There is so too much “big” money in politics — especially secret money. Most Democrats would like to fix that; Republicans block efforts at disclosure.
Another difference: Democrats want to make it easy to vote so more people will. Republicans want to make it harder, so more people won’t. Look, for example, at how hard they’re working at this in Georgia, blocking the tens of thousands of new mainly African-American and Hispanic registrants because (the claim) they’ve found 25 out of 85,000 that were bogus. And in loads of other states, with, it now seems, the help of George W. Bush’s appointments to the Supreme Court. (Thanks again, Ralph Nader.)
But there’s a solution.
As I’ve written before:
It’s not rocket science. We can do this.
And if we don’t want Republicans controlling the Senate and, thus, confirmation of any new Supreme Court nominees to lifetime appointments — we’d better.
(Share this thought with your twitterverse?)
