For our Children: Campaign Finance Reform
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
There are many voices advocating for changing the way our government operates, some are even calling for violent revolution and that call for violence scares me, not just for myself, but for our children. I agree that our current system needs to be changed, but that change can happen from within and without violence. However, the only way to peacefully change the way our current system of government operates is to eliminate the influence of corporations, PACs, and wealthy individuals. We need a way for everyone's voice to be heard, not just those of the 2 major parties and their allies. Therefore, I propose a bill, or possibly a constitutional amendment that would restructure the way our campaigns are financed. If we do so it would ensure that the halls of power are not strictly influenced by those who hold the purse strings, but rather by WE THE PEOPLE!
1- Businesses will not be allowed to contribute to any federal election campaign,
2- Limit individual contributions to a one time only amount of 200 dollars.
3- NO Politcal Action Commitee contributions.
4- Require all FCC licensed outlets to broadcast debates which include ALL candidates, not just those from the 2 major parties, free of charge.
5- NO MORE LOBBIES
We must hold our congress people responsible for serving the country, the entire country, not just those who can financially support them. My fear is that if we cannot enact this reform soon our country will be hopelessly divided and descend into violence and injustice for all.
