So giant media organizations give millions in campaign contributions to politicians, and then politicians spend millions advertising on tv, essentially giving the money right back to them. 12.5 million has been spent in Iowa on TV ads alone. That’s an average of 200 dollars per voter. I wonder why the politicians don’t directly just give the voters the money. It seems like a much more logical system. “I’m Mitt Romney, I’m not going to bother you with annoying TV ads this season but instead, here’s two hundred bucks. Vote for me.” 93 percent of elections are won by the candidate who spends more anyway. If our votes are essentially bought these days, shouldn’t the voters at least be the ones profiting?
