I believe that we need a constitutional amendment limiting the size of campaign contributions from any and all sources.

I also believe that all contributions should have to be reported and open for public review, at least those contributions made above $500.00 or so per person or group.

I think that this could go a long ways toward eliminating the corrupting influences of our political institutions and laws by special interest groups.

What say you?

1) Yep

2) Nope

3) No change

4) I got a better idea

1) Yep

But then again, I also agree with this: //www.city-data.com/forum/polit...nd-please.html

Well I can't see how anyone except Government and Corporations could argue with either one of those...

BUT they will destroy the country and the world before that was allowed to happen

Chill out, PLEASE, chielgirl! I don't want "a thread to my topic", I was merely providing a link to one that already exists (not mine, btw), and is quite relevant to this topic.

Honestly!

Did you note option #4?

First of all, we should never have let this ruling pass, even if it was by the Supreme Court.
