Democrats and their media keep talking about the influence of big money. And they know exactly what they’re talking about because the big money is always on their side. And the money is often unseen. It creeps through cracks and pours through indirectly. Government money fuels their community groups. And then there’s the vast river of dark money out of Silicon Valley and Wall Street that swings the country their way.
Where did the dark money go in 2020? This is just a small part of the big picture.
Of donations and spending reported to the FEC, liberal groups directed more than $514 million in dark money into the 2020 election, overshadowing around $200 million that boosted Republicans.
Anonymous donors poured record amounts of money into groups backing President Joe Biden in the 2020 contest, leaving the public without a full accounting of who helped him win the White House.
Biden’s presidential bid attracted around $174 million in support from anonymous donors, more than six times the $25.2 million in dark money contributions and spending boosting President Donald Trump’s unsuccessful re-election effort.
Of course, this turns into a pitch for HR-1’s pitch to kill free elections and turn America into California. Anyone who isn’t suffering from a short memory though remembers that campaign finance reform is how we got into this mess. Instead of taking money out of politics, it poured a lot more money into it while shifting the center of power over to an ideological monopoly that helped push the country much further leftward.
If HR-1 were to become a nightmarish reality, you know that the power to determine elections would shift even further leftward, and more money than ever would pour into its political coffers.
The Left never dismantles its own power. It only strengthens it.
