  1. IMO, this is SO WRONG! Elections should never be based on how much money a candidate receives. But of course, this IS the way it is. And what’s even more frustrating is the people who pay attention to all the (well-financed) propaganda are usually people who don’t pay attention to anything that’s been going on for the months leading up to the election! So they swallow it all — hook, line, and sinker … which are all made from GOLD!

    1. Hello Nan. I agree. But out politicians are bought now, well most of them. And wait until I post the thing I just learned about a Republican working with the Russian intel agency to get opposition research on his Democratic opponent. Here is the link if you want to read it before I can post again. I have to leave in 6 minutes and won’t be able to post until my eyes can handle the screens.

      1. Taub admitted wrongdoing …

        It seems so long as a person says “Sorry … I goofed,” all is forgiven. Yes, he did have to serve some time, but IMO, the punishment was far short of the crime.

        1. Hello Nan. Yet the Russian connection to the 2016 election was all a hoax. It was a witch hunt. Russia never interfered according to the top Republican leaders. Yet here is someone who went to jail for doing it. This evening I had a guy tell me online that only Democrats have been caught illegally voting and as proof he claimed with no citation that some people in Texas had their party registration changed. I pointed out what happened in Florida and some other states that are charging Republicans for trying to vote illegally the person refused to accept it. I was a lib idiot, I was lying, I was … anything but correct. I just stopped answering him and his replies became just insults after insults. He thinks that means he won the argument, but I don’t care because people reading along can see my points and his reactions. How these people function in a normal society I cannot figure out.
