Campaign Finance & Election
Campaigns should be open and free, not prone to manipulation through government financing schemes. And now the U.S. Supreme Court agrees.
Thomas Jefferson said there is "no safer depository of the ultimate power of society but the people themselves." Initiative and referendum is the means by which ultimate political power is retained by the citizens. It is a reminder that in our republican form of government nothing is more sacred than the right and freedom to govern ourselves. In its purest form is a powerful tool for defending liberty and restraining tyranny.
