The Solution September 8, 2006

The coruption in government is widely known, and one solution to remove a major cause of coruption is to ban all private money from campaigns. This is not a new idea, I have mentioned it before as well as others, but there was always a single glaring flaw. The idea is that when someone wants to run for office they are given a set amount of federal (or state or county depending on race) funding along with a set amount of free publicity in the form of TV time and Radio time. This also means that Debates could be mandated. It also means that having billionaire friends doesn’t give you an advantage. It also means that you can’t buy politicians. The flaw is how do you keep the number of people running reasonable? Well there is already a statute that if your a memeber of a party which gets more than 50,000 votes in a gubernational election then your automaticly on the ballot. We can just use that same system. We will have to leave some way to allow new parties to gain the size required to get on the ballot. Maybe just say that for third parties no corporate money and no donations over $100? There are solutions and this was a big piece of the puzzle that just landed in my lap. Of course there are few in washington who would be willing to cut off their own source of money.
