The Alternative to Getting Big Money Out of Politics

This last week, we were unable to amend the Constitution to overturn ‘Citizens United.’ Big monied interests can still donate unlimited funds to political campaigns.

But! There is an alternative approach to achieving clean and fair elections. If you can’t beat them, join them.

You need to get the people back in. You can’t just pay attention to getting the big money out. You got to have everyday people have a voice and a stake in politics…. There are several states that have put in place clean election systems, fair election systems, that are working.

    JoAnn,
    Campaign financing should go all the way: ban every last red penny from elections, ban all expenditures, all advertising, and the only communication between candidates and voters comes from debates.

      I like your idea. And, it would save everyone a lot of time and money!
