So Grover (not exactly charismatic) creates a pledge, and goes around getting all sorts of Republicans to sign it. But we can't? And Im not talking about the people who dont want to humor this government. Im talking about the ones that want to force their feet to the fire.
Can't happen? Are the people incapable of simply creating a pledge to remove the money from the process? Or is there no will?
Here is what on Michael Moore's site (not a big fan of his, but whatever)...
"I, (name of candidate), promise to make it one of my TOP priorities to introduce and vote for a constitutional amendment that bans all financial contributions to all candidates running for office. I will support legislation that publicly funds all elections and legislation that bans lawmakers from working as lobbyists after they leave office. If I do not do this, I promise not to run for re-election."
I think this may be a little to light on the rhetoric...
And if they shrug their shoulders at you, what do we do then?
