NYP: “Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records. The president-elect, who confounded critics during the campaign by saying there was no need to raise or spend $1 billion or more, ended up making do with $600 million.”
“The figures include all spending by the campaigns, PACs and party committees.”
As we approach Christmas, everyone still looking to get the most for their gifts, it’s not the price tag but the thought behind it. Take the time to understand what would make that person happy. Once I gave a rechargeable flashlight to a flashlight person who maintained a drawer full of batteries. This plugged in and dim lit within reach of the bed. It was about $30 but as effective as $500.
Trump employed the same strategy taking the time to realize exactly what his supporters wanted and providing it to them in the most effective manner. Trump ends every event with music from the drug ridden political 60’s which has an uplifting characteristic. Giving somebody what they need does not have to cost more.
