  •  But public financing of elections... (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Is just another subsidy to the media conglomerates.  Instead of public financing of elections, why don't we just cut out the middle man?  For each public election, have a series of time blocks set aside for campaigning.  This could be a series of debates, or if a debate isn't practical, statements from candidates on a certain issue.  

    Then, mandate that every single network show all of these public statements.  And on the day of the election, carry an election day reminder every fifteen minutes.
