Robert Jenson wrote an excellent article entitled "How Big Money Eviscerates the First Amendment." It is available online here:

Democracy and is about empowering "we the people" while corrupt crony capitalism is about the concentration of money and power. Democracy is only possible with "economic democracy." Local politics is as corporatist as state or federal politics.

Divorce campaigns from money and go to IRV and democracy might come to life again.
