  1. Of course they do, why does anyone spend money on anything? When you buy things at the store are you doing it for the good of all mankind?? Good grief!

    • Believe it or not, some people do actually donate money or volunteer time to causes to support the greater good.
      But the point is, when you see an ad about Solyndra, abortion, religion, or gun rights, and at the very end in small print / fast speech it says “paid for by (Restore Our Future or American Crossroads)”, you need to understand the real motivation of the few billionaires that paid for it. The ads do not reflect the end game of the funders. The ads don’t say “support the repeal of nuclear waste dumping regulations” or “support the weakening of worker’s rights”.
