  1. When we talk about the 'influence of money in politics,' what we are really talking about it the gullibility of too many voters who don't have enough factual information upstairs to resist a slick, deceitful ad campaign. That's really the problem: it's the tyranny of money over the misinformed and downright stupid.

    Therefore, we need to move to an educated electorate as the founding fathers envisioned in a more crude fashion. With the aid of today's computers, we could easily assign, factual objective questions of voters (as on a citizenship test) like, "What are the three primary branches of government?" before an individual's vote.

    The published outcome could then be separated between the ignorant voter and the better-educated one. For example, "Forty-two percent of those who voted 'yes' on Amendment Twelve could not answer correctly the test question that preceded their vote." No one would be denied the right to vote, nonetheless we could all see directly how much dangerous influence the misinformed and stupid have on our country's government.

    From this point we could proceed to a better solution to the problem.

  2. I will never vote for a billionaire who is so eager to be a candidate to save all the other ones their dear green gods. Vote blue and down to earth candidates.

  3. Maybe if the two black candidates didn't have similar politics to Claire mccaskill, AKA the person who just lost, maybe ww would have a better chance at reasonable representation

  4. The DNC should allow Booker, Castro and Klobachar to be in the Dec. 12th debate, we need the diversity and the grassroots voices to be heard.

  5. Gosh finally put a finger on it… booker’s voice… it’s identical to the standard voice used when hiding someone’s identity

  6. corey stop bringing up obama the people chose him not just b/c he was black but b/c he had an awesome message people are not going to chose you b/c you are black you are expecting black folks to chose a black person they are not stupid they are going to chose the person who has a message stop trying to make black folks vote for a black candidate b/c they are black it does not work that way and no matter what color you are no one will compare to obama.

  7. Booker, it's not America doing it, it's your own Democrat voters doing it. LMFAO the Democrat voter, the so called people who claim to dislike money and people who have money. LMFAO. But lets not forget that the majority of Democrats in the rats nest of Democrats called government. Are rich people, the same kind of so called people they claim to hate. LMFAO. Oh and lets forget scumacrat so called people who finance the Democrat party. All millionaires, so called people the political class tells their lowlife voters they hate. LMFAO

  8. Booker is a textbook racist. "Vote for me because of my race". What's he even going to do for black people? The whole election depends on black people? I don't buy that. Most of the swing states are mostly white. If you're serious, come out with some policies and plans that help everyone.

  9. The "Booker Surprised Face" is costing him credibility, not everything requires a full blown eye popping look of surprise.

  10. We're not coming out for her …or you either. If it's not Bernie, then I'd rather have Tchump in office than a 2 faced, bourgeoisie liberal, status quo sellout like you.

  11. Just a bunch of bulshit excuses that are used by certain races of people when they were unable to get the job done..
    Cory Spartacus Booker needs to be a man and it just admit he is just not what the people want..

    Spartacus could have 200 million in his campaign and he still wouldn't get elected

  12. Kamala Harris dropped out of the race because she didn't have the funding to continue, that has NOTHING to do with race. And BTW if you want the races to be seen as equal STOP DIVIDING THEM!!! And let's not forget that there are more races than Blacks and Whites, where are their representation? I am Native American and I have NEVER seen us duly represented in the politics that govern the land which was actually ROBBED from my people!!! WTF????? Stop crying, you insolent children!!!

  13. So, Booker and Castro are slandering democrat voters as racist in order to guilt trip them into not supporting white candidates? And they have the nerve to lecture OTHERS on racial bias? Hypocrisy comes natural to these slithering snakes.

  14. C'mon, Mr. Booker, Hillary was a worse candidate than Trump. If the Dems had had a fair nominating process based on grass roots support, we would be talking about President Bernie Sanders today, but President Hillary Clinton? At least Trump is entertaining. Corrupt, thin-skinned and arrogant, but entertaining. And Trump works hard, doesn't take the Presidency for granted. Trump is deeply flawed, but Hillary was non-serviceable. Trump is silencing critics one by one, Hillary promulgated a ban on criticism. Look forward to vote for Bernie. Warren, maybe. Yang, definitively. But-edge-edge, possibly. Cory Booker, no. Needs improvement.

