Submission Still Considering the $1bn Presidential Price Tag?

Richard Buchanan writes: " ng-the-billion-presidential-price-tag/ $1 billion is the price tag for an effective presidential election campaign!? We should be outraged at the price of admission — not for the sake of price but because of the promises, obligations and crooked behind-closed-doors deals that must be made for a candidate to effectively raise such money! I'm feeling optimistic and I hope the candidates, the Presidential hopefuls, won't cave in to media pressure and quit the race for the sake of $1 billion. Here is my perspective! I'd love your comments."
