Do not intervene
Yes, do intervene
The amount of money we spend on politics is ridiculous and sad. I remember when Mitt Romney was in Ohio during Superstorm Sandy asking for money and people were donating cans of Campbell's soup, meanwhile, you know his financial backers were pouring in billion dollar donations for him to run the campaign.
Meg Whitman spend 140 million of her own money on a failed campaign. All that money wasted. Just think how many storm victims and how many people she could have helped with 140 million.
It's disgusting how expensive political campaigns are.

Well, they didn't light all that money on fire to send out smoke signals. TV and Radio people were paid, small town and big town printers were employed. Mechanics and logistics people benefited. The list goes on and on.
The fact that people are swayed by big messages, rather than taking the time to educate themselves on the issues and candidates should be the biggest concern.
