Trump has been a briber. He admits that when he donates money to a campaign, he expects something in return. Running for president is just cutting out the middle man.

I would not waste 15 seconds with either of them. I will not be watching the "great debate". I have far better thing to do with the time like trimming my toe nails, grooming my cats, watching my video tapes on the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, which I expect to see if Trump is elected. I do not have any bones to pick with Clinton, but for God/s sake, is there not any other slate of candidates that would reflect credit on the voters of the United States??

How do we get to this point in history? Are there not any voters who desire a shred of decency and civility??

We got to this point in history because of career politicians. They would rather pander to money than to the People. Members of Congress who hope to be there longer than one term spend a majority of their time fund-raising for themselves and their Party, or else they'll be black-balled and won't get support on their bills, etc. It's full of "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" mentality. Plus the lobbyists.

It's a big reason why Clinton isn't in jail right now because of her email server crap. Everyone is tied together by favors, money, etc, that if someone actually falls in this scandal, it might bring down a huge house of cards, and everyone is scrambling to prevent that from happening.

Luckily we have some based members of congress, like Jason Chaffetz, who are trying to get to the bottom of it.

Just how much graft did the Clinton Foundation rake in by selling access to the Secretary of State?

Ssssh, as long as too many people don't get involved, the dollars stay within a few established ranchers. You don't want a repeat of the emu boom and bust, do you?