  15. If Corey Booker dosen't win the Democrat nomination, it's because of racism by Democrats. No other reason.

  16. The AA don't like Harris, neither do the Indians–people know about her prosecutor days. I like Booker and Harris as Senators. The presidency is NOT about COLOR but the most qualify–BO, nice guy, smart, ethical, honest, trustworthy but did not have the independent force to be an free thinking president–all he did was go along to get along–Bush2 was also not qualify to be president–NONE of them had a free thinking mind.

  17. Booker like Harris had NO plans, no policies just talk–talk along is not enough to qualify. We had one big mouth with a sad past as the 45th, we need no more loud mouths.

  18. Complains about billionaires , but his secret lover is Alex Soros, son of Billionaire and Nazi Collaborator, George Soros.

  19. Taking advice from Clare she lost her Senate sit in Missouri. Clare voted over 45 % with trump bill. Clare is a Republican hiding behind as a Democrat

  20. I didn't know that there was a racial quota for candidates. Where does it say that there has to be a several black candidates to choose from? This is supposed to be about the most qualified person with the best ideas, not about color.

  21. Does Trump understand what "two-faced" means? It means sharing different opinions on the same thing at different times. Sort of like if you called someone "two-faced" one moment, then called that same person "a nice guy" in the next moment. You know, like Trump did, in case that didn't land.

  22. People did not, would not vote for Hillary as nobody liked her and no body liked the lack of vision of kamala. No Manitoba of Bernie again… push Cory ( who has no hope) push every candidate the DNC allow you too but Bernie is the answer to Trympism and if you ignore him you make yourself irrelevant.

  24. Sweet….Cory Booker just inferred that the whole democratic party is racist….

    Castro not pulling in all the hispanic constituents? Racist!
    AOC endorsing "old whitey" Sanders? Racist!
    All black women supporting Biden instead of Kamala? Racist!

    Everybody into the pool !!! The pool of "Racism"…lol.

  25. It shouldn't be a black or white issue. It's about who is most qualified to run the country. We can't base it on race!! We can't just elect a black or Hispanic president to be politically correct.

  26. Trump consistently talks of others in te exact same way as he behaves himself. " He's two faced > He's a nice guy". How more 'two faced ' can you get Donny? A complete contradiction in terms in full view of the rest of the world. WHAT A WALLY!

  27. Look man, don't blemish any candidates honorable loss by trying to spin to us that it's anyone's fault but theirs. She ran for president, she didn't get support for her platform, that's it. Stop polluting and inflaming this dull reality with more useless identity politic BS. It's annoying and dishonorable to Kamala's efforts.

  28. As an independent I think that there should be no advertising period during you parties stage of selection. We as the people should see the debates but overall advertising should be limited to the actual Race after the candidates have been chosen. And there should also be a time constraint on entering the arena. Seeing Billionaires dominating the political scene or entering when they feel like it is wrong period. This all reminds me of the Roman empire, the corruption the slow erosion between being a republic for the people to one of Authoritarianism and the eventual self-destruction of that empire.

  29. Party-line gerrymandering put the popular-vote loser into office. Now this panel suggests manipulating voter choice by race, financial fitness and vague PC criteria.
    Divide the country into districts based on proximity to the nearest city within its respective state. Do it once and never again. Reapportion representatives only at the time of the census.
    The minority is not completely disenfranchised so long as there is compromise and so long as the resulting laws are written narrowly and revisited to assure that they remain relevant.

  31. Billionaires are a tiny minority, pay less in taxes and yet they have the most representation in government. Sounds like Great Britain circa 1776.


  33. So let me get this straight Sen. Booker is not getting the message, brother sometimes people just like what they like one thing is the what you think and what some people are telling you and the reality is the numbers, sometimes you just have to understand its not your time thats all nothing to do with race, stop making this look like you are the victim smdh you , should also drop and and support a strong candidate so you have a good chance in 2020 and stop been a shadow for others your numbers are bad , i know you probably a great person but its just not your time thats all CH knew this thats why she decided to hit the fence.

