Over 550 employees of Goldman Sachs contributed enough to one or more of the 2008 presidential candidates to show up on the Federal Election Commission’s data base — 388 contributed over $814,000 to Democrats while only 163 favored the GOP, dropping a more modest $258,000 into their coffers.REGISTERED DEMOCRATS WHO THINK THEY BELONG TO A PARTY FOR THE WORKING MAN SHOULD THINK TWICE BEFORE EVER VOTING FOR ANOTHER DEMOCRAT.
· At Lehman Brothers 310 employees voted Democratic with their contributions, to the tune of $642,000; meanwhile, 154 cut checks to Republicans totaling about $262,000.
· Nearly 500 Morgan Stanley employees sent over $834,000 to the Democrats while 247 of their colleagues deposited less than half that amount (under $400,000) in Republican campaign accounts.
· Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac employees favored the Democrats by a 6 to 1 margin, sending $220,000 to the Democrats and only $37,500 to the GOP.
The Democrats cleaned up in similarly spectacular fashion at other big banks and financial firms, including Bank of America, Bear Stearns, UBS, Wells Fargo, Barclay’s Capital, and Citibank/Citigroup. (Merrill Lynch employees were the sole exception to this rule.)
While these searches are limited (I only searched for the biggest and best known firms), they are nevertheless revealing. Over 3,550 employees of these firms voted for the Democrats with their pocketbooks, sending them over $5 million; fewer than half that number (1,620) sided with the Republicans, whose take was approximately $2.25 million.
DEMOCRATS ARE HE PARTY OF ELITES AND CRONY CAPITALISM.
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS THE PARTY OF UNION BOSSES AND ELITIST POLITBUROS.
A OLD JOKE ABOUT BREZHNEV WILL ILLUSTRATE THIS:
AFTER BECOMING PARTY CHAIRMAN LEONID BREZHNEV TOOK HIS OLD MOTHER ON A TOUR OF HIS HUGE APARTMENTS IN MOSCOW, AND SHOWED HER HIS OFFICE AND ART COLLECTION AND WINE CELLAR AND DROVE HER IN HIS CHAUFFEURED LIMOUSINE TO HIS GORGEOUS DACHA OUTSIDE MOSCOW.
HE ASKED HER, "SO WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOU LITTLE BOY LEONID, MAMA?"
SHE SAID, "IT'S GREAT LEONID. BUT WHAT IF THE REDS COME BACK!"
OBAMA AND THE CHICAGO MACHINE ARE JUST AS CORRUPT AND ALMOST AS RED.
WE CAN VOTE THEM ALL OUT THIS NOVEMBER.
