McCain SPEECH

The next President of the United States?

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2008/02/19/sot.mccain.columbus.entire.cnn

HIGHLIGHTS FROM McCain SPEECH:

Age factor: "I'm not the youngest candidate, but I'm the most experienced. "

Obama: "I'll make sure Americans are not deceived by an eloquent but empty call for
change that promises no more than a return to false promises and a tired
philosophy.. . America cannot risk the confused leadership of an inexperienced
candidate."

Radical Islamic Extremism: "The most important obligation of the next President is
to protect Americans from the threat posed by violent extremists who despise us,
our values, and modernity itself. They are moral monsters. But they are also a
disciplined, dedicated movement driven by an apocalyptic zeal that celebrates
murder... and are determined to acquire and use weapons of mass destruction against
us."
-----------------------------

FRIGHTENING MENTALITY...How do you think he will make sure that Obama is effectively stopped?...Still talking of weapons of mass destruction....Has he been medically (mentally) checked lately?

I'm not well versed in the rules regarding how much candidates are allowed to spend on campaigns. I am assuming there is no limit. If this is the case, then I don't think it is a sensible idea. What about an alternative. eg

From donations received by a party, all candidates should be given the same amount . . . call it a campaign budget.Each party should allocate the same amounts to their candidates as each other. That way all parties/candidates are on a financial level playing field.

The way the budget is spent should be open to public scrutiny. This should help the public decide who uses their budget most effectively and will focus a candidate's mind on real issues rather than spin.

Once a presidential candidate has been chosen from each party then a further fixed amount campaign budget is allocated.

Air time should be given in equal amounts too.

Perhaps general collection boxes could be in use at all rallies and conventions during campaigns . . .all money to go to a charity fund. Charities can apply to the fund for money for special projects.

What appears to be a 'spin to win' attitude is such a waste of money and doesn't always create public confidence.


These are simply my thoughts.

You have some good ideas peacetrain....the amount of money spent in US campaigns is obscene to say the lease. It's the public air waves they use that are leased to corporations who then sell them to candidates to inform the public of their policies....

IMHO they should all be given exactly the same amount of resources and go with it. That way money could be used on other things, like education, health care, poverty issues.
It's a big issue here in the USA...

Such a waste of money. Is there a chance of a 'poor' man or woman making it to the White House?
