    i'll make it easier for you; here is the fourth amendment:

    Fourth Amendment | U.S. Constitution | LII / Legal Information Institute

    now, please point out the violation you insist would result
    don't run from the question. answer it. or fold your tent
    You actually believe that people don't have a right to make private donations to political campaigns?

    you keep evading the question. defend your position and explain why such rules would violated the 4th amendment

    just want to keep pointing that out
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    So you ant to be able to exercise your political rights in the dead of a dark night underneath a hood of anonymity so to speak without having to explain anything to your fellow citizens?

    Why would you need that sort of protection?

    We are under no obligation to explain anything to my fellow citizens, regarding my political beliefs, nor how I excercise them.

    What you want next? Open ballots, so we know who voted for who?

    Nobody said you had to explain your political beliefs. believe what you want to believe and take it to the grave with you. Nobody is telling you otherwise.

    It's about transparency in government. Do you really think it would be a viable system if anyone could anonymously give any amount of cash to public employees? That's basically how it worked around the turn of the 20th century, and they changed the rules for very good reasons.
