In your essay did you ever think to include how it help stimulate the economy in the present time.
If you look at the vast amount of money these candidates are getting from donors, it has to be impacting the economy in a good way IMO.
They are spending on advertisement, conventions, employees, flights, gas, hotels, and many other things.
In addition they are drawing huge crowds that are also spending money on drinks, cameras, food, gas, etc...
Furthermore, the media is also investing in the economy by covering these events spending money in similar fashion as above.
I think the election is good for our present economy.
Just a thought.
