So how do you prevent politicians from from being bought by special interests via campaign contributions ?
You dismissed my solution. What is your solution ?
Perhaps private money should be allowed, and those contributions should be vetted and identified — as now — to the FEC, but the candidates must remain ignorant of who gave them the money ? That doesn’t seem workable, as groups would announce themselves who they’d given money to.
If men have integrity, they will stick to their principles and act on them - regardless of campaign contributions. Government financing of elections is something I do not support. The government that governs least governs best.
