    How about, no restrictions on donations, from individuals, corporations? How about no blackout periods regarding ads? How about no 'fairness doctrine' yelps?

    yeah is it really too much to suggest that candidates can accept as much money from whomever wants to contribute as long as they fully disclose who it is so the people can decide whether they are getting favors? it seems pretty simply concept.

    but no lets restrict things, that way while money wont be out of politics we will just have hoops to jump through to get to the same amount.

    ridiculous.

    Also, on a more personal note i think anyone who would joke about suicide has some issues.
