Political Campaigns

In the ideal political campaign the politician should never say anything bad about his opponent.  He should only say what his positions are on the issues.  The job of the candidate is to sell his product, himself, to the voters.

In the ideal political campaign the politician should never send his minions to disrupt the opponents rallies.  In the free market of ideas we should be free to compare ideas without the distraction of people shouting and protesting.

In the ideal political campaign every dime contributed to the candidate would be made public.  The name and city of the donor and the amount they have given should be public knowledge.  There should be no limit on how much money an individual can give.  All money should be given by individuals, not unions, businesses, or other organizations; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
