    You should think for a moment how futile this would be.

    If candidates were limited like this no problem except that then the superpacs and other wealthy contributers would simply use the massive financing independently.

    In other words instead of giving 10 million to a candidates campaign you spend the 10 million on your own private campaign in support of the same candidate.

    There is always a way around everything, isn't there, even a way to keep politicians from being bought.
