  •  Money cannot buy elections without bribing the (0+ / 0-)

    voters or the people doing the counting.

    Small election or large, money makes the biggest difference when the candidates are uninspiring.  When nobody cares about you or the other guy, sheer volume does matter.

    Soooo...run candidates that will inspire voters.

    Oh -- right.  That really is a problem these days, isn't it?

    •  Good candidates still lose to moneyed bad (0+ / 0-)

      all too often... it is not simply that there are no good Democrats running... sure there could be more than there are but money still tips the balance in far too many contests...

      •  Perhaps somebody is wrong about those (0+ / 0-)

        "good" candidates.

        Al Gore was supposedly a good candidate.  John Kerry, too.
        Both ran awful Presidential campaigns.
