  •  When it comes to campaign finance... (0+ / 0-)

    Add to the list:

    Campaign contributions should remain in a static holding account and are not usable as investment dollars.

    The very nature of the source of contributions can already create problems with 'owing favors' to big business and creating conflicts of interest - which are rampant in our system of government.

    The problem gets worse when these funds are pooled into investments. The conflict of interest already potentially present, becomes active as those funds become a focal point of how the Rep/Senator will vote.

    When are we going to insist that there is a separation of duties and adherence to rules and procedures that prevent this kind of flagrant abuse of our governing system?

    -6.38, -6.21: Lamented and assured to the lights and towns below, Faster than the speed of sound, Faster than we thought we'd go, Beneath the sound of hope...
