      If the above figures are correct, Billary has 25 TIMES the cash on hand for her campaign than Mr. Trump yet as of this moment he has a 17-point lead in the polls.

      There is no substitute for character.

      Proving yet again that the fallacy of a free and fair election in the USA is a pipe dream!How can any indipendant stand for any level of office when the amounts spent by the administration's candidates is so enormous?There is no hope for this discredited system and the USA should stop touting it as an example of Democracy.If this is the example they hold up,no wonder most sane people around the globe reject it.Only by being a poodle of business,the military/industrial complex et al can one even hope to have a chance of being elected.

      It's hilarious for Clinton to warn her voters that Trump is the one who may try to buy the election with special interest money. The numbers speak for themselves.
