The constitution allows for states to petition for an ammendment to the constitution. We could separately work each of our statehouses to propose something similar to the following ammendment.
1) Money is not Speech. 2) People running for Federal and State Elections may not spend more than $1M dollars on their campaign 3) Corporations may not contribute money directly or indirectly to campaigns
Seems like if everybody campaigned on the internet, the costs would approach zero. It's the campagn ads which distort the truth, keep people from trying to figure out what's really going on, AND greatly effect the election.
