Yeah, the big money & the mega rich are big Conservatives.
Yes they are... The mega donors to the Right way outnumber those to the left. They hide behind dark money organizations because they are smart enough to know how massively unpopular their positions are to the majority of people.

""'When allies of former President Barack Obama set up a super PAC to support his 2012 re-election, the White House disowned the group, The New York Times published a scathing editorial and former Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin gave a speech warning Democrats would "lose our soul" if they allowed big money into the party."""

At least they speak against it... The sad fact is there is no other way to fight the right, the right made the rules and no big donor on the left wants the right to treat them like Soros and be in fear for their life constantly...

In 2004, the libs in Venezuela were cheering when their party packed their Supreme Court, just like the libs are wanting the Democrats to pack the court. Once done, there is no "second vote" -- there won't be a "next party" to undo what they did. Every time this has happened in history, the elite have gotten incredibly rich, while the rest of the country is left in ruins. Here's an article from 2004 on what was happening to what then, with their vast oil reserves, was one of the richest countries in the world. Chavez promised free everything for everyone, they voted him in, he packed the court, controlled everything, and the country is now in ruins.

Venezuela: Chávez Allies Pack Supreme Court

The Venezuelan Congress dealt a severe blow to judicial independence by packing the country’s Supreme Court with 12 new justices, Human Rights Watch said today. A majority of the ruling coalition, dominated by President Hugo Chávez’s party, named the justices late yesterday, filling seats created by a law passed in May that expanded the court’s size by more than half.

“Five years ago, President Chávez’s supporters helped to enshrine the principle of judicial independence in a new democratic constitution,” said José Miguel Vivanco, Americas director at Human Rights Watch. “Now, by packing the country’s highest court, they are betraying that principle and degrading Venezuelan democracy.”

This is the latest tactic from the left. Redefine the term court packing. They are utilizing their complicit MSM to push it.
Redefine vocabulary, and the libs think they've redefined reality. In Orwell's "1984", this was called "Double-speak". In 2020 this is called "The Democratic Platform".

Not a whiff of this in tonight's debate. Will Joe be able to run out the clock without ever having to answer?
