How many billions does it take to buy the election?
Even if it was $10B, ($30/ citizen) that’s a bargain when that lets you drive a Trillion $ / year economy.

Bloomberg ads are the ONLY ones I mute every time they come on.

Ross Perot proved that all the money in the world won't buy one (1) electoral vote. Yes, money is necessary, but you need a good product.

In the year 2000, in the Republican primary to replace retiring 10th Congressional District Representative John Porter, Shawn Margaret Donnelley (heiress to the R.R. Donnelley & Sons fortune) spent at least 2.3 million dollars of her family's money to win 9,585 votes. Another candidate, Andrew Hochberg, spent $1 million of his own money for a solid 7,480 votes.

Mark Kirk, an aid to Porter, moved into the district less than 6 months before the March 2000 primary, and won with 19,717 votes. He spent way less than half a million dollars. Half a million dollars on a congressional primary is big money to be sure, but it is proof enough that there is a limit to what 2.3 million dollars can buy.

Edsels, New Coke, Waterworld, and Betamax, flopped despite the hundreds of millions spent to aggressively market those products. Susan B. Anthony dollars never became popular despite a massive push by the federal government (they even had Treasury employees on radio talk shows promoting Suzy Q quarters over those old easily torn Washingtons).

Bill Cosby (long before the fall) saying he likes the sweeter taste of New Coke couldn't make people buy it, but Hershey became a national institution even though it never advertised until 1970.

The most powerful corporation in the world cannot make customers spend their money on stuff they do not like.

You need a good product.

Short and to the point of Skolnick's long drawn out! Lots and lots of money!

Money is important when campaigning, but you have to have a message and platform that appeals to potential voters.

Hillary spent three times as much as Trump in the 2016 election.

It doesn't take much common sense for people to see through the lies that Bloomberg,Bernie,Pocahontas,and Biden spew out of their mouths on a daily basis. All anyone needs to do is look at any state that is run by the Liberal Democrat's,and see the doom & gloom that is in their future if any of these clowns get elected.

I firmly believe that a great majority of the American public has seen all the Socialist propaganda that the Lib's are pushing,and they will punish them at the ballot box come November 2020.

I hope that you are right, but from what I am seeing the sheeple are buying the lie. They hear it 27-7 and it's becoming a reality for them.
It was interesting to hear my sister-in-law last week. She is strongly anti-Trump. I asked her why. What has he done wrong? She had to think for a while and the best she could come up with was "He lies".
Wow, imagine; a politician that doesn't tell the truth! Never heard of such :facepalm:
Most of the others that I have encountered couldn't tell you why they hated Trump, but they just knew Trump was bad.

Well the Dems dumped alot of money in the Texas house race by me. They even had Beto Canvasing (and I quote the paper) "in the affluent areas". The Rep candidate who in my opinion wasnt the strongest candidate beat them by 16 points.
They were all hyped up about winning this seat calling it a bellweather election.  now that they lost they are really down playing it.

Bloomberg, obummer, and hiliary bought the pa Gov seat, along with voter fraud.
But he is a lame duck with R controlled everything else.
His re election hinged on legalizing pot. That's the only message he had.

The sad part was, no decent R s came forward to run against him, so he wont re election.
But as I said, he is a lame duck.
The house and legislature stopped him at every turn.
Sometime a lame duck is the best thing,
They cant hurt nothing.

Money can buy elections,  but you need a good message. Without a good message,, money almost does not matter.
Trump proved it.

Edit to add,,, the world seems to be getting really sick of the radical libtard dems. (Obviously not all dems are like that, and it seems the old school working class dems are also sick of them and their  hijacking of the dnc  party, ).
Look what happened to the liberal dems in England. They lost their azz in a big way. And they contine to loose. Look at Brexit.
The liberal dem party in England has been tossed out of their ear.
Scotland also just voted them all put of office.

Let's hope its contagious. 

It seems like it's starting to happen here. The working man, regardless of registration, is sick of their shit.

Their is a huge class of voter, where the old school dems and the old school repubs are really not very different.  We vote best man for the job, not party ticket.
The dnc with their radicals, nor the rnc,,  just dont seem to get that.
And we are still a force to be reckoned with.
At the end of the day,, it really does not matter which party we are registered to, because we vote both ways. Trump figured that out.

Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".
