What happened to the misinformed concept that money buys elections? I guess when people with money win , that is the complaint. And when they lose, they lose. Ummm--can we conclude that money doesnt buy elections? Or do we have to hear this line of tripe every election from the riff-raff, lazy, hand out takers again?
