$250 per elected official or candidate from any one person, AND eliminating ANY organizational form of contributions what so ever, are the single most important steps in this struggle. Neutralize the present system by removing ALL contributions from lobbyists and the big money contributions which create an environment of corruption. That is the first step. Everything else is details to be hammered out within the new system. That is the only way to restore the importance of the ballot. If you want to Lobby an elected official, take a number and STAND IN LINE. Any official that is caught shaving points, fixing the race, throwing the fight gets banned for life from elected office AND goes to jail, along with those who paid them off.
As Jack Abramoff expressed on 60 minutes, until the systems changes, the corruption just gets more sophisticated. Who should know better than Him?
Got a better first step? Frame the Image.. American Flags.. Control the conversation = We ALL Love America… We want the broken government fixed….. Constitutional Convention to rid the election process of the dirty money that furthers the agendas of the 1%.
