MONEY CAN’T BUY ELECTORAL SUCCESS

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Democrats worry endlessly about the impact of conservative money on politics—never acknowledging that the majority of the top donors to campaigns, both from organizations and individuals, are liberals.

 In the last two presidential contests, Obama easily outspent his GOP rivals. Liberals also fail to acknowledge that spending money hardly guarantees a successful race. USA TODAY recently identified 159 candidates for the Senate and House since 2002 who spent more than a $1 million of their own money on their campaigns. The result? An astonishing 86% of these free-spending self-funders lost their races.

 In this election cycle, Democrat David Alameel in Texas has already invested $9.3 million in a bid to unseat Republican Senator John Cornyn, but no political observer gives him a chance to win.

 In life, as the old-saying goes, “money can’t buy happiness.” In politics, money can’t buy victory, either.

    Money doesn’t matter as the elections are preselected as to who is going to win.those who can’t or won’t see this even with proof don’t want to make their own decisions but wait to be told who to vote for,I call BS on oh you are throwing your vote away,your vote is already gone due to the higher ups like Michele who is part of the problem not the cure.
    Black box voting look it up if you don’t believe

    Money in politics only works if people let the media they ingest do the thinking for them instead of doing their own research.
