Can anyone explain why it's OK for a wealthy individual to donate $10,000 to his favorite candidate, but it's not OK for a thousand wage earners to donate $10 each for the same purpose?
Face it: We have a political system that is driven by money. It takes a lot of money to run for office, like it or not. Whoever has money has influence in the government. People making ordinary wages aren't going to have much of an impact individually.
