The old adage of follow the money. Since 1960 the presidential candidate with the most money won with two exceptions. 1964 where Goldwater outspent LBJ 20-18 million and in 2016 when Hillary outspent Trump 1.191 billion to 646.8 million.

14 billion was spent on 2020 elections, not counting the two Georgia runoffs in January 2021.

We voters are just a necessary evil in this political game, pawns to be moved around the chess board. These moneyed elites are very good at making us think we decide elections, we have a say, that we can make a difference. Baloney,

I know the moneyed elites control our election process and usually the outcomes. But I like everyone else continue to operate like I don't.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
