This is a great idea. I'm tempted to give you a list of things, but I won't, because I'm sure this thread will be in reasonably high demand, haha.

For now: what do you think of campaign finance reform? Would a constitutional amendment be necessary, or would strengthening disclosure laws--or, as you mentioned earlier, aiming to nominate someone like Kerry/Trump who are so affluent that they wouldn't pander to donors--be sufficient?

Is campaign finance reform what you want me to talk about? What specific aspects of campaign finance reform? Or, would you prefer to just have me talk about the facts and circumstances surrounding campaign finance, generally?

It's a big topic, not too big, but before I say anything I'm curious if anyone has, like, specific things within the issue of campaign finances that they'd like me to touch on.

Quebec separation.

I'll briefly comment on that:

If Quebec broke from Canada, it would become even more of an economic colony of the United States than it already is, which would be bad for Quebec. Canada is a much more humane country, in terms of how it treats its citizens, than the United States is.

I have that bet riding on the nomination. Your earlier (other post) was good, but still I have complete faith that the GOP is not on their way to nominating this.... person? I guess he qualifies as that.

I know too many good (actually good smart people) republicans to ever be so jaded - to think this man represents the majority of them is beyond the pale.

I think your post addresses all of my questions, but I'll let you know after I read it through. I was mainly curious of your thoughts on the political feasability of any variation of campaign finance reform (whether it could happen, which forms might be most likely to happen, and whether support for it, as in Bernie Sander's case, would be political suicide).

In reality, I like the citizenship process to be easier. I'd also like for illegals to have more rights. Most of the illegal immigrants I have known are really good people, and they came to the United States out of desperation, because they had no where else to go.
