Dan Jennings Posted about 2 years ago Shift political campaigns from spending money on self promotion/mudslinging instead on funding social programs. Very true. Thanks for pointing that out, Xavier. Right now, those who court the media (or just outright pay for coverage) do get the eyeballs of the voters. Unfortunately, they don't have the voter's heart. If the candidate was so overt as to contribute to these corporate (or NGO) interests, would the voter have more information to decide if the candidate supports or opposes the ideals of the voter? Or would it just muddy the water more?
