The billionaires bankrolled Barry, the slugs provided the votes. What do billionaires and welfare queens have in commom? Neither has to work for a living.
The intersting thing is that leftie billionaires like Gates or Buffet are treated like saints in the media, while the Kochs and Waltons are cast as pariahs.
There is nothing about anyone promoting a political philosophy, regardless of the size of their bank account. The one thing I object to is political groups having tax exempt status or receiving gubmint grants for any purpose See ACORN or Planned Parenthood.
