    I like the idea of the anonymous donations, have you tried to get Congress to take up that discussion? That would certainly bring some cool backlash! On the other hand if government would get out of the business of regulating business, the need for lobbyist would drop dramatically. Donations would dry up, as well, and the costs of running for office would go down as the funds would not be there for all of those advertisements. Wait! The advertising lobby will never sign off on this.
    It is a vicious circle!
