    Its possible, but it requires a change in the voting system along with states taking their elections. I don't know how a state can do that legally with the Citizens United decision though :/

    because of the freedom it gives to Unions? nah, all that really changed de facto with Citizens United is that they and corporations no longer have to funnel their money through PAC's.

    well that has long been my hope for the current administration - that it would serve as a kind of immunization.

    No, what also changed was being able to donate an unlimited amount of funds anonymously

    All I did is read two things about him and watch one speech so maybe Im wrong but like I said in another thread, no, absolutely not, he would definitely be part of the problem and not part of the solution.

    eh, that, too, was already a de facto reality, if you were willing to take the time to do so. and the SCOTUS only said that donations could be legitimately be kept anonymous against state demands if there could be a reasonable case made that exposing that list would open up supporters to assault and intimidation. It specifically overturned Citizens United claim that it had the right to keep it's list private, saying that they had not demonstrated any such thing.