  34. There Are Now More Billionaires Than Native American People In 2020 Race
    There Are Now More Billionaires Than Asian People In 2020 Race
    There Are Now More Billionaires Than Atheist People In 2020 Race

    Sorry Cory, you're too biased to be president.

  35. While I agree with much of the discussion, at one point, I sensed a kind of code that suggests there's something somehow wrong about having competition in a primary, as if Democrats are supposed to "come together" before a nominee has been chosen. No, sorry, we all have different views on policies, and we're going to slug it out from here to June. THEN we'll come together and defeat what's left of Trump.

  36. I want Barron Trump put on extreme scrutiny from now on! Donald abused a Gold Star family for political gain. so why not? I say hit him where it hurts. F you Trump! And F your family too.
    Did I go too far? Has Donald gone too far?

  37. Booker is a corporate hack. Senator Biden did the same if not under his watch as vice President. And please don't tell me it was debunked, because it was not. I don't believe so many older blacks are so enamored with Biden. Apparently, they must not be aware of his horrible policies and voting records as it regards to blacks. Just like they thought Clinton was the 1st virtual black Pres until they start to inspect his policies.

  38. He is no Obama , he dosen't have a wife or children. She didnt have it either. She had a white husband and no kids of her own. Obama had the perfect image of black family. This is the truth rather you like it or not. A black face alone is not going to get it. Corey doesn't have a chance, he doesn't connect with the authenticity at all

  39. Booker brags about Newark and it is the nastiest place in the nation to raise a family. Newark was a stepping stone for Booker as is everyone and everything else.

  40. Booker says "there are more billionaires than black people"….well, there are more African American candidates than there are Japanese Americans, Italian Americans, German Americans, French Americans, Colombian Americans, Canadian Americans, Jewish Americans, Brazilian Americans etc……Why is it always a problem these days if there are more "anything" than people with black skin. BTW, candidates are always millionaires and become billionaires whether they win or not. Stop trying to trigger the people that hate anyone that has more than them. Grow up Corey and act like the rich, black man you are and not the jealous, finger pointing, hateful, melt down mess you are every time you open your mouth. Nobody likes to listen to a brat that never stops whining.

  41. Cory, it takes more than being black—as you well know. Kamala often blabbered after her answer was long since over. She lost her way.

  42. Our elections I agree should be a fair playing field you should cap how much money each person may spend. Also we should shorten the time on campaigning.

  43. Candidates blaming the party kind of like politicians blaming the voters. There is a candidate now that has the young African American vote, actually he has ALL young people, black, white, brown, green, yellow, purple and so forth. . There is a candidate now who is not a billionaire, but has millions and millions of doners. A candidate that has demonstrated honor and dignity for decades, and even now. Can you guess who that is? It’s not a trick question.

  44. All this is irrelevant if we can't impeach Trump for something. For god's sake cant we impeach him for having orange hair, surely that can be a crime.

  45. My "like" is for Senator Booker but he's probably too normal to be voted president. Obama always had a kind of rockstar quality. Sen Booker seems like a genuine, thoughtful, salt of the earth type person. Our culture seems addicted to a kind of theater he doesn't represent.

  46. Cory, the USA ran inteventions in elections for over 9 decades, why are you crying, USA has no values, your run is over, Now Russia and China, India, Mexico, stop mentioning <Hillary, she had to much baggage, man up and stop the bullshit, enjoy your weekend

  47. If Bernie were to win it would be the first time in history we can prove most Americans are not too stupid to vote correctly. Well at least those who are not already billionaires who have a much different agenda and "needs".

  48. Cory orrr… Uncle fester doing blackface?….  His deer in the headlite eyes really creep me out…. His pedophile creepy eyes,… Make sure you don't leave your daughter alone in the same room with him….. Well maybe the daughter might be ok…. But for sure don't leave your son alone with Cory backdoor booker. Trump nickname "Cory no girlfriend booker"

  49. why vote for a millionaire or billionaire????
    they dont care about the common person…….they only care about their money

  50. Puting a cap on political donations it won't stop millionaires from owning candidates that's what government is made out of money, money are favors and alliances, alliances and favors cust money!
