"As bad as money corruption in politics is, there is a corruption that is far more dangerous and destructive, which is the corruption of principle, of morals, of the sense of the absolute religious obligation to fulfill the sacred oath of office to support and defend our constitutions."

Tom Hoefling 2012
The Tom Hoefling 2012 presidential campaign is revolutionizing the way we do politics in America.
We're creating a political process by which all candidates for public office, including Tom Hoefling, are held strictly accountable to the foundational principles of our country, to the Constitution of the United States, and to We the People.
We're not relying in any way on the so-called "mainstream" media. We're counting only on the citizen media, with its free access to the worldwide web, social media, email, and telephones.
We're not beholden to any money interests. Why? Because we are asking for NO DONATIONS. Instead, we're counting on a million patriotic Americans who are willing to run their own campaigns, in their own states, from their own front porches.
To find out how we are able to do this, please read "Tom Hoefling: I Don't Want Your Money."
Today Bloomberg published a story about the ridiculous burdens presidential candidates place themselves and their supporters under to run, and the sometimes decades-long money chase it leads to.
A short excerpt:
"Putting an end to a presidential campaign can be a nightmare that lasts years. There are employees, consultants, lawyers, and ad makers clamoring to be paid, ad buys to cancel, contracts and legal disputes to settle, office space, computers, phones, and furniture around the country to unload, and a staggering pile of disclosure forms and other paperwork to complete before the Federal Election Commission will certify that a campaign is officially over.”
Tom Hoefling 2012 has no "employees, consultants, lawyers, and ad makers clamoring to be paid."
We have no "ad buys to cancel," or "contracts and legal disputes to settle."
We have no "office space, computers, phones, and furniture around the country to unload."
Our FEC forms contain zeroes. There won't be any problem wrapping up our affairs when the election is over, no matter the outcome.
And, most importantly, our supporters won't be receiving fund-raising appeals from here to eternity.
Doesn't that sound revolutionary to you?

... Paul Singer, Dan Loeb and Cliff Asness — three hedge fund managers and major players in donor circles — each cut six-figure checks toward the landmark effort to legalize gay marriage in New York.
Singer, the intensely-private head of Elliott Associates, has been especially active in donating to groups aimed at legalizing gay marriage in different states over the last five years, concurrent with his rise as one of the Republican party’s mot prominent bundlers and donors to party committees. According to a recent New York Times story,Singer has donated $8 million to pro-gay marriage efforts since 2007.
He’s also helped raise more than $1 million for Romney’s campaign, as well as donated another $1 million to the super PAC supporting the all-but-assured Republican nominee.

The Weekly Standard
Access to the Obama White House is in direct correlation to the amount of money donated to the president's reelection effort and the Democratic party, the New York Times reports today.
The Times reports: "those who donated the most to Mr. Obama and the Democratic Party since he started running for president were far more likely to visit the White House than others. Among donors who gave $30,000 or less, about 20 percent visited the White House, according to a New York Times analysis that matched names in the visitor logs with donor records. But among those who donated $100,000 or more, the figure rises to about 75 percent. Approximately two-thirds of the president’s top fund-raisers in the 2008 campaign visited the White House at least once, some of them numerous times."
But the most explosive allegation in the news story comes from former Democratic congressman Patrick Kennedy, son of the late Ted Kenney, who calls what the Obama White House is doing "quid pro quo."
"Patrick J. Kennedy, the former representative from Rhode Island, who donated $35,800 to an Obama re-election fund last fall while seeking administration support for a nonprofit venture, said contributions were simply a part of “how this business works.”
“If you want to call it ‘quid pro quo,’ fine,” he said. “At the end of the day, I want to make sure I do my part.”"
