What’s the Problem with Money in Politics? | Represent.us

Money in politics… “It’s not about Right or Left, it’s about right or wrong.”

“We asked Martin Sheen a question and got out the cameras. His unscripted response shocked us.” ~ Represent.us

Don’t give up. Together, we can “break The Establishment.” We can end political corruption, one city, one state, at a time… until the force of our will converges on Washington D.C.

    It really is a matter of right or wrong.

    I hope you keep us updated on what this group is doing. Action is what will give the USA hope.

      I sure will, Honey. The groups latest success: They helped South Dakota put a state-wide Anti-Corruption Act on the 2016 election ballot. It passed! The SD Republican Party is already trying to overturn it. (They have no shame!)

    Funny that Sheen is so against Trump, as he showed when he campaigned the electors to change their vote. One of Trump’s key goals is to end corruption in politics. This is what drain the swamp means. One of the arguments he consistently made against Clinton was that she is corrupt.

      Ending political corruption is certainly one of Trump’s stated goals.

      A question for you, Philosophy, if you don’t think that Big Money has a corrupting influence on the American political system… what corruption are you concerned about?

        You can call me Dan. I actually do think Big Money has a corrupting influence on the political system. That’s why I’m confused by Sheen’s thinking. Why would one support Clinton if one is concerned about big money?

      • JoAnn Chateau

        Hi, Dan. I can only guess about Sheen – maybe he thought Clinton was a “lesser of two evils. The only presidential candidates who were boldly anti-corruption were Sanders, Lessig, and Stein. Only Stein made it to the general election.

        Trump engaged in the corrupt big-money political system long before he ran for president – when he made large donations to various candidates, including Hillary Clinton. How do the briber and bribee differ? I never took his “clean the swamp” claims seriously.

        In any case, Represent.us tries very hard to be non-partisan. In Tallahassee, FL they brought together left-leaning Dems and Tea Partiers to pass the first city Anti-Corruption Act in 2014.
