    Default Dark Money

    How do you guys feel about money where the donors are not identified. I absolutely feel that it should not be allowed at all. Every cent should be tracked to the source.

    agree!!!!!

    big, bad, overly wealthy, influence peddling, indidviduals, corporations and their lobby partners should all be tracked. this should lead to them being identified and eliminated from the political process!

    on the other hand, small, bad, underly wealthy, influence peddling individuals, corporations and their lobby partners should be tracked. this should lead to anyone receiving government benefits/money of any type within the last year from voting!

    LET'S GET MONEY OUT OF POLITICS!!!!!! ALL MONEY!!!!!!!

    Maybe they should wear jackets with all their sponsor logos like NASCAR. That would be cool.

    Surely you aren't talking about charitable contributions! Hopefully I am correct. Hopefully that is.

    You might not like the result but that would fine with me. I'd really like to know how much union
    money is misspent on behalf of unwilling folks. Also believe that the instant a donation is made it
    should be publicly recorded.

    Donated to what?

    Any money donated to a political party should be public record of who donated it and the amount. There should be no secret donations. If a PAC is donating money each donor inside the PAC should be identified and the amount each donor made. If money can not be tracked it should be mandatory that it be turned over to a charity.

    I heard a guy on the local radio station a while back talking about this issue. Now I don't always agree with him, but he usually has his facts right. He said that in the early days they had to list who gave what and it led to "pay to play" politics and contracts. They then enacted the anonymous donations so that you could donate to who you wanted without repercussions. If you believe either the right and especially the left wouldn't use this info against someone I've got a bridge to sell you. This has already happened recently. Because of this I think it should remain anonymous, but this doesn't mean I don't think there shouldn't be some tweaks made.
