ThidBarker - A question for you. Who was the last President to oversee a
balancing of the federal budget?Let me give you a clue. It
wasn't a Republican.
That's still less than Donald Trump owes in debts...
I'm sure our flood victims could use some of that money, or from the
foundation.Isn't Hillary kind and compassionate?
If the circumstances were switched,I think I know what the GOP would call it -
Freedom of Speech.
Hey Thid Barker -" More proof that she lies and can't be
trusted! "Compared to Trump?? Ha!Trump
PROMISED to completely self-fund his campaign, and take NO money from
ANYBODY.Chalk up just one more HUGE lie for the Trump camp.The guy lies practically every time he opens his mouth. He can't even
agree with himself. He essentially calls HIMSELF a liar on a regular basis.He pretty much mirrors the confusion of the Republican Party,
doesn't he?He is their leader, after all.
This is peanuts compared to the fund raising of the Clinton Foundation. Bill has
probably already sold access in Billions of dollars.
$500 million dollars for shameless self-promotion. What good could be done with
that if she were raising it for a better reason? There's a lot of irony in
a candidate who would use the power of government to require everyone to share
what they earn to help each other taking voluntary donations for nothing more
than advertising costs.
@ Shaun: As I said, SS and Medicare must have tax increases and or benefit cuts
in order to survive so those are the only options going forward. Since the top
20% of tax payers contribute about 80% of all federal taxes collected while the
bottom 50% contribute only about 4%, the only people you can cut taxes on are
the 20% since the 50% don't pay hardly any taxes anyway! The answer to your
question who gives away the free stuff is obvious, unless you believe you have
the right to spend other people's money. So we have democrats who never met
a tax they don't love, as long as other people pay it.
Breath deep the gathering gloom, watch lite fade from everyroom. Red is gray and
yellow white. Only we decide which is right and which is an illusion. Face piles
and piles with smiles, it riles them that you precieve the wed that they weave,
keep on thinking free. Moody Blues.
I donated to Hillary.I am not big money. I am not a corporation. I am an
ordinary American who agrees with her policies. Anyone who agrees with
Trump is free to donate to him.It's an American thing.
"she will raise a lot of your money by taxation and she will spend it
foolishly and recklessly forever after with no regard to those who pay."I'm amazed at the power some here think Hillary Clinton will have
when she gets to the White House. Apparently, congress will no longer control
the purse string; she'll be able unilaterally enact gun confiscation law;
and, she'll single-handedly nullify the current constitution and rewrite
and ratify--all by herself--a new one.
Thid. So you think all is not well with SS and medicare but you are not willing
to take cuts are accept tax increases. What is your solution then?
You either raise taxes, reduce benefits, or eliminate the program. Also, republicans win elections by promising tax cuts all while not cutting
spending to match those cuts. Who is really giving away the free stuff?
She ( Hillary ) has raised a lot of money and she will spend a lot of money__
However if she ever gets to the white house she will raise a lot of your money
by taxation and she will spend it foolishly and recklessly forever after with no
regard to those who pay.
The Clintons have a long track record of shady financial dealings, always
accruing to their benefit. Many have compared it to "pay to play" or
"buying access."Smart rich people can see the future victory
for Hillary and just want to make sure they will have access to get their voices
heard after Mrs. Clinton takes office.The corruption which is
becoming embedded in our top levels of government is unprecedented, but we have
not seen anything yet compared to what will take place after January 20, 2017
The Clinton's will continue to collect money from foreign interests through
the Clinton Foundation and promise to stop when Hillary becomes president.
Continuing to do so as president would look like a conflict of interest. For
some reason it was not considered such when Hillary was Sec. of State and
instrumental in selling 20% of US uranium resources to Russia.The
Clinton's should have a problem with the anger of the American people; But
that does not seem to be a problem either, most people don't know or
don't care.I don't think they will have any problems
making the $1 billion target, money just flows to them from everywhere.
