Corky,

Billionaires, of whatever ideology, are a plague on the earth and mankind. We need to do to them, what the English did to their aristocracy - tax them out of existence.

As a result of Citizen's United, the Republic is as close to death as it has been since it was founded.

Republican affiliation: $304.0 million

That's 1.8 X more from the Republican affiliated.

...Texas Republicans bankrolled by Christian conservative donors are hoping to ride a wave of parental anger over the teaching of race and sexuality in schools to achieve what has long been an unattainable goal: state funding for private education.

Groups committed to giving parents the option of sending their children to private schools using taxpayer dollars " sometimes known as "school choice" or "vouchers" " have given millions of dollars to Republican candidates in Texas this year, helping win key races and pushing some establishment lawmakers further to the right on the issue. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott recently pledged to make school choice a priority in the next legislative session if he wins re-election over Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke.

As a result, political observers say, public school funding is effectively on the ballot Tuesday....
