President Obama was elected TWICE and he wasn't a millionaire like John McCain or Mitt Romney so, I guess you don't have to have millions to win an election, people (one vote,one person) believe a person's creditable in proving they can get REELECTED!"Thank you President Obama for standing up against the "WACKOS" that are trying to destroy AMERICA"!!

Scott, You should stop parroting talking points and find out what they mean. Contributions to politicians have to be disclosed. It is contributions to private organizations that do not.-enigma

Ever hear about "dark money"?? You need to get out more. If memory serves, the "Chamber of Commerce"(just one of many) was/is swimming in it. Not all from the USA. But what they use for political purposes, is all from the US donors---Honest to God, TRUST them!!!(no opening of books) Again, WHY would you not want to disclose who is donating??? Sorry but IMO, no matter what side of the fence you are on, we all as Americans should demand that other countries are not involved in our elections. Please enlighten me upon how we are currently sure of this. If it doesn't bother you that possibly China for example could be putting money into the process, then never mind.-Scott

Scott, You should stop parroting talking points and find out what they mean. Contributions to politicians have to be disclosed. It is contributions to private organizations that do not. The firing of the Mozilla CEO for a political donation is the best example of why private organizations should not be required to disclose their donor lists. The IRS targeting of donors to private organizations is another good one. If you get all of your news from MSNBC or the AP you may not have heard of those.

My main concern is when a "persons" contributions do not need to be identified. WHY would you not want to be identified?? WHO is the donor?? I believe Americans have a right to know that all money in our elections are from Americans---IMO, other countries should not have a right to be involved in our electoral process. As it is now, Who knows for sure??-Scott

No one ignores you Chuck, that would be quite impossible. Your comments can be taken as comic relief. And also, what is the 'truth'? I know, liberal dogma.

It just makes good sense to ignore nonsense.

Even if I did read the letter you would still ignore me and what I have to say. So nothing has changed.

Maybe we should ignore Chuck and get back to commenting on the letter. It makes more sense than what any politician is saying. Rather than violating free speech and private property rights, which won't help anyway, why don't we remove the graft from government, which will send the unwanted money packing. And the only way to remove the graft is to remove the money. You can't steal what isn't there.

"Don't need to read the letter" - Chuck

Typical liberal stupidity; believing that you can comment on something you haven't read. You should read this letter Chuck. It's actually non-partisan and you might find that you agree with at least part of it, or are you one of these narrow minded morons who looks at the author and decides whether or not you agree without reading it? No need to answer, that's a rhetorical question and we all know the answer already. You made that quite clear in your 8:08 comment.

You think unlimited contributions from the very wealthy is going to make it smaller?

"Campaign contributions are not the problem, but only a symptom of the problem, big government."

I couldn't agree more.

Yes Chuck, You should buy the paper and actually read the letter BEFORE you comment. Of course with you, that probably won't improve the quality of your comments.
