Should the state regulate the funding of political parties?

  • Funding of our political parties needs to be redone.

    I would love to see the states do some type of regulations over our political parties. I would like to see a system in which both parties acquire an equal amount of funding. It is currently an unfair system in which one party can pretty much buy the political position of their choosing as long as they have the capital to do so.

  • Yes, States should regulate the funding for all political parties.

    Far too much funding for state elections is coming from out of state donors. Why should out of state political donors be influencing state elections? The amount of monies being spent on elections has become obscene, and a good amount of it is not coming from the local level. Also, too many incumbent candidates, especially Senate and House members are being influenced by outside contributions.

  • Campaign Finance Laws Already in Place

    Campaign finance laws are already in place to regulate the funding of political parties. Donations made to each party are monitored as individual donors are public knowledge. Donations from corporations are currently limitless, which is where "shady" donations come into play. Anyone can donate to a company's coffers without disclosure. Campaign finance for political parties must be in place, otherwise special interests can easily control American politics anymore than they already have.

  • No, but they should regulate campaigns.

    Political parties should be free to raise their own money from a range of individual, non-corporate sources. This is part of freedom of assembly and expression at some level. But there should be some limits on campaigning that ensure everyone has an unencumbered opportunity to learn about candidates in the weeks before an election. So while the parties can make money at other times, we need to designate a portion of the campaign season, as other countries do, to be free from ads and other paid influence.

  • Yes not only the states though

    The federal government should also step in so much money is being spent on these campaigns that money could go to help people and fund projects instead.

    We might run into some problems if they states alone are in charge of saying what regulations they want to put in place as each states Governor may want to put in a policy that will befit his or her political party.
