I believe that we could take care of a whole bunch of government problems with one very simple solution: Contributions to political campaigns should only be permitted by registered voters in the area represented by a candidate. Money for senators and representatives would be restricted to the registered voters of their states for state senators and representatives down to the district levels. Largely in America, we have championed representative politics. But that is no longer the case.

Let’s get rid of the bigmoney support and get back to having politicians who are committed to the people of their areas because they are the ones who contribute to their campaigns.
