You're absolutely right -- both parties have accepted large corporate donations. I actually voted for the two Republicans the last time around. It just so happens that the way things are stacking up in New Mexico, the Republicans are the least likely to take any action changing SEC oversight, and this is partly because they are taking their lead
from the Bush administration, which in my opinion is doing next to nothing. Bush and his buddies (not least of all Kenneth Lay) would rather have everyone focus on a war in Iraq so they can get more Republicans in office in November. Which is why I'm not voting for them. But the Democrats need to get their act together, too. I may be in a minority right now, but in my opinion, the U.S. stock market is a whole lot more important to this country's future than Saddam Hussein.
