Seems like a good idea to me, as far as it goes. However, his concerns about the role of employers and Wall Street make me wonder about his objectivity. Isn’t he also concerned about the massive contributions by unions and other special-interest groups?
I think a true change to our political system would occur if funding was restricted to limited contributions by individuals – including the candidates themselves. Imagine: Political campaigns would have to rely almost exclusively on grass-roots support. Maybe I’m being a little naïve to think something like this might work. I would guess, though, that the only complaints would come from the media as revenues from political ads tanked.
Oh, well. Until something is done, I’ll just continue to rely on caller ID and my TV remote to filter out the seemingly endless political chatter.
