Murray Hill Corporation for Congress
Here's the problem. First, too many people are oblivious blobs, representing themselves as politically astute, yet beholden to news sources controlled and funded by those very same special interests. Second, still more are aware, yet feel that as long as THEIR personal special interest has a dog in the fight, everything will work out to their advantage. Third, and worse still, are those that believe their own personal special interest is NOT a special interest, while everyone else's is.
There's nothing, nada, zip, zilch, NOTHING wrong with having or being a "special interest". Every individual is his/her own special interest. Every corporation, church, professional organization, business organization, social club, and union is a collection of special interests that represent a collection of individual special interests. Fine.
So let's get special interest money out of our so-called democracy. It's time to stop the bickering and name-calling. It's time to re-establish, once and for all, that corporations, churches, professional organizations, business organizations, social clubs, and unions are not persons. It's time for voter financed (publicly financed) elections.
