Let’s Equalize The Right To Vote

I got involved in a conversation on Facebook the other day that led to one hell of a light bulb over the head moment.

Let’s make elections fair… Let’s put a limit on the amount of money you can give to all candidates for office equal to the amount of income taxes you paid. Limit the amount you can give to the parties or political action committees at some (small) multiple of those same taxes. So basically, if you want to be generous to a political party… Fine, just be generous to your government responsibility.

Pay your way in America and have your say in how America runs.

What do you think? Un-american enough for you… Pay your taxes and be allowed to contribute. Paid free speech is a privilege, not a right of the very rich or the un”people” that are corporations.

Back when I drove to work each morning I would pass this scene on the way in. The rising sun would highlight the grasses. These grasses, at certain times of the year, would glow with a purple haze in the light. For a couple of weeks I went on my merry way thinking I should try and capture an image… Finally I did…This is one of the resulting shots. The images I captured that morning have graced my monitors here and there ever since. This is the version on my laptop this week…Enjoy
