    Well, well. I came on here expecting to see typical Willow Tree trolling and bullshit, and I am pleasantly surprised -- overwhelmed, even!

    YES, that is the one issue: money in politics, corruption of the government by campaign donations, and the fact that we have a "bought Congress." Until that changes, nothing else can change.

    Thank you for the link.

    He wants the influx of corporate money to politicians to stop and in turn to end the legislative clusterfuck that provides more for those who financially sustain them than to those that they are supposed to represent and fight for. What's so hard to understand? If you were opposed to the wall street bailouts, than you should agree with this. He clearly states that it's been occurring under both parties, which it has. Injecting partisan politics into the issue is what makes it hard for some to see.

    I'm with ya 100% on that. Large special interests groups are only acting favorably towards themselves.

    Yes. Every campaign finance reform proposal has always included union money. If he doesn't make a point of talking about unions, it's because union financial influence on elections is trivial by comparison to corporate influence, but yes, any remedy would apply to every organization equally.
