Obviously, the big money donors won’t support Trump – he cannot be bought, they need someone they will have the direct line to in the Oval Office.
Every single candidate, other than Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson, are up to their ears in ‘big money donors’….that’s just the way the game is played. If you don’t have them, you can’t be heard by the masses, because those with the donors will bury you with their ads.
Think about what I just said, “that’s just the way the game is played.” Americans are tired of the game playing and they don’t want their leader beholden to special interests anymore. Many of you will not know these men hand bankrolled Ted Cruz , and many of you are going to be angry when you read for how much.
I’m sure they will not ask for anything in return.
From the Associated Press:
Four of America’s wealthiest businessmen laid the foundation for Ted Cruz’s now-surging Republican presidential campaign and have redefined the role of political donors.
With just over a week until voters get their first say, the 45-year-old Texas senator known as a conservative warrior has been ascendant. The $36 million committed last year by these donor families is now going toward television, radio and online advertisements, along with direct mailings and get-out-the-vote efforts in early primary states.
The donors’ super political action committees sponsored rallies Saturday in Iowa featuring Cruz and conservative personality Glenn Beck. The state holds the leadoff caucuses on Feb. 1.
The long-believing benefactors are New York hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer, Texas natural gas billionaires Farris and Dan Wilks, and private-equity partner Toby Neugebauer. They honed their plan to help Cruz before he began his steady rise in polls — even before he announced his presidential bid in March.
“No one wants to lose,” Neugebauer told The Associated Press when asked why he and others bet big on Cruz. “We didn’t miss that an outsider would win. I think we’ve nailed it.”
For Cruz, the pool of really big donors is far more concentrated: Mercer gave $11 million, Neugebauer gave $10 million, and the Wilks brothers and their wives together gave $15 million.
Neugebauer went on to say in the piece, “We don’t need! We just don’t want our children and grandchildren growing up in a bankrupt country.”
If that is true, Neugebauer, then why don’t you go to the Tea Party elite and let them know that you want them to raise taxes on the wealthy, so the country has more money to keep it from going bankrupt. I would love to see your tax returns to see if you are paying 35% annually on your income or if you use every loophole to reduce that to what 10%.
Did you know about these millionaires? Do you care men such as this will own your politician whenever they want a favor done? Is this the Washington you want? Share this and get the word out! You don’t want the status quo; you want change, and you want it now.
