Letter: Allow open campaign donations

  • Posted: Friday, October 18, 2013 12:01 a.m.

Campaign contributions are speech and must not be curtailed in order for us to preserve our right of free speech. There should be no limitations. Sen. John McCain was wrong on this as he is on most items these days. The only requirement should be full disclosure of the donors immediately. The only method we can use to judge each candidate is by who supports him. The full disclosure of leftist billionaire George Soros’ contributions to Barack Obama throughout his career would have been instructive. Soros also has funded MoveOn.org, and hundreds of other leftist organizations designed to trash Republicans and support every leftist Obama policy.
