Money in politics is a symptom of wealth inequality, if you think laws are going to prevent it, you're naive. That said, I support the Wolf-Pac and what they're attempting. I just don't think it will make that big a difference. We need to treat the disease that is wealth inequality and then money in politics won't be an issue.

This literally makes no sense. There are rich and poor people, therefore politicians are corrupt.

We must make our choice. We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.

The preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.
