So if you are not banning everyone all you are doing is taking away the message that "I approve".

Would that really matter?

And what about party ads that dont mention candidates and only mention issues that are very specific?

And I am not sure any of this passes a Constitutional test.

So you want to make it illegal for anyone to buy air time to talk politics before an election?

Aside from the Constitutional issues do you think that is a good idea?
I want to make it free....and limited.

There's no reason for 42 robo calls and 17 attack ads per day.  Noone likes it.  Noone wants it. It's crap.

If a corporation can be a person I'm not sure what can't pass the Constitutional test.


Same rules for "issues" races.  The people that want to run ads can meet to debate the issue.  One show, three times in the election cycle, townhall style debates.  All broadcast for free.

What cant pass the constitution, because of the citizens united, is that the Federal Government cannot ban political speech.
