The Million Dollar Question

Read the article please...

I think the author have set the right question.
Seems that politicians are totally obsessed with money, they forgot about american ideals, laws and their responsibilities... moreover they forgot about their conscience.
Clinton is a good example of it.
They serve only money and their PACs at the same time that politicians should serve the country and us.

More the reason for Trump to win. He don't need their bribe/lobby money. Why? He is really really rich. His words, not mine.

You have yet to explain how he's going to finance his campaign without money from influential lobbies. I've asked you in multiple threads and you always dodge.

He said he would finance his own campaign, as he seems to be doing. He said "I don't need their money, I am really really rich." Again, his words, not mine. He probably has more money then the lobby/bribers anyway.

How much of his own money do you think he will put into his campaign when all is said and done?

Obama raised $700+ million, so he's gonna have to put nearly a quarter of his net worth on the line to even have a shot at the throne. But don't worry, he'll do it, because unlike the other candidates, Donald Trump says it like it is.

You guys don't get it. Trump doesn't need money lok other candidates because his entire persona is literally free publicity. Trump went from nothing in the polls to a double digit front runner and hasn't ran a single ad. Turns out if you are an interesting person with actual convictions you don't have to spend hundreds of millions of dollars getting people to like you.

Long enough for a lot of things to change. November, 2016.
