Campaign Donations – the price of everything
Freedom Outpost - Cheryl Pass – 11/7/2013
The same article explains that the coal industry also donated to McAuliffe, but didn't contribute anywhere near the huge amounts that the environmentalists did. As you know, the coal industry is being decimated by the leftists in elected and unelected positions. I would guess that the coal industry doesn't have the disposable funds to play this game anymore. Whether or not you agree that fossil fuels are evil, you would have to conclude that the fossil fuel industries have afforded us all a great life of prosperity AND that America has the cleanest energy industry on the planet. Your energy rates and costs keep going up and up in your house. You also know that wind, solar, and biofuels are not going to provide anything close to the energy needs we have or will have in the future....And that they are more expensive alternatives. You also have to know that environmentalist groups who are pushing the hoax of global warming / climate change are not interested in your energy security.
Lest you think I am raining on the environmentalists only, no I am not. Corporations are doing the same thing; pouring buckets of money into campaigns. Some do it through the Chamber of Commerce. Some do it through the US Green Building Council. Some just do it directly. Pay to play.
The point I am trying to make is that the price of your cup of coffee, your gallon of gasoline, your house, your light bulbs, your everything, is paying to elect people who have no interest at all in the free market system, but have every interest in picking your pocket. You see, these campaign contributions aren't manifested out of thin air. They come from you when you purchase something....and then you wonder why the price of everything is going through the roof. You are paying to elect people who don't care if your standard of living goes into the basement as long as they get their piece of your pie.
All of this Fed printing isn't going into your pocket as I'm sure you noticed, but it is going somewhere. I think a large part of it is going straight back to those who are shoveling it as fast as they can into the pockets of government legislators. In the meantime, inflation is rolling right along. Too many dollars in chase of too few goods. So all of this money is not going into production of needed goods. You pay more for the goods you need, and the politicians are laughing all the way to the bank.
