Yes. Volunteers are certainly critical, but money buys elections. It is proven to be effective. As you know, media now practices the disgusting habit of reporting how much money candidates have raised as the key indicator of a candidate's potential. They don't count volunteer hours, or volunteers. They count money. Candidates count money. Elected officials spend much of their time raising money. Money. Money. Money. Money buys votes more than anything else.[Do you think money should be the only resource that is limited under the law? Or are you legally going to punish and restrict one type of resource (money) while allowing unlimited usage of other resourecs (like ones time)?
No, I don't see why there should be.Should there be similar limits on the amount of volunteer time that a campaign can utilize or can be done in support of a camapaign?
