Campaign Finance

Courtesy of TAPPED here is an interesting proposal for taking the big money donors out of the campaign contribution game.

"About 100 million voters cast ballots in the 2000 election. If they also had a chance to 'vote' with their 50 patriot dollars, they would have sent $5 billion flowing into the political marketplace, overwhelming the $3 billion private dollars spent by all candidates for all federal offices. Even if no further restrictions were imposed on private fundraising, patriot dollars would enable ordinary Americans to reclaim a large role in shaping the course of campaigns."
