    I want all corporate & union money out of politics. Rep. Adam Schiff proposed amendment falls far short of what we need. Congress spends more time fundraising than doing their jobs. We need a constitutional amendment to stop all corporation and labor union contributions to campaigns and PACs. Something Barry Goldwater understood as well. “In order to achieve the widest possible distribution of political power, financial contributions to political campaigns should be made by individuals and individuals alone. I see no reason for labor unions -- or corporations -- to participate in politics. Both were created for economic purposes and their activities should be restricted accordingly.” - Barry Goldwater from his book “Conscience of a Conservative” (Kindle Locations 566-568).
