I don't think corporations should donate money, but I also don't think government should donate money or benefits to corporations. They both work together to get bigger and more powerful. Together they run the show and we don't really have much of a say in it.
if the corp. gives money you then become the employee of the corp.
Yeah that's basically how it has been for a long time. Every president for the past thirty years has been funded by Goldman Sachs. Really we have just one political party. Both parties are puppets of one small group of men, working for $ & powe
If, as the Supreme Court has ruled, the Super PACs can exist in their present form, I want Congress to pass a law limiting the size of any one donor's contributions to the level at which individual citizens' donations have equal clout with donors choosing to donate to a Super PAC.
Not a bad idea. Maybe we can get some of the money under control.
Government was never supposed to be this powerful. The Constitution was written to restrain the Govt. If we give the Govt too much power then they have too much to auction off to corporations. Reduce Govt power and get rid of corporate funds.
Is Corporate Money Good For Elections? Corporate money funding Government creates monopolies. There is a very easy answer to solving these, If we.. read more
To allow corporate money to flow unaccounted into campaigns is quite simply, a means of corrupting government. Money buys favor which ultimately leads to horrid legislation that benefits corporations, their special interests and most assuredly not the real people who will be living in a plutocratic society.
As seen on documentaries and evening news, corporate donations have a big effect upon who gets elected and the motivation usually hinges on what the newly elected man can do for the corporation upon his or her election into that office. Unfortunately, this seems to be the way of the world in which we struggle. Sometimes the attention brought to this is effective in controlling it, but certainly not always. As history so well exemplifies, no system is perfect and some, not even close.
The system is getting worse with the SCOTUS legislating their political ideologies from the highest bench in the nation.
Until we regain our footing and try to be a country once more these things (money) will make the decisions for us.
Buying an election is wrong. The only good thing is their money is being pumped back into the American economy. But Super-Pacs are still very new and it is predicted this will be a billion dollar election. What makes that really scary is what about the 2016 election. Honest fund raisers will no longer be needed nor will the general public opinions be of value to the candidates.
It looks like candidates will no longer have supporters or backers, but will have sponsors. I can see it now. "Nike's State of the Union" or " Budweiser; the official sponsor of the Inauguration".
Take government powers away and they have nothing to offer the corporations. Corporations would have to compete in the market place and wouldn't be able to pay for benefits from government if government couldn't offer anything.
Why don't they put some of the money into jobs?
corporation donate millions while a person at the most a grand. corporation get PRIVATE MEETING WITH THE POLITICIAN while people go to a town meeting or send letters, corporation get CONGRESSIONAL BACKING TO DRAIN MONEY OUT OF THE PEOPLE TO THE CORPORATION, for the people, we being taken advantage of, but to the corporation and our politician, WE ARE SUCKERS THAT BORN EVERY MINUTE..
No. In a perfect world, we would have publicly funded elections in which each candidate is given the same amount of money. It would then come down to the quality of the candidate and his/her ideas rather than the amount of noise that person could make. Political campaigns are a colossal waste of time and money, and they somehow manage to communicate little in the way of actual information.

Whether Corporate money or "Soros" money we, unfortunately, sell our electoral power to the highest bidder and our election results reflect those choices. The strange thing is that while "counting the money" we still expect the election results to somehow....be good!!...very strange indeed.
