RE: The GBPG Runs a Negative Attack on Campaign Spending

Do they even know? Or is this just an excuse for another mindless blathering editorial for the sake of righteous pontification?
Not that you don't know the answer to this question, but they just love to moan about it for the sake of moaning and whining.

All of these righteous government do-gooders completely ignore the one avenue to ridding the political system of 'corruption' or 'undue influence.'

If the government wasn't so ginormous, and had so much control over so many dollars, there wouldn't be nearly as much interest in grabbing power or influence over decision makers.

If there wasn't so much at stake when it comes to governmental control, no one would be putting as many millions of dollars into politics as they do.

But you won't see a single one of them arguing for smaller government, fewer governmental programs, less taxation authority, or anything like that.

Putting more controls on campaigns or campaign dollars does nothing to rid the system of the incentive to control. It simply makes those who want power look for other ways to control it. The only way to rid the system of the "nightmarish" dollar amounts, as the editorial deems it, is to rid the government of the government's undue control and influence.
