Mendocino Campaign Finance Proposal Nixed

Looks like the Mendocino County Board of Supes shot down a proposal to restrict campaign finances within the county. Unlike Humboldt's Measure T, it looks like this one would have just restricted donations from outside the county to $5000 and limited individual contributions to no more than $500.

From what I can see, this makes a lot more sense than Measure T. If this would have been the issue last March, instead of Measure T, I likely wouldn't have supported it, but I wouldn't have actively opposed it either.

What we need to have is a LAW that makes it MANDATORY for ALL candidates running for ANY political office ....

A LAW to make them MATCH FUNDS.

It's simple: for EVERY dollar spent on political campaigns, a dollar must be paid to funding for public education.

That way, our kids would benefit from these elections.

That way, at least SOMEONE would be better off.

As it stands now.... political advertisments only help the media.
(and the LIARS who run for office)

It's time for a change.

The republican'Ts won't save ya... the democRATS won't save ya...

It's time to make them pay their share for the PRIVILEGE of running for public office.
Yes, it's a privilege... not a RIGHT.

AND.... if they wanna tap OUR phones and internet.... I say we tap THEIRS!

Cuz... the only people I see who have ties to bin laden = the bush family....

Duh.

Bush is BUSINESS PARTNERS with bin laden and OUR phones are tapped???????

sounds kinda fishy, doesn't it?
