You made the argument that the ability of super rich people to out spend others in the political arena is undemocratic. The logical extension of that argument is that it's undemocratic as long as anyone, including grocery baggers, can be out spent. If your argument isn't just an arbitrary attack on the 1%, then let's hear your logical distinction between what you call undemocratic and the grocery bagger extension.
