that our political system has become completely unsustainable. Both parties require their candidates to raise obscene amounts of money, which allows special interests to functionally buy candidates for office. The people are no long in control of their own future, and this cannot continue.
That is why I propose creating a fixed cap on how much money each campaign may spend, based on the umber of voters that each type of campaign needs to reach. For example, someone running for the House of Delegates may only need to raise $50,000, while someone running for U.S. Congress may need to raise closer to $1 million to effectively reach out to their constituents.
