2nd because of United vs FEC. Once those 5 Supreme Court Justices voted to state money=free speech, well no wonder the last 2 elections Both Presidential (2016) and midterm (201 were records broken
2018 midterm campaign projected to top $5B in spending, breaking records
As a result most of us don't know there were over 100 Republicans & Democrats combined with legit resumes running for president in 2020. But without money?
Just as with Reince Preibus who ran the RNC, & Debbie who ran the DNC, they had already chosen their candidate in 2016 for us- when the doors are close will they then tell us how we get these nominees:
Political parties, not voters, choose their presidential nominees, a Republican convention rules member told CNBC, a day after GOP front-runner Donald Trump rolled up more big primary victories.
“The media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That’s the conflict here,”
We choose the nominee, not the voters: Senior GOP official
Both parties are obsolete and have long been infiltrated by the money barons that bought our elections, our politicians, send out lobbyists funded alongside thinktanks to shape our policy. I get about 100 emails a day this past month from Trump organizations begging me to help that ho' azz wanna be billionaire get reelected-shit why cant he do like Bloomberg and actually fund his own damn campaign? End result- each election dating as far back as early 1900s have always had a two tier system, that presents the same policies to both parties-with different names.
Whether it be the privatization of our banks, followed by privatizing schools Everychild left behind, followed by Commoncore , to privatizing healthcare be it Romney or Obama to privatizing our military-where both parties have inundated the battlefields with private contractors- both are ok with us sending troops to Arabia for cash? We went from clunkers for cash to soldiers for cash?
“I said to Saudi Arabia...you're a very rich country. You want more troops? I'll send them to you, but you have to pay us. They've already deposited $1B 'in the bank.'
My point? All of these issues are all under the radar because both parties seem complicit in lets play Trump-The Twittering Twat today. Lets talk about his last tweet, so conservatives can call out how stupid it is to talk tweets...and 4 years of that.
No talk about both parties have raised our deficit on average a trillion for each budget. Both parties have no mission statement on the war on terror anymore,...we got to guess why Obama moved troops from one part to another, why Trump moved troops from one part to another.
And both parties really think Iran is just ok with us killing one of their own in..Iraq? And now Iraq voted to expel us-the nation who poured trillions of dollars into a bottomless sandpit. Sure there are candidates who talk about it- but without $? Without a conduit like the right's Alex Jones, Sean Hannity, Drudge Report, Stormfront, Synclair's 200 local television stations, OAN, Clear channel's 500 plus a.m. conservative talk radio...who will hear them?
Without the left's CNN, MSNBC, The View, late night tv hosts, Kimmell & crew and every other cackling-babbling-female daytime talk show or some comedian Chris Rock to mention that candidate....who will hear their message? It costs money to run for office.
Just ask Drumpf...he is so proud of the PAC money he raised...after he said he resented it...
And those who have answers? solutions? Different agenda? No way in hell will MSNBC, FOX, CNN, give a shot to someone willing to actually back up their campaign promises of limited terms. This clown in office sold us that too, whereas Dems wont even mention it.
Sorry to be so pessimistic, but after witnessing the same campaign promises for 3 close to 4 decades makes me a jacktail for thinking...well next time Democrat/Republican will put someone in office that has ideas/policies we need.
Show me a person who can make America great again and I will show you a person heading down the path of Lincoln, Garfield, Kennedy...pushing daisies via the same way- a lone nut with no affiliates.
Too much skill, experience on the part of the moneybarrons to just let some 4 time bankrupt-filing-habitual-lying-bible-prop-using fool to make a difference. And damn sure aint nothing logical about Dems always tryng to pick mofos to make history.
All this shit about time for a black man to lead, now its time for a woman to lead...if that is there vetting process...4 more for Drumpf coming right up! Give the Dems a shot in 2024...if we make it that far & they may tell us it is time for a sex-changed hermarphodite-transvestite's to lead. We will never be a unified nation until we accept then nominate a one-eyed-Mulatto midget with Parkinson's disease.
