  •  Take back elections by eliminating donors altogeth (3+ / 0-)

    er. Establish a national election fund. Eliminate sitting pols franking . Perhaps make cable companies provide one political channel for every group to have time on to present their case... their solutions, their view of the problems, etc... Then have analysis similar to the CBO of the costs and effects of every proposal. A true public airing of reality not fantasy being delivered by corporate news with its talking heads getting rich being selfish pinhead asses and the profiteers directing the feed lot animals into blind corners where they can feed.

    Stop letting elections be about visceral emotional hooks. Personally I am getting tired of the level of fear and nonsense and hysteria around politics any more. It seems that the corporations have found fear sells more air time and drives expenditures to oust the evil other.

    Fear is the Mind Killer...
