stands.

If HRC had a grassroots movement going, no doubt, we'd hear ALL ABOUT IT.

Bernie, however, does. His millions made in 3 days came from small donations.

You cannot argue big money is buying the election, on both sides, billions of dollars are set to be spent, while poverty and income inequality grows at staggering rates due to the corporate influence in gov't and politics. SCOTUS has enabled this, it is about Citizens United, and with TPP in the balance, TSIHTF.

You are trying to wash this abomination of power and influence away, simply by stating these are small donors who are simply employed by powerful vested interests, corporations. This is where we part ways.

If you are going to embrace a corporate candidate, at least acknowledge it. She is not being funded by tiny donations by the middle class and impoverished because they believe in her, heart and soul. She is being funded by big money, plain and simple. Hey, we could do worst, we could get a GOP'er, but at least we can both acknowledge where that money comes from, wouldn't you agree?

I know it is hard, but in this election, big money is buying the candidate, on BOTH sides. For some reason, it isn't Bernie, and that tells me all I need to know.

As for caps on donations, they no longer exist:

Supreme Court Strikes Cap on Political Donations



Decision, split 5-4, will allow individuals to donate as much as they want overall
