8. Easy Solution: TOUGH new campaign financing laws...
The only way we the people are going to change the current corrupt system is to stop the massive amounts of money flowing into the pockets and campaigns of candidates. Idiotic conservatives always fight against any campaign finance regulation because they are so easily duped into believing money is free speech. Then the dimwitted conservatives whine about what the government is doing without even realizing they are doing it to themselves, and to the rest of us.
We need to limit the amount of money spent on each election. We need public financing of elections. We need a law that prohibits anyone from contributing to a candidate unless they can vote for that candidate. We need to limit the amount a person can give to a candidate to $100. We need to prevent any money coming from outside a district or a state to stop the corrupting influence 'foreign' money has over local elections. The average American will never get honest representation until we the people force our government to make these changes. Until then, we are going to continue to have a government controlled by corporate whores. Money IS the root of all evil, and to remove that evil corruption from our political system we are going to have to limit how campaigns are financed.
But now unfortunately, the right wing conservatives (corporate whores) on the supreme court have ruled that they want more corruption in elections. They want corporations to buy every election in the country. They even want foreign corporations to be allowed to corrupt local elections with unlimited amounts of corrupting cash. How can we the people with our modest means ever get someone who is honest and who will represent us when we have corporations outspending us with unlimited amounts of corrupt money?
And while the intelligent people are trying to fight back against the constant onslaught from corrupt corporate influence over our elections, dimwitted conservatives keep fighting to keep the corrupt status quo. Do conservatives realize how infinitely stupid & ignorant they are?
