The law that was passed by the public and undercut by the state government was the respresent.us legislation talked about here:

"Corruption is Legal in America"

"How to fix America's Corrupt political system"

They finally got it through in this one state, and then the government pulls the rug out from under the people. This is simply unacceptable in what is supposedly a democracy or a representative republic.

This is why, fundamentally, things will never change for the better until it all comes crumbling down.

Well, for progress to be made, people have to side with progresses (regardless to party status (and I don't mean choosing just between R's and D's)). Unfortunately, so many people in this country are single issue voters or party loyalists. Let's see if SD kicks out all those guys that voted for the repeal of their law. I doubt it.

its been tried multiple times, the second is only effective as an offensive measure if the public is not retarded.

This bill did nothing to stop or address corruption, and had more to do with reinforcing it. You sound like you WANT a group of state appointed cronies to give out state money to campaign for office to their friends.

Read the bill you literal fucking retard. A group of cronies giving state money to any political candidate they like is a fucking retarded idea.

I fear no real change will ever come about in this nation without great bloodshed.

Maybe, maybe not. But it's true that "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable." There's not many legitimate avenues for change remaining, those in power have seen to that... there's still a few things left to try
