    Well written, informative piece. My only concern: money/greed seem to be deeply embedded into the DNA of our country – and lately short-sighted “me-ism”/”my-interests-only” appears to take precedence over “how can we create strategic long-term improvements that will mutually benefit all and strengthen our nation.”

    How can we shift away from special interests dominating towards a stronger culture? Abraham Lincoln wrote, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Yet here we are, as deeply divided as a nation as I can remember.

    I think Robert Reich has the best idea, a blind trust. All campaign contributions would go to a blind trust which would batch it by intended recipients and forward it to the recipients keeping names of donors a big secret. Free speech is protected and bribery is eliminated. What a concept!
