None of people you keep mentioning are major league election influencers. None of them could singularly effect the outcome of a national election or issue. They were all light-weights in comparison. The list was unimpressive. Even Lewis, though a billionaire, was minor billionaire (worth $1.5B). I was trying understand what point you were trying to make and what I was missing. You kept trying to compare these people to Adelson..... his singular net worth is vastly greater than the combined net worth of this alliance.
Again, I found the whole line of reasoning here a complete side bar and not relevant to the topic at hand. You were talking about a rich boys club that yielded political power as a co-op (not a big deal as there plenty of those on both sides of the aisle). I was interested (as was the subject of the thread) in SINGLE individuals capable of influencing national elections (because of financial wherewithal and willingness to spend money). It seems to me that list, right now, is comprised of the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson, George Soros and Michael Bloomberg; each are mega-billionaires and very politically active.
