That's great - if I had that money, would have done same. Too bad there haven't been more, but it shows a person who puts his money where he feels it needs to go.

....same, never changed....and neither did they...in fact they doubled-down and got worse. And most importantly - they ignored the importance of women and minorities and immigrants.

I could update that list with next to no changes (just change Romney to Trump etc) and it all would apply to the current election and shows very clearly that the same issues exist in our country (more than ever) and the GOP doesn't get it.

Which is why, again, they will lose the election and continue to lose support and fall apart.
