new people, new ideas.

seriously, imagine the good we could do without every single fucking office holder looking over their shoulder and making sure their major campaign contributors approve to the vote that s/he is about to cast.

the whole process is disgusting. a typical freshman HoR member spends his/her entire first term raising money for their second term election. how sick is that?

oh crap, and just imagine how quickly 3d parties would become viable if everyone played on the same field. holy shit.

imagine the confidence you could have in your CongressCritter knowing that he was actually voting his/her conscience and not voting to support the agenda of his biggest campaign contributor.

This part I agree with. The problem is that it won't change. Nothing will change unless you do something drastic like not allow campaigning at all.

I'd be in favor of no campaigns at all. It'd be better to make a website that each candidate can contribute documents on subjects at hand and have debates. Remove all the bullshit and stick to facts and ideas.

But that will never happen. The system is completely ass****ed until major change happens.
