Jon Corzine's Money Buys Another Election
Sen. Jon Corzine, the New Jersey Democrat, brings his characteristic grandiosity even to his buyer's remorse. In 2000, the former chairman of Goldman Sachs pulled $60.2 million from his wallet to buy a U.S. Senate seat. But just four years after the most expensive Senate campaign in American history, he decided to escape from that seat -- for which he paid $27,489.03 a day, prorated over six years -- and try to become governor.
Our Holy Spirit answers:
Dear ones, there is no reason to fear a governor who spends all his money getting elected. Money is not the root of evil, and monied men and women often produce great good in the world. The root of all evil is refusal to listen to My Voice. I AM your guidance for all good for everyone. Do not listen to those who would tax money-earners to give to those who do not create or take advantage of opportunities. If Robin Hood had robbed from the rich to give to the poor, I would have put a stop to such an injustice. But he robbed from the taxers to give to the taxed, thus he was in heaven's eyes a hero.
