    "Election results are having less and less relation to spending—Democrats were heavily outspent in 2012, Republicans were heavily outspent in the Colorado recalls. "

    Uhm...I get that you want this to be true, but that doesn't make it so.  And a couple of elections don't make a rule or even a trend.

    Plus, just the election fundraising portion of being elected limits the ability to govern drastically across the board.

    I get why you want that to not be an issue, but it is still the #1 most clear problem in American politics THAT BOTH SIDES GENERALLY AGREE UPON.  As much as you may have given up that anything substantial can be done per campaign finance reform, I am still of the opinion that this is a problem that can be addressed.
