Well no matter how you look at it, votes are paid for. It use to be all about the offerings on the table. Now it's all about making deals to get votes, with those who expect to be paid. Well here it is front and center.

Promises on a whim
Reparations for BLM

Democrat votes matter
Burned, playing with fire

A dominant force, paid to vote
Now demanding a larger bank note

Bribery, extortion, or political gain
What ever cause, someone's to blame
