I am not holding out much hope for the continuation of the Arizona Clean Elections law. I have no doubt that the majority in Citizens United will strike down the Arizona Clean Elections law and hand the Republicans and their allies another victory in regards to campaign financing. They will expand the terrible concept that money equals speech and that the candidate with more money gets more speech.
Maybe its time to introduce the following amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
No group, association or other private legal entity may contribute to any political campaign, only individual citizens of legal voting age and state governments on an equal basis where public financing of campaigns have been enacted. The states and federal governments may limit campaign contributions for their respective jurisdictions with equal protection for the contributors and campaigns.I know. No such amendment is going to be passed in my lifetime, but it never hurts to throw it out there.
