  •  An advantage, yes, but not insurmountable. (0+ / 0-)

    In any political or economic system, the wealthy and well-connected will have SOME advantage.

    Fair or unfair, that is a truth you can count on.

    In my proposed system (for which I welcome ideas and criticism), that advantage will be exposed through the reporting system.  Generally speaking, individual fortunes are less common (and lesser amounts) than corporate fortunes.  I'm not discounting them, only saying they are the lesser of two evils.

    People would be able to support whom they choose, but everyone's donations would be visible to everyone else.  Again, transparency that would expose potential bias of the elected official.

    Aggregation of funds simply invites abuse of those aggregate funds -- and would be no different than the direct donations of corporations.
