Our Political process has been hijacked by big corporations, big money and special interest groups. In fact so hasn’t our government. No longer does our government represent “We the People”; it only represents those that can line the pockets of the politicians – of both parties. It is time for the American people to wake up, take back our Constitution and kick out these corrupt ignoramuses and put the Federal Government back in the box where it was originally intended to be when our Founding Fathers gave us the Republic!!
The public has every right to know who is buying our elected officials and which officials are selling their integrity and the best interests of the voters. I advocate 100% disclosure or forfeiture equal to amount of unidentified funds.
Campaign donations are a form of free speech and should be unlimited. That said, the identity of EVERY donor should be documented and disclosed. Large special interest bundlers should provide an attached listing of EVERY individual contribution included in their bundle. Current bundling hides enormous amounts of illegal foreign and special interest donations. We no longer have free elections in the United States.
