In 2015, a landmark political win was made when Californians decided to vote for clean money in politics. While some people may have been confused about what was happening, informed voters weren’t. One side of the issue was this:
Clean money in politics. Give the people an honest election where there is an even playing field. Where money doesn’t buy votes, but the best candidate wins.
Then there were reality based views where people claimed the following was more accurate, not wishful thinking:
Money is a necessary resource for any real candidate to get exposure in an election. Take the Presidential election for example. If a person with $0.00 tries to compete, he won’t be able to buy TV ads. He won’t be able to afford trips around the country and so on. Much like advertising any product in the world today or ever, money acts as a valuable resource for getting exposure. Ideals are important, but without funding they go nowhere. And even a world without money in politics can’t actually exist, it’s a fantasy. There is a pseudo money-less politics, but it has to come from somewhere, and someone has to decide who receives it. Creating a monopoly of political funding. Perhaps even more skewed than what people see today.
Regardless, we’re here again to bring you coverage and interesting takeaways from this years political frenzy. Stay tuned.
