I agree with you on that one completely. I believe all parties should be funded publically using a representative formula. Allowing Big Business to buy influence through campaign finacing is something the left has fought persistently. I'll use Enron as an example again. It donated money in the millions to BOTH parties in the states so that the idea of publicly owned electricity stayed off the radar. It worked and now there are neglected power grids and impossibly high energy prices. That all goes to prove what I was saying about getting active in politics. Had enough people spoke out against for profit utilities the blackouts could have been avoided.
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...
