Campaign Finance Reform – Ginger Lemon Ceylon

July 19, 2007

Political campaigns collect money for getting votes. What if we eliminated the middle man? What if all the campaign donations for a candidate were split up and paid out evenly to the people who voted for that candidate?

How different would the elections be? Is bribing the voters overtly better or worse than manipulating them with that money? In the very least it might significantly improve voter turn-out.
