I'm not taking about Donald Trump. He's borrowing money from himself and getting donations from his followers to pay himself back with interest. He's also charging his campaign rent for facilities in his office buildings in New York City. If anyone hasn't figured out yet that this guy is a con man, they deserve to have him as President, but the rest of us don't.
So voters are in a quandary here. Trump claims he's spending his own money, which sounds to me like he's buying the Presidency for himself, but he really isn't spending his OWN money. He's borrowing money from himself which will be paid back with interest. He's renting offices in his own buildings, which will be paid for from campaign funds, and yes, he's collecting lots of donations from his followers and his new campaign advisers are ramping that up.
I am and always will be #NeverTrump. For awhile he was sinking himself in his own dumb rhetoric, but now he's hired a group of slick political consultants who could get Bobo the Chimp elected, but of course even Bobo would be better than Trump.
So the only alternative appears to be Hillary Clinton. She is better than Bobo the Chimp, and even more important, she's better than Trump the Chump. Bernie Sanders criticized Hillary for being the candidate of big money. She is bought and paid for by corporations. However, there are more than two candidates running.
I wrote a blog about Third Party Candidates, the Green Party's Jill Stein and the Libertarian Gary Johnson. The pundits say they don't have a chance to win and will only take votes away from one or the other main party candidates resulting in a skewed election.
A lot of people disagree. Gary Johnson is raising a lot of money from a lot of small donors. I recently donated $50 to his campaign. Bernie Sanders should pay attention to this.
Johnson's website says he raised over $1,770,000 from 55,000 donors. An email I received two days ago from the Johnson campaign claimed, "As of now, over 92,000 of you donated more than $3 million this month." Now THAT'S a grass-roots campaign!
Johnson is fighting to get into the debates, which are about one month away now. He's getting very close to the required 15% in the polls. Trump's high priced team of advisers will have their work cut out for them to prepare Donald from assaults from both the Left and the Right. He will either throw a hissy-fit and refuse to participate if Johnson is there, or throw a tantrum right on the stage. Either way America will be much greater without Donald Trump as President.
