If the donations are from unidentified donors then they obviously can't it any personal benefit from the donation. The donor may stand up for capitalism as a belief whether an individual, pac or corporations the Supreme Court wisely allowed donations from the above since unions have always been allowed to support candidates and ideas...why not corporations, that are people?

McCain/Feingold needs to be dealt with as well. I know Fran that sometimes we dont agree on things, but I want the power back to the people. I also would like to see politicians tell me what they are going to do, not what the other guy/gal did.

I agree, Brian--saying you're going to eliminate "tax loopholes" but not saying which major ones makes it hard to assess what the candidate actually proposes to do--e.g.--will it be primarily "loopholes" that benefit the middle class such as the mortgage interest deduction, and health care expenses, or will it be corporate expense of moving jobs overseas, or both, or neither. and yes, I agree both parties do it. Of course, it's not possible to list each small detail, but a concrete overview by each side would be helpful.
