I Don’t Care! I Have More Money

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I remember back a few years ago when Bill Clinton was approaching the time when he announced, formally, that he would seek reelection. One day as I was talking to a close friend, I mentioned something about the unfortunate fate that had befallen the American people that some would choose to cast a ballot for such a crooked and perverted man. The response I got at that time surprised me a bit. He said, “Yeah, what a little scumbag! But I’ll vote for him again because I got more money now than I did when Bush was president. The rest of that stuff doesn’t really matter…does it?”

I also remember as a young boy my father making a comment that people vote according to the content of their wallet. In other words, exactly as my friend stated.

Here we are some 20 years later, Trump having already announced that he is definitely going to run for reelection, and I wonder how many will cast another ballot, or cast one for the first time, for Donald Trump because they have more money than they did under Obama?

Money is the cause of selective blindness.
