Political Finance - Dyar Othman

Support For Political Finance

Political finances should be our own choices. If it wasn't our choice to donate anonymously or help a political group financially, then why do we even have our first amendment right. The first amendment is incorporated in political finances because it gives us the freedom to do what we want and that includes supporting a campaign in whatever way we want. I highly support the Citizens United vs FEC, because it is the only thing helping us individuals who are part of corporations and unions to support our candidates.

Against Political Finance

I believe that political finance should be very limited because this could lead to unfair advantages. That's why I support the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act because I think we should limit committee from raising money for political groups. I also agree with the Buckley v. Valeo ruling, that there should be great limits to election spendings. This ties into the documentary, " Big Money, Big Sky," because the documenter explains are presents to us how corrupt political financing can be such as with the organization WTP.

My Actual Response

I truly believe that political financing should be limited, because it is what makes our government corrupt, by giving one side an extremely unfair advantage. Like in the documentary, we can see the supporters who share large portions of their money with political parties, also aim to aggressively take down the other party. I think there should be individual donations that are allowed, but when large corporations and anonymous organizations are involved, then there should be regulations.
