They say money makes the world go around and this is completely accurate. Money is the root of all evil. When you’re young you do not think that way. I guess that would depend on what kind of home you grew up in. Either way, you don’t have to worry about much when you’re a kid. As a child, your parents take care of things and you are oblivious to the problems they go through, for the most part.
The older you get the more your perspective on life can change. You begin to learn by trial and error just how important money really is. In Washington it means everything. The politicians have their hands out and the lobbyists are eager to get their ear.
Looking at the current Presidental election, it is clear who the big money players are. Everywhere you look you see Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which media outlets are bought and paid for by campaign money.
If you look at history whoever puts the most money into their campaign is usually the winner. This is not always true although it is normal for top spenders to win. If this election is anything like the past Hillary is on top with Jeb Bush coming in close second. Top Campaign Spenders Open Secrets
Donald Trump is not even in the top three for campaign funds. That being said his mouth has helped him out tremendously. His money has helped as well if he was broke no one would listen to him. He reminds me of a drunken homeless person just saying whatever he can to get people to listen.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.” -Donald Trump
So Trump is assuming some immigrants are good people, let’s hope his wife can get her English down if he does become President. The fact that he seems dead set against immigration is pretty humorous since ever wife he’s ever had has not been an American Citizen.
In second place is Jeb Bush, this is not shocking at all. The Bush family will do whatever they can to keep the power they once had. Don’t get me wrong they are still an extremely powerful family dating all the way back to 1825 in the United States. The family was one of the first in the Railroad industry and Wall Street. The Bush family has stepped on anyone to get to where they are. They will stop at nothing to get Jeb into the primaries. All the money in the world can not fix what George W. Bush did to this country. I’m quite sure even the Republicans do not want another Bush in office. They do however make excellent puppets for the Republicans with half a brain.
Topping the money in the election is Hillary Clinton. Unlike the Bush family Bill and Hillary made their own money. Clinton has a strong backing from the Democratic National Committee. It is clear based on Television stations such as MSNBC that they clearly back her as well. It would be nice to see how much money the family has contributed to NBC. In several articles it states NBC and it’s affiliate’s fundraising for Hillary. That is all well and good. The problem is the money, just because she has money does not make her Presidential material. Money can buy many things hopefully it doesn’t buy her the primary.
Money buys anything in this country. If you kill someone, but have enough money you can walk. Does that sound like justice? Just recently a teenager decided to get drunk and get behind the wheel. He killed four people but did not serve jail time because he has “affluenza” a psychological malaise supposedly affecting wealthy young people, symptoms of which include a lack of motivation, feelings of guilt, and a sense of isolation. This is the reason this teen got off free because the poor kid was too wealthy and didn’t know any better. What is this country coming to? This is not justice. What about the families of the 4 people he killed? Do they not count for anything? I would love to see how much money this teens Dad passed out to get him off almost free of any charges.
This is not the only recent instance look at Bruce Jenner, a former Olympic Gold medalist and current step-father and father of attention whore gypsies. Almost the same thing except it wasn’t called affluenza. Jenner got behind the wheel and killed a woman. The prosecutor had said at minimal Bruce would get manslaughter charges, yet no charges came what-so-ever. The family of the 65-year-old woman that was killed filed a lawsuit against Jenner, it was settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. Bruce was at fault for this accident, he crashed into the back of her car, yet he walks. This is just another case of money prevailing over justice.
Look at religion in the past and in recent times. I was raised Catholic, married in a Catholic Church, and my children have all been baptized Catholic. If you speak with a Preist and let him know you are planning to marry, this is the process you will go through. He will want to counsel you, taking a marriage class is mandatory (that normally has a cost), and he will ask for a specific fee to marry you. OK so now you’re married you paid your fee, you go to church every Sunday and put money in the collection plate. You have a baby next. You go to the Preist and say that you would like to baptize your child. Again, the priest will ask for a specific amount of money to do this service. Let’s say your spouse dies. You go to church and tell the Preist you would like him to perform the service for your departed husband, again a specific fee will be involved. I find this absolutely repulsive, how a church can scam people like that is ridiculous. You do not need to pay money to get right with God or to pray. The Catholic church has 8 billion in assets, I’m quite sure they do not need more money.
Money can buy you everything in this country, it’s sad but true. No matter how wealthy you are, remember one thing you can not do is buy class. It’s far too apparent in recent times. One day I hope this changes if it does not you better make that money. Seems not having money in this country and making a slight mistake can land you in jail for a very long time. Maybe one day this will change. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like this will happen in the near future.
