Newt on Free Elections
Just as tax lawyers always succeed in out-thinking the (Internal Revenue Service) because they stay after five and the IRS goes home, the private-sector lawyers will always out-think the (Federal Election Commission) because they stay after five and the FEC goes homeI agree with Newt, but this is only one of the reasons why I disagree with McCain-Feingold. As I have discussed before, Campaign contributions represent a form of free expression, the ability to express your support through financial means, and limits on contributions are a limit on that freedom.
Furthermore, restricting donations gives disproportionate support to non-mainstream candidates, those with unpopular platforms. "Candidates with a more appealing message are able to obtain proportionally greater levels of financial support", thus, a "free-market" system is only fair.
