It's about us and the things we think and do. It's about our future and the things that are shaping it. It's a bit about politics, a bit about religion, a dash of science, and a pinch of us.

Mitt Romney: Santorum donor
Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum may be trading licks as the battle for the GOP nomination rages on, but the two weren’t always at odds. The above screenshot of a filing from the Federal Election Commission shows Romney donated the maximum $4,200 to Santorum’s failed Senate re-election campaign in 2006. 
As iWatch News previously reported, Romney’s “Commonwealth PAC” also sent Santorum a $10,000 donation that same year. Such contributions are often given to try and curry favor ahead of future electoral campaigns. Santorum threw his support behind Romney’s presidential bid in 2008 — an endorsement he has since tried to walk back.

AWESOME.

Wall Street blows all other political donors away: During the 2008 election cycle, when the finance sector accounted for nearly 30 percent of all US business profits, its top donors gave $328 million, outspending their closest competitors—lawyers—by more than $200 million.

Well, I guess we’ll be electing Wall St. for our next president.
