Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

I cannot imagine that you would even consider the abomination of money wasted (and it WAS) on our electoral process. With so many out of work, too many of our children in poverty, too many of our returning servicemen needing help and support...well, too many places where the money could and should be spent. Take the money out of politics, run a six month election, demand free time from the networks for debates and fewer ads. We could solve our national debt!
Thank you for your consideration.
