the reason that those sums need to be raised are because of all of us. Expensive television ads sway the public

Bingo!!
1) Cap the price AND numbers of political ads per election.
The broadcasters's can charge more to the others who want to
advertise. If they don't like it, well tough! What is they gonna do
about it? Moan and bitch? I say: "Snif!"

2) NO contributions by ANY group. And Yes! that include unions, foreign
govs, non-profit, Sierra Club and what have you. Nada! Zippo! Rien
du tout!

Why should we let other decide for us? Why should allow anyone, but us (the individual) to have more influence over those who govern on our behalf? It'll happen only if we decide that comfort, cooconing and plain laziness is better than taking charge.

For the people, by the people.
