BILLIONAIRE CASINO MOGUL SHELDON ADELSON SAYS HE’LL DOUBLE DOWN ON GOP – LITERALLY | After he and his wife spent a total reportedly in the neighborhood of $150 million on independent expenditures to help elect a mostly unsuccessful slate of 2012 Republican candidates, Sheldon Adelson says he will double his contributions next time around. Adelson told the Wall Street Journal that his 2012 donations were double what he gave in 2008 and that he was ready to double his spending again. “I’ll spend that much and more,” he pledged, “Let’s cut any ambiguity.” In 2004, the general election campaigns of President George W. Bush and Sen. John Kerry — combined — spent less than $150 million. With an estimated net worth of almost $25 billion, Adelson could theoretically spend $500,000 on every single Republican House and Senate nominee for the next 186 years.

Nasty troll of a man who said Israel is more important to him than the U.S. yet continues to live here.

Wouldn't a tax increase have been less than $150 million for him?
What is wrong with these people spending this kind of money.

They'll have to find her first. Old Jan has disappeared it seems, R9.
Appalachian Trail anyone?

I second r9. Why doesn't he do something philanthropic with all the good money he throws after bad trash Republicans? Adelson doesn't like Obama because he doesn't bend over every time Israel tells him to grab his ankles. Fuck the little Troll and the fascists in Israel.

In a separate interview with the WSJ, he says that he and his wife are social liberals but support Republicans because of the Democrats support of unions.

Why doesn't he spend some of his money to get a facelift, fixing his hideous troll-face?

I hate to say it, but it's dangerous to let any one person have 25 billion dollars. They are just too dangerous. That sort of wealth needs to be redistributed. Maybe the dirty commie pinkos knew something?

The fact of the matter is angry white guys no longer are a majority. He can spend billions and it's not going to get minorities (LGBT, Latinos, African Americans, women, etc.) to chuck their progressive values.
