Democracy, if it meant what our forefathers said, that would be great, but unfortunately it's been corrupted by this funding and funding of campaigns. There's a much better way to do it. There could be a small amount of money given by every taxpayer to be dedicated to candidates.
As our values are the core to who we are as human beings, they are also the easiest way to identify and connect with others in meaningful ways.
