It would reduce the CORRUPTION involved. I have long advocated for this. Each station - TV and Radio - using public airwaves (those would be ours) should give EVERY candidate 2 - 3 hours of air time to present their platform. Everyone in the same election cycle should be given the SAME amount of time. If a candidate can't say what they stand for in that time, they are too stupid to serve us. No other politic-ting allowed. So they are forced to hone their message and keep it to the truth. It that gives them time to lie, cut it further. This cuts out unions, lobbyists, foreign criminals, and LOCAL criminals. It would return politics to the people actually ELECTING them.
