    It’s really good that our pols are very well funded, and of course the more private money they get, the more we know who is being served. Years of an average americans income spent on a political campaign does not lead to quality service, as is obvious. It leads to excess capital in the pockets of so-called representatives. So Al has four million. Others have more. All of it is wasted and our elections are compromised to the gills. So, if we want “free and fair” elections we’ll make the funding a level playing field, taking corporate and one percent dollars out completely. Well have all media outlets broadcasting debates for weeks ahead of voting day, as the cost of doing business in America. We’ll not do ths of course. Money has bought it’s place in our system, and unfortunately history teaches us that, at this point, only violence seems to have an influence on change.
