For over half a century now big time capitalists have tried to remain hidden behind the corrupt politicians they use as masks to hide them selves from the public. The only difference now is that they are just doing away with the middle man. Trump is not the first, he is just the first to have the savvy to con the masses face to face. He won't be the last.

By Election 2032, We will be given a choice to vote for the CEO of This Corporation and That Corporation.
Or maybe each four years we will vote on Which Corporation to just had over all controls to. The Board of Directors of the winning Corporation will serve as the Cabinet

We look at this picture and think its funny, but anyone who doesnt fear and respect a bird like that is a fool.
As a child, I found a very large red tailed hawk outside my front gate. He was ill and standing under a shrub. I herded him into my backyard for his safety and just to have him. I named him Kermit. I went to pet him on the chest once and his talon flew up like grease lightning and caught my hand and held it for several seconds, all while looking me straight in the eye. That bird could have messed me up, but chose only to warn me. He stayed in my yard for a few days, and I hurried home from school each day to see him. One foggy morning he took off and was gone. The next day there was a large picture of him on the front page of the newspaper and it made the headlines. He had flown into and got tangled in the power lines a block from my house, and firemen saved him. Everyone was talking about it at school. Only my parents and I knew that this was my buddy who lived in my yard. The eagle in the pic with trump is smaller then Kermit was, but I dont blame him for ducking. They can shread you f they choose

So you don't find it all disturbing that one of his fundamental positions, him not taking money from any special interest, is now no longer the case?

Crazy how right he was when he said it doesn't matter what he says or does, his followers don't care.

When you take donations those people own you. I'm self funding

Billionaire Republican donor Sheldon Adelson is reportedly willing to give Donald Trump as much as $100 million for his presidential campaign -- a purported record-setting amount for the wealth casino magnate.


And what does Sheldon Adelson get for his $100 million?

Some law passed or vetoed down the road most likely.

Don't worry he's going to build that wall. Oh wait no. Well he's gonna ban terrorist Muslims...oh well that was just a suggestion.
But it's gonna be great. You know what it is he thinks will make America great again? Him being president. Simply that.
He says he's evolving.
When I was evolving like that at 16 my mother called me fickle.

What happened at 16 to get you to stop evolving?


Trump at least would never do this enemy like, and treason filled action to America like Obama:
Obama killing economy

Trump did fund his own campaign through the primaries.

That's quite different than an expectation he fund the entire republican party against the democratic party in the general election. It's no longer about Trump the individual. It's about the party.

Or is the expectation Trump is supposed to cover the tab for the entire party in addition to his primary campaign?

The money coming in now isn't to pay off Trump and attempt to put him in place as the GOP nominee. That's where much of the corruption would come. The money coming in now is meant to ensure the party beats the democrats and ensuring the right gets control over the next 3-5 Supreme Court nominees which will impact this nation at large for the next couple decades.

Well since that is what he said, yeah...
His own point is that taking these large sums of money from people puts you in their pocket later on.

Uhh what?? Is your point that we are past any chance of special interest corruption?
Yeah because they don't want their hands on the president at all! You are right, this money is to make sure he wins, so that they can come to him later and remind him who helped him get there.

Thank you for that ! It is really concerning just how many people do not understand how the USA elects a new POTUS but will make up stories to fit their own bias.

Trump did self-fund.

Cruz raised $140.5 million during his primary run. Kasich raised $42.1 million. Bush did even better: $162 million. Trump raised $51.4 million, primarily from his own pocket. The others raised funds almost exclusively from donors.

The Democrats made the Republicans look like paupers. Bernie raised $185.9 million, while Clinton tops the list at $262.7 million. Neither contributed their own money to any great degree.

Running a campaign takes a lot of money, and this cycle is setting records already for dollars spent. Now that Trump is set to become the Republican candidate, he's using the funds available to conduct a campaign. These funds are going to the party, not to Trump. I have also not seen any comments to date that indicate he will not still be using his own funds as well.

Every time I see comments like I have seen so far in this thread, I become more convinced that Donald J. Trump will be the next President of the United States of America. There is this thing called "common sense" that the majority of voters have, and twisted words on misrepresented issues are showing that majority what the real problem is: political correctness and political spin. The voters were fooled into believing the spins and sound bytes for a while, but the degree of twisted misinformation in this campaign seems to have woken them up to how inaccurate allegations can be. Every time his lack of information on foreign affairs is questioned, a dozen attempts are made to show that he's 'racist.' Every time his tendency to speak before putting his brain in gear is pointed out, a dozen allegations that he didn't self-fund are mentioned. The BS allegations completely bury the real issues, and everything slides off Trump like he's made of Teflon.

Someone recently suggested I do a little writing. I think a great subject would be the tendency of humans to discredit themselves when attempting to make a point.

Figures quoted above as as of April 20, 2016 are are obtained from www.nytimes.com...

You're confused about the separation of an individual primary campaign, which he did self fund, and where he is now, where it's about the party at large defeating the dems.

This has nothing to do with individual campaigns anymore or planting "your guy" in the white house. It has everything to do with keeping Hillary or Bernie out of the white house. Trump doesn't have to cater to anyone. He holds the power. Throw in your money or give up both the white house and the next 3-5 Supreme Court nominees.

I am not confused about it, I just won't use that justification.

What ever way you spell it, it is still him getting contributions from special interest. If you guys think we are past any corruption then that is pretty naive. You willing to say the same thing about the DNC?



Trump doesn't have to cater to anyone. He holds the power

He still needs the help to get to the white house, so he will have to cater and beholden to people that pay his way. Those have been his own words, that the special interest pay their guys way so they can help them out later.

No.

It's not him. It's the party.

And the DNC is different as special interests funded their candidates all along, handpicked to get to the white house. Same as the entire rest of the GOP field outside Trump.

And he is part of the party! So he is going to be part of it, not sure what is so hard about that.

Of course the DNC is different tho, can't let that part get in the way!
Their donations are all part of the corruption, Trump's is just him fighting it!


This idea that the special interest stop caring once they get the nomination is hilarious. That is when the real funding starts! They use the buckshot approach to get someone they want, and then really ramp it up when they know who it is.

Why does he need the help to fund against the DNC? How many times has he told us he is worth over 10 billion??

You brought up the DNC, not me.

I clearly stated all candidates on both sides outside Trump were different as they were funded by special interests from the jump.

And what's so hard about understanding it's now about the party rather than the individual previously during the primaries? He self funded against individuals in the primaries, as an individual. This is no longer about individuals. It's about parties.

I know I did, because I wanted to see if you would apply this same logic to the DNC, that it isn't about the individual but the party.

What ever, if you really believe that this doesn't show the willingness of Trump to work with special interest then what ever floats your boat.
The special interest can focus their cash flow on one person now, why do you think so much more money gets dumped in once we get the nominees?
Why does he need the help to fund against the DNC? How many times has he told us he is worth over 10 billion??
Gonna ask that again, seems to be going unanswered.

Trump did self-fund.


You bought that hook line and sinker.



FactCheck.org disputes Trump’s claims, pointing out that his 2015 year-end filing in January shows $19.4 million in campaign income, with $12.6 million of that coming in via candidate loans. Thus, approximately one-third of his campaign funds have arrived via donations. The year-end filing shows $1.6 million in itemized individual contributions and another $4.9 million in unitemized ones.

It is also important to remember that as the bulk of Trump’s campaign contribution is in loans instead of donations, link
