In this day and age of the Internet and social media in general, I don’t see much actual need for rounding up so much money to get a message out. It’s nothing but a way to bribe, IMHO. Anyone can get a website and it’s pretty cheap.
This is one area where the term “both sides” certainly applies. I hate that term though, it’s mostly used a cop out and I digress.
I’d work on how we finance these things if we want to get serious about stemming corruption in government.
Another thing I’d do is limit the “election season”. Most other countries do that. In the UK, it’s like six weeks or something like that. Ahhh, wouldn’t that be nice!?!!? Can we do that here?
