it.

 I may be just thinking way out there in "hollywood" but what if someone were to swipe a card (kind of like a hotel card) that takes the information of 1. the other accounts that have donated to the cause and/or 2. takes the infromation of the account this money is going to.  Instead of helping out a campaign, someone might be looking to retire on their own private island.


But then again I could just be thinking like a bad guy in the next crime movie.
