    Ah, Mom, you're really dreaming now. Nobody wants to learn anything, they just want to have uninformed opinions.

    You have to remember Ellen, officials are elected by the voters. These people that donate only have one vote, just like you and I. Your problem shouldn't be with the donors. It should be with the voters. The ones that don't vote. The ones that don't learn about their candidate. The ones that don't care and vote for stupid reasons, like "I go hunting with her husbands best friends brother in law". That's where the problem is. Not with campaign finance. Until you can cure voter apathy and voter ignorance, I'm afraid you get what the majority votes for. So get out and get people to vote. Get people to learn about the candidates.
