As long as our political system is run as it is now, we will always have a 1%. The rich and powerful will always be pulling the strings to control their many puppets in congress.
Isn't it time to cut the strings and free our representatives of the influence of the one percent? To do this we must ban all private political contributions from all sources. We must ban the existence of all packs, super packs and committees to reelect the dirtbag.
We should ban all political advertising except for the advertisements from the candidates themselves. They would have a government supplied political election fund that would be a uniform amount for all qualified aspirants.
Of course this will never be enacted by a puppet House or Senate who have too much to loose.
If enough public support for this were to be generated then perhaps something would happen. Toward this end, I would contribute.
