From this point forward, if and when you win an election, you give up your right to a bank account, to finances, etc.
Instead, you’re given a budget – all Senators the same budget, nothing exorbitant and obviously more than what you’ll need for air-fare, taxis, food and shelter.
But no more than that – and you don’t get control of those funds, as few and meager as they are, our funds are still worth protecting from you.
And there’s a cap on what you can spend in order to get elected to begin with.
You’re given a retirement that matches not a percentage of what you’ve made – but an allowance that is voted on by the people and the presidents and averaged between the votes. This retirement allowance will bestow unto you all the comforts an outgoing president deserves, and more, and adjust with inflation.
The only difference is, you don’t get to keep the money you made before getting into office. Combining the asborbtion of all prior funds (back into the system you work for) with a campaign finance-cap deters even the snakiest of money-tricks used to manipulate elections and obstruct justice that might otherwise lead us back to true democracy, by the people, for the people.
These tricks include, but are not limited to:
Enslavement of the American people by:
- supplanting political conviction with poisonous (pro-ignorance) ideology
This aids and is achieved by:
- negatively affecting the outcome of elections by:
- allowing corporate funding to cross over into political campaigns
- quietly degrades democracy
- bankrupts the American people – the foundation of the nation
