One thing I think would go a long way to helping our democracy would be the public financing of political campaigns. If our representatives didn’t have to solicit bribes to fund their campaigns, they would be less subject to corruption. It won’t make politicians perfect, but I’d rather politicians pander to voters than to corporate donors. David Sirota has a post on Kos about this, and there’s this group, Just $6, that is fighting for this issue.
