How would you contribute to the political process if..

you had limitless amount of money?

My choice would be to start a national newspaper with independent editorials, reporting on issues or critiquing issues them and politicians who'd normally would not get touched by the MSM. I would need no advertising as I would have of course, unlimited funds. However, in the event I did win the lottery, I would add some advertising and also add a national and regional component of highlighting good news development, focus on the good work of non profits and have the journalists engage in actual 'journalism'. Details at this point do not matter of course since I do not have any mula [g].

So what would you do?

What a great question!

I think I'd put that money toward pushing campaign finance reform. More and more I feel like campaign contributions and lobbyist expense accounts purchase our representatives, leaving the typical voter feeling disenfranchised.

But I like your idea, too.

I'd quit my job and go work on the front lines.

Maria, you would! But then, you already are and have in your own way (work wise).. plus..you did trench work during ACL so you have some bragging rights to having been active regardless of the mula or not..[s]

A limitless amount of money? Oh my.. First would be single payer health care for everyone. The major cause of bankruptcies even now is medical bills. I also like your idea of adding more real news to the mix but I think buying Fox from Rupert Murdoch and throwing Roger Ailes out might be the best start. Campaign finance reform is also a wonderful idea but perhaps we could build giant rockets and send all the lobbyists to help the neo-cons colonize Venus. There's enough hot air there to make them all feel at home.
