People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
I think limiting the money that corporations can give to politicians was a good idea, in theory and in principle. But in practice, the result was the corporations and politicians becoming more shady about campaign funds and campaign platforms.
If raising that limit can provide more transparency, I think it may be worth it. It may be a compromise in principle, but in practice I think we may be better off.
A much better approach is to promptly (like within 24 hours) report on the internet where the money is coming from. Sunshine is a much better disinfectant than regulation because there are always lawyers who can figure out how to game the system.
Just my opinion.
