It's a trap no matter what. Unless you are contributing more than that big corporations are to political campaigns, then there will be holes through this thing the next time the public blinks. Government control will allow them to keep the local loop under their control. It might be better in the short term, but in the long term it will be the same. I don't think the FCC action is bad, and in fact I'm glad for the moment, but the long game has always belonged with the corporations. We need to get Aaron Swartz-ish on them. And, until corporations aren't the ones putting candicates on the ballot, we need to keep on them forever. Keep your eye on the FCC.
