Campaign Reform. Because the Supreme Court favored Citizens United, unlimited amounts of corporate money is now permitted to flood campaigns. This flood of $$$$ through SuperPACs throws MILLIONs onto the candidate of their choice, effectively buying our Congressmen and by so doing corrupting our Democracy form of government. The solution is to radically reform how we campaign: limited timeframe to 3-4mos; BANning private money COMPLETEly, replacing it with EQUAL, PUBLIC funds and AIRTIME per candidate. This eliminates the fact that only millionaires can afford to be a candidate and, eliminates the fact that elected officials spend most of their time fundraising for the next election. By doing away with private money donations, any qualified citizen can run, producing higher quality individual candidates. No party can demand its members take an Oath which contradicts or compromises the Oath of Office taken in Congress, swearing allegiance to US, not a Party. This is how we take back our Democracy for We The People.
