Great idea. This concept will hopefully eliminate the ability to keep electing unqualified puppets and marquis figureheads, like the clown we have destroying our country right now, following the whims of his backers. No money from anybody except a general public fund, from which anybody who constitutionally qualified (if we still have a constitution left by the end of this year) can have the same playing field as special interest and career politicians. Imagine, some of these yoyos will have to actually go home and gets real jobs, and see what it's really like. Good move, Ms. Risley. You have my support!

"No money from anybody except a general public fund"

How could Mitt Romney buy the nomination then? He spent $44 million of his own in 2008. Not a dime yet this year, after all, he has Citizens United on his side.

Outspending Santorum in Illinois by 9-1 with his superpac, almost all on negative ads.

Let's see the vote tonight. What can money buy these days?

Good luck, Ms Risley, with the CU fight.
