      I don't understand why I or anyone else would ever again give money to a particular candidate or the national committee of a party, when a corporation or group of corporations can drown out my voice and vote with their money. Since the majority of corporations prefer republican politicians, I don't expect to see a lot of democrats elected in the near to distant future unless they are bought and paid for by corporate money.
