re: #382 Scottish Dragon

Good question…but none of those we’ve had in the last one hundred years had anything like the kind of distorting wealth that Bloomberg (or the Kochs) have. None of them could feasibly buy an election. Bloomberg is the first in a very long time who has that kind of money to play with on a national scale…and that’s a real bad thing.

It’s a consequence of the money equals speech mindset that hurt campaign finance reform. We’re left with big names and big money. Not much room for others. Hate to say it but Obama 2020 may have had a more difficult time than Obama 2008.
