Political Contributions?

Since I’m poor I don’t really have a lot of disposable income but even if I did, I’m not sure I’d be willing to make a political contribution–even if I really loved a candidate.  I can’t help think but that money would be better spent on things that actually go towards something real.  I could easily take that $200 and instead of it going to pay for Barack’s assistant to get some donuts for the staff, it could more directly go to put food in the mouths of the hungry.  I realize that everything has administrative expenses but giving money to the rich, especially since I am not rich, just doesn’t strike me as something I’d ever really want to do.
