What a waste of capital…

Most expensive election ever, $6 billion. Click here.



  1. I don’t look at it that way. $6 billion was direct spend helping printers make posters, advertising for “regular” and on-line media outlets and paying for other types of services. Additionally, all of those campaign stops brought in dollars to local businesses that otherwise wouldn’t have been spent.

    Capitalism is capitalism! That’s why I WANT rich people. They can buy a yacht which will feed 200-300 familes (ship yard, furniture makers, interior designers, etc.). I don’t care WHAT is spent, as long as it doesn’t leave the country and get spent outside of the United States (buy American!)

  2. gg wouldn’t mind the cost if you got a decent choice in our “democracy”… Ron Paul ­čÖé

    Otherwise, that $6 billion should go to pay off the underwater-part of mortgages. That would have more impact on the 70% consumer-driven GDP than advertising spots….
