The solution is simple:
Our elected representatives must follow their oaths.
Almost all campaign contributions come to Incumbents - from Special Interests of one form or another
They are EXPECTING to influence the making of LAWS - LAWS that will make THEM rich - at YOUR expense.
An Honest candidate will NOT accept Donations from any Special or Big Corporate Interests -
Nothing that has any “Strings” attached.
He will not want "even the appearance" of an obligation to anybody or anything
other than to His Constituents and the GA & US Constitutions.
There are many people and organizations trying to REFORM these issues
to eliminate corruption and bring us transparency in government
so "We The People" can vote with confidence -
as INFORMED voters,
rather than DECEIVED ones.
We should support ALL of these REFORM efforts - here are a few - check them out:
Elections sold -------- Politicians bribed -------- Money controlling our government.

Needed Reforms of Campaign Finance Laws
Excerpted from the book Extortion by Peter Schweizer
Peter wrote 2 books:
Extortion : How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets
Throw Them All Out : How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich Off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals,
and Cronyism. They have passed LAWS that make THEIR actions LEGAL!
Yet, if You, Me or anybody else does it - WE GO TO PRISON.
The American Anti-Corruption Act will get money out of politics, so The People can get back in.
The Act was crafted by former Federal Election Commission chairman Trevor Potter
See/Download: Full Provisions of The Act and its Constitutionality.
Campaign Finance & Fund-Raising are perhaps the biggest "enabling factors" to corruption in our political system.
