nonsense of today's political campaigns. Campaigns that strip us of the single most crucial component
in our struggle to self-govern - abundant, accurate,
relevant information about those who govern or those
who wish to replace those that do... important effort to preserve and protect our right to self-govern in the face of
campaigns, parties and the special interests who's increasing control and manipulation of information
strikes at the heart of our democracy."
