Public Election Financing Can Pay Off for California

By John M. Gault, Letter to the Editor

The "pay-to-play" system of campaign financing has led to the domination of corporate interests in the formulation of our foreign policies. These policies have often led to the violation of the sovereignties of other nations, including the overthrow of many democratic governments and their replacement with more corporate-friendly dictatorships. Sept. 11 was small retribution for the damage we have done to many other countries. As our power increases, our incursions into the affairs of weaker nations will increase unless the citizens of this country create a government that represents their interests as opposed to the people who "pay to play."
