  • To the editor:
    Imagine this: No super pacs, no person having advantages due to their personal or special interests wealth. PBS would air all the commercials for free, the debates would be operated by different groups of respected journalists on PBS, and conventions would be covered by PBS.
    The super pacs with all their funds could spread that money to help fund research into i.e. ALS, all kinds of cancers, etc.. help improve the education system in this country, stop outsourcing jobs! All the other media systems can do what they want but not reap the attention of viewers by using sensationalism to attract viewers when it comes to elections.
    All that money could help America grow, the rich can keep it, then the people who are not so wealthy can feel that they are on a level playing field so their vote does count.
    All votes count! VOTE! It irks me to think of all the men and women who have sacrificed so much so the people in this country could have this right whereas in other countries they are not so lucky. Yes our government may not be perfect but it is better than any other I have seen, read about or heard about.
