I have - they should be e-liminated, not limited.
Ok. Fine. That works too. But you're missing the point.
The issue I have with this entire thing is they want to use *my* tax money to buy ads for politicians I don't support.
Your point: Well, that has been tried, reducing tax you pay being used for stuff you don't like - try holding back the % used for war spending if you don't like it and see what happens. Looks like a hassle.
The tax system and government should be trustworthy, apparently they are not. Why is a good question. Not sure who the bigger crooks - corporate or government head-hanchos and who is doing more harm to the greater part of a population?
With Lessing - let's see what happens if he can avoid the ego trip and big head from getting Step 1 and Step 2 in his game together and stick to his plans, it may fail or not. Maybe he comes from another angle with more smarts for the better of normal people. Crowd-sourcing and PAC may be new and disappointment is probably big in people about what is happening with no real remedy in sight. With the small amounts of $ 3 and $ 4 spending on campaigns - everyone seems to be doing it now and there is a limit to exploit this.
Maybe he makes written and public contracts with politicians to hold them liable on their promises or better have commitments they later stick to in order to get funded. Sure is better than the humble/mumble backroom stuff going on right now.
It will show.
