Disclaimers: We're listing each contribution, not each person. So someone who signed up to have a credit card billed every month for three months would be counted as three contributions.

Our figures may understate actual contributors if we didn't catch all the abbreviations. For instance, the same group is listed as "Motion Picture Assoc. of America," "Motion Picture Assn. of America," and "Motion Picture Association of America." Also, if someone chooses not to give an affiliation, we can't count it.

Lobbyists Are a Way of Political Life
It doesn't matter how many times someone says they won't accept lobbyist money for a campaign - the fact remains that lobbyists will always be around, directly or indirectly contributing money to a particular campaign.

Now in the interests of consumers AND businesses thriving and working well together to achieve a well-balanced technological goal, I'm all for the contributions; i.e. Open Document, etc.

When the contributors sole purpose is to appease the goals of just one side, however, that's when I start to question the lobbying effort; i.e. Microsoft.

But of course, this isn't just about standards and technology. This is about encompassing a balance between all parties involved for any stated goal brought to the front by consumers, environmentalists, business, etc. If there is no harmony in the end result, then it's safe to say there was never any harmony anywhere to begin with.

Interesting that MSFT supports Democrats
The last time we had a Democrat administration it threatened to break up Microsoft. Despite this it appears that some Microsoft employees still contribute to the Democratic party. Very strange.

Everyone upload some photos and let's see what we look like!

Ha-ha, that's a good one
Aside from Ron Paul who seem to get the majority of his contributions from individuals. I think he broke some kind of record, or close to it, November 5 receiving a bit over 4 million dollars in one day where the average contribution was $102/person. Now that's grass root support to boot.
