Over 6 billion dollars has been spent since the beginning of the year on political campaigns

And we expect/trust anyone wrapped up with this this much $$$ on either side with countless party and lobby interest to do anything substantial to reduce spending, counteract bi-partisan bs and revise the current system? Both sides are loving the system and continue to fake the public. The cash, the attention, the media spotlight, they soak it in whether they are perceived good or bad.

Seriously if one thing is clear after this election, step one in changing anything is getting money out of politics (I don't even know if this is possible at this point) and term limits in congress. I mean 6 billion dollars on campaigning. That's a fuggin joke.

Beating a dead horse but right now, if you can buy your way in, you can get it.

Said it before and will say it again.

Both parties have us right where they want us.

Program after Program is nothing more than making us feel that we couldn't succeed in life without a bloated federal government.

It's honestly only taken about 70 years to really make it sink in.

I spent $0 and ended up at the same place as Romney. I guess I'm a better business man than him.

I didn't donate anything either because realistically, I didn't care who won.

My life was going to go on regardless of who won. When I look back at the way life has gone since I graduated college 3.5 years ago, I think I'm in a pretty strong place and I blame nobody but myself and a little luck for that.
