Do you understand how important
the campaign finance reforms are?
by Brian Downing Quig (1949-2003)
1) Only those qualified to vote for a candidate can contribute;
2) Only individuals are represented so only individuals can contribute (no political action committees (pacs), no unions, no corporations, no non profits etc.);
3) A reasonable maximum contribution that is within the range of the average voter, like $100 not $1,000 or the $2,000 that Senator John McCain wants.
If someone could get behind this it would help usher in TRUE DEMOCRACY. As far as I know no one is behind these reforms.
Editor's note: Consider it done, Brian. R.I.P. You are sorely missed!
