Same Old Same Old
The solution to campaign finance, lobbyists, cronyism and the like is not to constrain your political rights to contribute as much as you like to your candidate or your right to try to influence legislation. The solution is to have a Constitution that limits what the government can do so that government will not become a magnet for the corrupt. (What? I thought we already had that. Maybe not. Apparently the magnet is still there.)