@ Shaun: SS and Medicare are ponzi schemes and will not survive another decade
without major alterations; tax increases and/or benefit reductions. The
hypocrisy comes from the left who constantly tell us all is well with both
programs as our national debt soars (doubled in the last 7 years with no end in
sight). Our grandchildren will not be amused that they are being forced to pay
for our benefits! But we won't call that hypocrisy, will we? Democrats have
a nicer word; re-distribution. It means some are forced to work for what they
will not receive so others can receive that for which they did not work! Its how
Democrats win elections, at least until we can no longer pay the interest on our
debt. Trump knows this day is coming and may be our last exit off the highway to
Greece, Venezuela, Peurto Rico, the EU and scores of other socialist failures.
@thid. Well republicans complain about the debt but then won't do anything
about social security and medicare, which is the biggest part of the federal
budget. Is that being a hypocrite?
@Prelax;"It looks like Trump wins in the thrifty race."Yep. Because "thrifty" is what Trump is all about. Golden Trump
Towers, Exclusive Trump golf courses & hotels. Thrifty travel on his own
757. Thrifty casinos. You're replacing inept & broke with
Impartial7What dishonesty has Trump done that can even come close to
Hillary? "get the money out of politics" after she is
sitting comfortably. It looks like Trump wins in the thrifty race.
Good for her. She obviously knows what campaigning entails, and has a team in
place that's functioning. I wish it didn't take this kind of money to
campaign, but it does and she's good at the process.
This is the person who says they fight for the poor and the downtrodden. How
hypocritical and disgusting.
Impartial (not): It was Hillary and the democrats who SAY they want to get money
out of politics and then do the exact opposite! Do as they say, not as they
actually do is the very definition of hypocrisy and Hillary is the poster
child! That you can't defend her other than blame the GOP is just a weak
Common sense says: 70% of the people don't trust Hillary Clinton. This
money comes from big money interests which will benefit from future contracts
and favors from a Clinton administration.Newt Gingrich said on
Hannity 2 days ago, “Donald J. Trump’s going to win, because in the
end the country’s not going to reward big banks and big bureaucracies and
big donors and big corruption by voting for a big liar, Hillary Clinton!”
Vote Trump-Pence 2016!
A billion dollars? Why would anyone need that much money to defeat Donald Trump?
He's the worst Republican presidential candidate EVER.
A successful powerful organization raises the required amount of money. Winging
it with no organization may not be quite as effective.
the fix is in -- has been ever since this woman started her campaign. Bernie
Sanders voters found out and soon the rest of will too. America will pay the
terrible price at the end of the day.
Thid BarkerVictor, ID"Hillary promised to "get the
money out of politics" to thunderous applause."Getting money
out of politics requires congressional action. Hillary is not doing a Bernie who
raised millions from small donations to his campaign. However, Passing law to
limit campaign donations is a good thing which can only be accomplished by a
leader in the position to move in that direction. Asking one candidate not to
use all the resources available is to put him/herself at a disadvantage.This while Republicans are working overtime to get more donations. With
Citizens United Republican expected to lead in the money game, but wealthy
Republican donors have been reluctant to give money to a losing campaign.
It's not that Republicans don't want the money. Like Hillary, they are
after the same level of money for their own campaigns.Sure, campaign
finance reform is necessary, but when the game is set as it is, don't whine
because your candidate isn't getting the cash to wage a competitive
@Thid;"And the most amazing thing about Hillary's dishonesty is,
Democrats do not care!"Replace "Trump" for Hillary and
"Republicans" for Democrats & see how well that fits.
During her acceptance speech at the DNC, Hillary promised to "get the money
out of politics" to thunderous applause. She hasn't even been elected
yet and she is already breaking her word. More proof that she lies and
can't be trusted! And the most amazing thing about Hillary's
dishonesty is, Democrats do not care!
Terrible waste of money!
