Unfortunately,and with sadness...I have to agree with you.At least in the political climate we find ourselves in now.We knew when we floated the idea of removing the money,it was a non starter,at least this year.And what we were really after,was not so much to do away with individual donations to candidates that a person supports,what we wanted was the opening up of state and federal congressional races to a much wider and more diverse range of candidates.I know you agree,that as it stands now,the main qualification for running for elected office is ones ability to raise staggering amounts of cash.(read:bribes)Realistically,and that's what we have to focus on,reality,we would like to see some ideas floated along these lines,and see if we can at least get a national conversation going.(I'm notorious for being optimistic when it comes to the people of our country).It doesn't even have to contain thousands upon thousands of people,at first,that might,maybe, come later.We hope.
Anyway,it was just an article we felt like putting out there,and seeing what,if any,response we got. We now have the grand total of ONE response.And you and I communicating,well,that counts as a conversation,right?
Thanks for reading it,I like to have your feedback.I fear you are a tad bit more realistic than I.Must be that engineer thing coming out in you.Take care...TTYL
