Discussion: campaign funding
The video depicts that 144 thousands of people are living in Lesterland. There are two elections including the general election and the Lester election. In the Lester, election Lesters vote while in the general election, citizens vote. For running in the general election, only Lesters can vote that perform extremely well. This indicates that there must be changes in the election system for limited funds. Managing two types of election demands more funds, so it is more rational to transfer to a single election system. The elections are not funded rationally in America.
There are some unfair impacts of the Lester election such as camouflaged bending for keeping the Lesters happy. This also gives rise to the conflicting dependencies on who the Lesters are. In the US there is a general election and money election that is another drawback of the election system. In the money, election funders vote while in general elections citizens vote. There are only a few funders in the money election that creates the same conflicting dependencies. The statistics depict that 132 Americans give 60 percent of the super PAC money spent. White only 0.5 percent funders are relevant funders in America. Dependence on funders generates a subtle, camouflaged bending for keeping the funders happy. In reality, 70 to 80 percent of the congressmen are aiming at the collection of money for bringing their party to power. The conditions of USA elections are more worse than that of Lesterland because only 0.05 percent are not aiming for the public interest but for the private interest. This reveals that it is reasonable to cut the funding for the elections. The overall analysis indicates that elections are not funded in an effective manner that depicts the need for limiting the funds CITATION Ant16 \l 1033 (Zurcher, 2016).
