To view more Romney ads, go to his channel on youtube.

Just this week, according to The Huffington Post:

The disparity, with Republicans spending $41.7 million and Democrats spending $23.5 million, illustrates a strategic gamble on behalf of the GOP presidential nominee to bury President Barack Obama and burn past him during the closing weeks of the campaign.

1. Romney campaign: $17.7 million
2. Obama campaign: $16.5 million
3. The Karl Rove-started American Crossroads: $7 million
4. The Romney supporting super-PAC Restore Our Future: $6 million
5. The Obama supporting super-PAC Priorities USA: $4.2 million
6. The National Rifle Association: $1.3 million
7. The conservative American Future Fund: $400k

What will turn the tide, and make the difference for Obama? Two more debates, youth turn out, female turn out, and continued domination of small internet donations.

Don’t want to “just” donate? Like me, you can “shop.”

    You don't have to be a liberal to be a yogi.

    I just went to your site for the first time, and was very surprised and disappointed that you were so outspoken about politics. I thought that you were trying to promote yoga and and helping people come together. Instead you were promoting Obama, and being extremely negative about the half of us who are conservative thinkers. I was seriously considering becoming a sponsor of the elephant journal, but promoting your political views was a total turn off for me. Do you think promoting a politician, and political party is the way to bring people together to create an enlightened society. WOW

  3. […] like Karl Rove and those two hideous Koch brothers were feeling on that fine November morn. They spent several fortunes trying to unseat this president and they couldn’t do […]
