Gagain's Ideas and Opinions
Abstract:
The American system is plagued with "transactional voters" versus "real American voters." Transactional voters get involved in campaigns and elections with their millions of dollars because they want something in return. American democracy for them is a quid-pro-quo. They want something for their money. American democracy is their financial investment. Billionaire casino man Sheldon Adelson single handedly donated US $11 million to Newt Gingrich's campaign 2012 GOP Presidential Primary campaign; and announced he would be willing to donate up to US $100 million. The big question is: what is he is looking for in return?
