Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the USA it is axiomatic that 'The highest return you will ever get on an investment is from donations to a successful politician'. That is pretty sad as a business model. How are you going to externalize the destruction of your own society? Because that is the end result of all contributions by the wealthy to politicians. Only the cover story has improved since James I granted a salt monopoly patent. Most of these 'donors' are just buying the right to plunder the public by one scheme or another.
