    As for elections, if ads and political spending are what shapes your vote, that's too bad - mine isn't shaped by anything other than what the candidate says regarding issues I care about and how they present themselves throughout the process.

    Or at least a local politician.

    Yep, only public unions should be able to do that.

    Now continue believing that. Nope- all for the good of the country.
    Perhaps Google States Attorney General and donations from corps. Eye opener.

    should have spent it on raises for workers, third world vaccination campaigns, and kickass classic cars.

    Pure delfection
    Why up till about 10 -15 years ago or so a Senator could retire and all funds raised, well they were able to keep that money for their own use. Nope- nothing here folks. All you have to do is turn your head to the side and pretend I did not see it, so I knew nothing.

    I don't think $900 million in an election buys you as much influence as a private jet ride to a Cayman Islands retreat or time in the owner's private box at the Super Bowl. But hey, that's just me.

    I truly hope you're being satirical.
