    politicians. If they do something we like, we should shower them with pennies and quarters and nickles and dimes. If they don't, they get bupkis.

    One cannot seriously debate an issue when one side controls access to the facts and is economical with the truth, while at the same time introducing blatant falsehoods into the discussion. - Joe Shikspack

      The key, IMO, is punishment, and the punishment is to remove the reward. Which is why I hold my vote close to the vest and speak loudly about my various intents of what to do with it.

      Interesting idea here from your comment:

      What if we had a subscription kind of donation service where we could, in a moment's notice remove some of those dimes and quarters in a consequent, and timely fashion?

      Of course I have a serious problem with giving money to Pols to give to the corporate media, but perhaps a subscription could be kind of like a gift card to non-corporate media political resources...

      just riffin' here. Good comment with which to riff from...

      Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.
