    the emphasis needs to be on candidates for public office and knowing whom they take money from really only tells us who's being extorted.

    But, my knowing that I've been extorted does not change a lot.  Even knowing that the workers in the electric plant down the road have been extorted is not much help.  If they go to vote because they are afraid of losing their jobs, that's not a positive.  If they don't go to vote because they are disgusted with the whole process, that's a negative.

    Government by the people can be defeated in so many ways if the agents of government we select are power-addled.

    Oh, and btw, as long as the corruption persists, public officials who don't go along with the system, will be considered traitors and targeted for un-election.  Thieves don't necessarily stick together, except when the honest man needs to be gotten rid of.

    The conservative mind relies mainly on what is plain to see.
