Here we go again! Back to another marathon campaign. Do we realize that we just completed a long, long, dreary presidential primary season where millions upon millions of dollars, guised as campaign contributions, were spent on many, many expenses? Those expenses included TV ads, airfares for a cast of thousands, hotels, food, beverages, conventions, books, parties and enough balloons to eclipse both the sun and moon. This is so hard to swallow for the average $30,000-a-year income workers who are the real voters, who must spend $4 per gallon for gasoline. We also should know by now that there will be a loser and that means a lot of wasted cash, not that the winner deserves all those contributions either.
