Prof. Lawrence Lessig has started a non-partisan PAC aimed at supporting politicians who will work for campaign finance reform... from either party. If we currently have a plutocracy, instead of a government 'of, by and for the people', then this might be the best way to achieve reform... in desperate straits, you have to fight fire with fire ;) (This brings to mind Ralph Nader's book, "Only the Super Rich Can Save Us".. and crowd-sourcing may be able to make us all 'millionaires' ;)

PS... and isn't it the 'bought' politicians that are at the root of ALL social injustice... Monsanto, big agri, pharm, food, banksters, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc. etc., etc., etc. (I wonder what new tactics the pluto's will switch to if this actually threatens their grip.... after all, they can and do hire the best minds ;)
