City of London ( the Financial District ) is closed at weekends. Empty streets = pointless exercise.

>>Currently politicians are more dependent on people with lots of money because they need lots of money just to pay to maybe keep their job when the next election rolls around. So long as they are forced to spend more then they make in order to keep their job, they are necessarily corrupt.<<<

So we agree on the problem but not the solution. See we aren't so different after all.

I kind of agree with you about what how much power the government has. The primary function of the government should be keeping people with lots of power from drating over the people with little.

>>>Addendum: If it is just you talking politics that is fine. Radio ads and TV commercials would be the main target. A candidate with a $20 budget should be able to compete with a candidate with a $20 million budget.<<<

So whomever can put together the biggest movement wins? Sounds like money still rules to me.

So news casters can sway the public by the way they report the news and candidates can not respond? The same for writers and actors and other entertainment media? Sounds like you are just giving the power to someone else. Nope I still like our system, or what it was before the latest regs. All have freedom of speech about anything at anytime.

If you are so concerned why don't you go after this a different way. Take as much power as possible away from the government. Make it as small as possible. Taxes as flat as possible. Spending as small as possible, and regs as few as possible. Then who would want to waste money buying a
