  •  (grin) I'm sure our law-makers will (8+ / 0-)

    I have absolute faith "our" law-makers will do the right thing for their constitutents.

    Unfortunately, we are not the constituents for our law-makers.  Only those who can pony up the $5-10k at election time get the attention of the "representatives" (how representative is that!?!)

    It is time to free our law-makers from the inherently corrupting activity of soliciting and receiving private financial gifts at election time.  Make ALL elections publicly funded.  

    Public office should not be gained by private money.

    •  Why fund them at all? (0+ / 0-)

      All the campaign ads could be put on the candidate's web site. If the campaign needs to pay people to run the phones, the campaign does not have enough popular support anyway.
