2. i don't understand how out of state/district money is allowed.

i mean, i get that it's "because, money".

but what's the supposed theory behind letting a billionaire in los angeles spend a ton of money influencing an election in one of georgia's house districts, e.g.?

we recognize that letting someone outside the u.s. influence an election here is a huge no-on, but why doesn't that logic work at the state level? same logic, i think. the people of that district in georgia should be able to determine their own representative without being swamped by the opinions of people in far-away states and districts.

again, yeah. i know. it's allowed because, money.
