A Revised Campaign Law
Proposal That Will Work

by Ken Mahal, NSC President
Originally published on  November 26, 2003 - reprinted with permission

Only A NATURAL PERSON WHO IS REGISTERED TO VOTE may make campaign contributions to all political candidates in the 50 states of the United States.

To the President, the Senate and the Congress.
For quite some time we have felt there is something wrong with who or what can make campaign contributions in the US. Therefore we propose this very simple reform to our present thousands of pages of campaign mubo jumbo.

We propose that only "A NATURAL PERSON" may make campaign contributions (and as in Alaska’s law, put a definite "prohibited" after all other possibilities). To further narrow it to citizen persons we propose the following:

● 1. Only NATURAL PERSONS WHO ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE may make campaign contributions. Adding registered to vote to a natural person pretty well illuminates for sure the wiggle room to include unwanted special interests including foreign interests.
● 2. Only NATURAL PERSONS registered to vote in the candidate’s district may make campaign contributions to that candidate. Your residence is where you live and are registered to vote.
● 3. Campaign contributions by a NATURAL PERSON shall be limited to $1,000 in the primary and $1,000 in the general election.

Webster's definition of NATURAL is: by birth pertaining to nature.

Webster's definition of PERSON is: an individual human being, especially as distinguished from a thing or lower animal; an individual man, woman or child.
For the 50 state campaign laws see:   http://www/fec.gov/pages/chart2A.htm.

In conclusion we know only you and I as, Natural Persons will understand this campaign finance law proposal so that make it a great law. No more packs or special interests.
