I say people/corporations should be able to put as much money as they want towards as many candidates as they want and they do not have to report any of it.
Only morons fall for political advertising - and I don't care about them. They are sheep - useless, irrelevant (no matter how many there are of them). And most of these knuckle heads are ridiculously partisan anyway and wouldn't vote for anyone outside 'their' party no matter what advertisements say.
People with properly working brains/emotions decide for themselves and political advertising makes no appreciable difference to them.
So make it all limitless and straightforward.
Anybody that thinks campaign reform is in ANY way a remotely viable solution to the pathetic state of politics in America, imo, simply does not understand the problem.
BTW - I have never given a dime to any political campaign.
Frankly, I think you have to be staggeringly naive to throw your money away in such a fashion.
