Buying election? Really?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by GP6971 (a host of the General Discussion forum).

We need to get money out of elections.

But I donít see a difference between a candidate using his/her own money or that of super PACs full of billionaires. Mike Bloomberg could have had a friend start a super PAC and kept it overflowing with mysterious donations. He straight up is paying for ads that help ALL Democrats because they are ALL against Trump.

Iím not a fan of Bloomberg since Biden is my first choice. But please stop with the money accusations! We WANT him to keep getting under Dumpís skin!

1. "money out of elections"

I don't see the difference when it is millions of small donations (taking money from the poorest )

we need to rethink the entire system

2. The billionaire in the race is self funding. The millionaires in the race are asking

millions of people who have five-figure incomes to fund their campaigns.
