There should be an online website that would post contributions DAILY--not submitted in monthly or quarterly reports to the FEC. Limits would dictated, but could be quite generous--as long as we know which politicians are getting money from whom.

Then, let the chips fall where they may....political accountability for candidates just might shame the bastards into doing their real jobs instead of prostituting themselves to the highest bidders.
