The most important issue that needs to be in the national spotlight is CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM!!!

Why do our Democrats sometimes lack a spine? Is it b/c they are suffering from genetic defects? No, it is because they owe a special interest! Why do we allow legal bribery of our elected officials and Judges? We no longer have a representative democracy. Our media is complicit b/c we allowed them to consolidate into 6 corporations, one of which is one of our largest defense contractors (GE). We bitch and moan about Wall Street and the financial mess they created, but act like democrats have our back. We have a class of people (including corporations) who are above the law. No one goes to jail or pays a fine more than the profit they made from the crime itself if they are big or important! We must all do our part to bring this issue into the spotlight and force our legislatures to enact COMPLETE Campaign Finance Reform (CCFR)!!! Just imagine if our politicians did not have to spend almost all of their time raising money! Money will always find a way in, but it would help reset things, and at least make it illegal to bribe public officials! Most of the issues we care about would or could be resolved in a far better way if we had a truly representative government. There are now many disaffected Republicans who would support CCFR because they don't always agree with the corporate Republicans. Help bring this issue to the forefront and keep it there!
