Yes, as long as the donations are part of the public record.

As we move into the future, the 2 major political parties in the US have become increasingly more extremist and further divided; leaving many Americans left to support the "lesser of 2 evils". In order to evolve the political landscape and insure that our political system doesn't become a slave to corporate interest, funding should be capped, and limited to public funding only. A tax incentive can be given to every legally registered voter that will allow every individual the ability to fund the party of their choice.

Yes, but make all members wear Nascar style jackets that display their funding.

Yes, however, companies that have recently committed or are suspected of committing an immoral act are an exception.

@9XG5NWNLibertarian from Illinois answered…9mos

Only public unions should not be able to contribute to political candidates. That is crony capitalism

Yes, but public unions running on taxpayer money should not be able to buy our elections against a certain group of taxpaying voters and neither should multinational corporations buy them.

@9SV5QYNDemocrat from Oregon answered…1yr

Our system of lobbying is extremely broken paying someone to vote in your favor is bribery. I feel unions are lumped in there without thought as to what they actually do for workers. Fight for good pay and benefits. Businesses are lobbying to hurt the workers and nonprofits are tied to special interest.

@9SRKSVDLibertarian from Minnesota answered…1yr

No for corporations and unions but yes for some non-profits. Political parties are non-profits, as are PACs.

I think if a candidate passes various democratic tests, there should be funding available for these candidates in the form of subsidies from companies. For instance a minimum dollar/time for all for: airline credit for travel; advertising (and only factual content not harping on others); marketing spend; food; postage; etc. During each race, each candidate will receive points based on morale; alignment with issues among citizens; consistency between work done and promises; morality; decency; transparency; etc.

@9PBKDC6Women’s Equality from Missouri answered…2yrs

yes, as long as it is their money, not other donations, and it does not take away from their cause

@9PC8GY9Peace and Freedom from Oregon answered…2yrs

Yes, but they should be subject of the same limitations as private donors. Additionally if someone is found to be in ownership or management of said corporation, union, and/or non-profit they should not be allowed to make a private donation (don't allow double dipping).

@9NZ4SWBVeteran from Kansas answered…2yrs

No, if a company owner wants to donate they can use their personal funds, not company funds. Unions serve many people of varying political affiliation and should not use funds for politics, same for non-profits.

@9NSYY6RConstitution from Missouri answered…2yrs

Yes, but only to candidates that would represent the area where they have a physical presence (property, building, offices, ext.)

@9N9X94FLibertarian from Illinois answered…2yrs

Yes, but the money must be traceable and completely public knowledge.

@9N9JC5WRepublican from Louisiana answered…2yrs

Yes, but with full public disclosure, allowing constituent members to opt out
