When everything has to be publicly disclosed, and SuperPacs can't run ads or do anything else, all you essentially need is a watchdog to keep track of the campaign contributions, accounting for all money spent and donated. Any discrepancies would be the result of an immediate investigation.
No more fancy dinners. No more catering to lobbyists. Small single donations. That's it, and make a requirement that all who give contributions have to be American Born legal citizens, NO dual citizenship, and currently be residing in the United States unless in the military.
Mitt Romney bought this nomination. You all know it. At least Obama had grass roots support on his way through the ranks.
Obama rasied 1 billion dollars to become potus not seeing the problem by the way how about getting him to disclose his doners?
Ha. Do you think your speech is equal to that of Mitt Romney or Obama?
Power of speech is dictated by money.
Money controls speech and can stifle or silence it.
I can turn on the television everyday, i don't see poor people or middle class people dictating their views on the news.
Do you have your own media empire? How about an unheard of 30 min show? Anything? Can you run hundreds of thousands of ads promoting any idea you want?
In a capitalist country, power of speech (and freedom to use it) is far greater for those who have more than those who have nothing.
Now, which current laws are allowing this and what needs to be re-legislated ?
Poor people get heard all the time Dempcrats make their living off it so they can make their living off their Government checks.
Citizens United needs to be reversed to get rid of the SuperPacs. Of course, that won't happen with this conservative stacked court, that is why many are proposing a Constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood.
