    DO YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE $3 TO THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION FUND?

    That's on your federal  income tax return.  What is it?  I'm told it's a fund of unknown source. Candidates can use the money to help pay for the campaign expenses.
    You have no choice as to WHO gets it nor for WHAT it is used.
    Anybody think this money could be better spent (besides me)?


    HOW?

    Not for me thanks.

    Never donate to anything without knowing who handles the $ and the break down of who gets the $.  Plus, this year charities and such will have to deal with NO $ from me...perhaps I can volunteer for them a bit?????

    Sounds like a song...where is Fishy?

    I'm thinking of having my own fund raiser thanks, at least here i'll know where the money goes , it will be on next years ballot !

    Not interested, can support there own campaign!

    No desire to. 

    No...not interested in that deal.

    Never put an X in that box, If they could divided it equally between the candidates and that would be all they would have, might be OK, but you know that would never work with one on the news as he pleases at tax payers expense.

    The money could be used for something else, something everybody agrees on like the school situation or land beautification................

    I never have done that and never will!

    I do not and I have never totally understood what it is-- I guess it pays for the utilities and the DNC and RNC -- I don't know where it goes.  That said, I will not give without an explanantion of where it goes- I'm sure a google search would explain it but then, it would probably make me feel so guilty that I would start checking the box, so I don't want to know.

    Comment:   That's one the most idiotic things the government ever dreamed up. 


    Better Spent, How:  Anything you can either drink or eat.  Even if it makes you throw up I'd rather that than throw money into the government abyss.
