    Well obviously it's going to fail because your politicians will be bought off. Fix it. There should be zero tolerance to corporate donations. If you can not fix it your "democracy"/ government is broken for good.

    It's more fun to spit out things you heard on the television than to answer the points I made to you, isn't it?

    Maybe one of these days when you grow up we can have an actual debate. Maybe.

    ./ignore the corporate appologist. Koch industries is the corporate interest behind the tea party. End of argument.

    EDIT: As a libertarian you should be embarrassed to have that in your sig.

    joke Re: Should America move to federally financed political campaigns?

    I'll enlarge my sig so there's no further confusion:

    "On a Super-Secret Mission to Take Over the World!"

    It's a JOKE.

    1) These aren't *my* politicians.
    2) As I've said before in this thread, the best way to "fix it" isn't for campaign finance reform but rather electoral reform.
    3) Corporate executives are voters too, and deserve their rights too.

    They don't actually discuss anything, and propaganda and lies shouldn't be First Amendment protected, anyway. We need to step away from COnstitution worship anyway.
