Why does the involvement of ordinary people in politics make you sick?

Because this is not the involvement of ordinary people in politics. This is the domination of politics by Mammon.

Mammon supplied by ordinary people...

I'm not sure how manipulating people's emotions in order to get at their wallets is a good thing.
Though a sociological study (a proper one, not a normal sociological study) of the sort of people who throw their money in the general direction of American politicians would be interesting to see.

Do you support government funded elections?

No. I support extremely strict spending caps.

The concern is how much money is spent rather than where it comes from (though after a certain point the two become hard to tell apart).

Contempt of Hillary Clinton + likability of Barack Obama (and positions) = $$$

But, as the title of this thread makes clear, he has rather a lot of money already. Why give even more?

This thread really is a wonderful example of American politics at its worst.
