  1. Corporate Dictatorship. By any other name….the US of A.

    Tax Conglomerate war profits. Tax USA trained Mercenaries and give peace a chance.

    what he is saying is true. he is the one.

  6. Steyer is cool . Just ’cause someone has the means to spend does’t mean that individual’s motives should be questioned. He seems benevolent to me. I say keep spending .

  7. I agree 100% with term limits of Congress. I have been complaining about this for 2 decades.

    • You obviously don’t live in Michigan where we have term limits and it has created an absolute mess of a legislative branch of government. From gerrymandering on a criminal scale to hoax legislation, to criminalizing union membership, term limits has bought us a dictatorship by the Republican Party and the Chamber of Commerce. Term limits is a fantasy cure for ills that should be addressed by voting people and ideas out of office.

  8. Tom Steyer has given more to this country than Moscow Mitch and Chinese wife Elaine Chao who have done nothing for America in 30 years and both are shameless and currently being investigated again for $97M of fraud between Russia and China. These two despicable Traitors have sold our country out for both of these commie dictatorships. Are you listening yet Kentucky?!? P.s. not all billionaires are trumpsucking maggots like Tom Steyer who has spent millions for the people of his state and beyond.

  9. Steyer IS a corporation!

      you don’t become a billionaire by being a good person. Stop and frisk as example. He hurt thousands of low income Americans. research his cold shriveled heart. Don’t be fooled, he lies well.

    Steyer over all other democratic candidates. Yep. Good vid

  12. If you have the money spend it.

  13. Every US citizen, rich or poor and in between, has the right to throw their hat in the ring for the US presidency. But these billionaires (R or D) sicken me. They are looking out of their own interests. Caps on campaign spending are necessary.

    I like people when they are not pushed by the radical leftist ideology. He’s more of a moderate left which is more of what America needs for their next election. The left won’t make it through the election and don’t stand a chance if they don’t get a moderate leftist as their nominee

  15. Not a word on the Citizens United SCOTUS decision that allows corporations to give unlimited amounts to super PACs and billionaires like Bloomberg to buy elections.

  16. Look, it already happened. So Dems might as well take advantage of it too. Hopefully they’ll reform election and campaign laws while in office.

  17. At least he really is a billionaire. You can’t buy him !

  18. Steyer is interesting. Did you check out the successful bank he started??? The fair loans were very successful!!!

  19. A nation of humans is not a corporation. Billionaires are businessmen who have to profit for themselves. DUH!

  20. This guy is completely out of his mind !
