Recent reports of planned contributions to campaigns of presidential hopefuls are disturbing. Texas Governor, Rick Perry's super PAC "Make Us Great Again" is reported to be spending roughly $5 million dollars on television advertising and the rest to campaign in southern states to give the Governor a political advantage. Instead of wasting big amounts of money on their campaigns, maybe the presidential hopefuls should have their supporters donate the funds to the United States government, so the country can reduce the debt and improve our economy. This would have a very positive effect on their credibility with voters, and score really big points. Imagine if every candidate did the same, making this years election more of a personal competition to save the U.S. from financial disaster. The money would be much appreciated by the public and instead of making so many promises that cannot be kept, candidates would not have to promise anything at all, because we will have already seen what each one can do for their country. It's a win, win situation all around. There would be no need for attacks on each other, because the donations would speak for themselves. Just as donors to charities are recognized, hopefuls would have their work reported by the media and wouldn't need to spend a dime on television advertising, attacking each other, which really shows the public how low a politician can stoop, just to secure a nomination. Thinking about the voters, economy, and their problems, which begin with cuts to the budget, can really score points with the public. We may see a much bigger turnout in the polls, if all candidates adopt this strategy.
