Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Tue Jan 14, 2020, 07:53 AM

 

Has anyone asked the billionaire Democratic candidates what they will do with their

money if they win?
Will they use the office to enrich themselves as the current officeholder does?
Will they base foreign policy on protecting foreign personal assets?
Will they use the public dime for personal pleasure trips around the country every week?

1. Trump is not a billionaire.

 

Understanding that will open your eyes to the reason Trump is owned.

3. I do realize that, I'm just exploring the rich guy factor.

 

We have lots of rich people in congress and they are getting richer.
Are rich people owned or just corrupt ones?
Billionaires have holdings, millionaires have holdings. I have holdings.
Carter has a peanut farm did he make decisions based on the price of peanuts? Oh course not.
Would any candidate do that? Yes. I want to know. I want to know what you own and how it will affect your decisions.
I think being a billionaire President comes with baggage most people don't want to look in. But we have to or Dimwit is the result. So what will these candidates do with there money? I want to know.

6. Then you shouldn't have parlayed it into some strange attachment to Trump...

 

That doesnít flow from your original concern. Itís two different issues yet you made the Trump attachment anyway. Iíll ask you, why would Steyer or Bloomberg need to give other nations favor for money? The difference between them and Trump is huge when talking about your concern.

8. I really don't know these billionaires

 

I have questions.
How can dimwit not be apart of my original post, he is the example.
He is the concern. I don't want another super rich motherfucker stealing from us.

2. Mike

 

is spending a cool billion to help beat Trump. What are you doing? Not all wealthy folks are bad. What terrible stereotype to place on another human being.

9. By asking this question of our candidates we are also asking it of

 

dimwit
All our candidates need to disclose, once again pointing to dimwit's nondisclosure. Point to his decision making based on himself not the what is best for the country. From there you can easily point to the leading rethugs not putting the Constitution first with a shame trial.
