Campaign Reform

Bah, humbug! That’s what politicians tell us constituents every time we ask for campaign finance reform. Political and corporate welfare seem much more off limits than poverty welfare. Until they do some effective campaign finance reform they are as credible as Scrooge! Talk is cheap.

Politicians, consider, and then act on: the past, when common good was more important than a politician’s personal gain; the present, when party, presidential and congressional campaign fiance ethics are demonstratively lacking and legislators become lobbyists as penance passes; the future (is now), when technology like Web TV considerably reduces the cost and increases the positive two- way content of political campaigns.
