    It seems to me you're drawing a conclusion without presenting evidence to support it. You're simply asserting that CU had a huge impact when the actual results were entirely predictable by ignoring finance mechanisms entirely.

    When you write "Oligarchs wouldn't contribute if it didn't work" you're leaving off a lot of context. Of course it works--for them. They aren't contributing to buy Their Guy.
