    They generally donate to whoever will best represent their interest (low regulations and taxes)! And Perry is their man!

    I'd say their decision is based on two things: 1) who will represent their interests, and 2) who they think has the best chance of winning.

    The citizens of Texas would have to be of some significance to the oil companies for that to occur, wouldn't they?

    And a voter that would give so much as thought of voting for a president who wanted to sacrifice public health to increase oil company profits should have his head examined.

    This should be fun.

    Public health and oil profits are related how?

    They could use it to make more jobs instead, since that is what this is all about. Maybe if companies and groups were donating less money to candidates and campaigns and parties, and rather using that money to hire more American workers and/or pay them better, perhaps the entire country could actually be doing better.
