The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure
when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them
How can the electorate choose who to vote for
without knowing what special interests if any the candidates are funded by?
Why would legislators who received targeted campaign contributions
be relatively protective of certain entities?
It is impossible to introduce into society
a greater change and a greater evil than this;
The conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder
If a few contribute the majority of large campaign donations that many can’t afford,
who works for whom,
and what do the few expect in return that most probably won’t receive?
