Campaign Finance Reform
My petition is for election sanity. The amount of special interest money has made the United States election process a joke. Let's have some creative ideas on creating Campaign Finance Reform. Level the playing field to enable anyone with the proper amounts of endorsement signatures run for office, both state and federal. This would eliminate obscene campaign war chests and stress public debates over negative radio and TV commercials that just muddy the waters. The result would eliminate all the time candidates spend away from their jobs to raise money for re-election. They could do much more work to enhance the lives of their constituents instead of eating lousy chicken and making deals with corporations for sponsorship. You will NEVER hear a current member of congress suggest this. We need to inform the American people of this concept and get new blood running for office that are not in anyone's pocket ... but yours!! All ideas welcome.
