38. Maybe because money can't buy people or an election.

Everybody keeps trying to do that and it fails on large scales. In this election, we have witnessed this on a scale never before seen in history. The only thing it promotes is business, not votes.

In some ways you make a lot of sense, but there are some people who don't do things like a banker. OK, if you only have one choice, your way is probably the right bet. But chipping away at the fringe has worked for hundreds of years and in many a revolution. I wouldn't underestimate people.

" only then should you go after the people that are just not that into you. "
Maybe that's why America is totally polarized. The gap is huge.

Financial feasibility is not on the table; of course it wouldn't be a good financial investment. As far as bank rolling... it doesn't take that much to go rogue. On the other hand, there are a lot of people who want to do something more with their money than just make money. They just might buy air space for a cause and make it legal.
