Should we limit the time allowed for campaigning?
Saw this post on another thread, and thought it deserved its own discussion. My initial thought was "How much time/money is our nation spending on campaign rhetoric?" If anyone knows, please enlighten us. Then maybe we can figure out a better use for the time and money.....
How many ills would be ended if we enacted laws limiting campaigning to a few months?
Information is disseminated instantly today. We do not need years for a Pony Express to get 'the word' to far flung voters. We only need enough time for presentations and challenges to rise to the fore and be debated *within a limited timeframe*.
Almost anyone could afford to run for almost any office.
How long is 'long enough', in your opinion? I'm thinking six months.
