Elections should be 100% free, not for the wealthy

Q: Do you support stricter limits on political campaign funds?

A: Support. Elections should be 100% free. The nation's choice should not be limited to the wealthiest or best fundraisers but should include all good candidates willing to step up and do the job. Money needs to be removed from the equation. No public official should be essentially owned by the highest contributor. All campaign funds and donations should be publically posted that includes even trivial things like lunches and gifts.

Ranked Voting and instant Run off Voting

We need Ranked Voting and instant Run off Voting. The airwaves belong to the people and the people's voices should be heard, and should guide the content.
