Selling Elections

Dear Gerry

I'm worried. There is a serious problem with our congressional elections. I'm not talking about the deficit, border security, financial reform, or health care. It's not about anybody being a Nazi or Muslim.

It's about big business buying our elections, and therefore, our government trhough outside non-profit political groups. They have vague names - America's Family First, Crossroads GPS, ReverAmerica.org. Huge funds, including individual contributions of over 1 million dollars, are being used to produce political ads to affect our elections. The donations are anonymous, and these non-profits are fighting to keep it anonymous.

Don't let big business buy our government. Useyour common sense and inner set of values to guide you. Vote what you believe - not how big business is telling you how to vote.
