How Getting Money out of Politics Can Bring Americans Together

Saturday, March 25, 10 am EASTERN.  Mascoma Forward will be holding a zoom meeting for purposes of caucusing to select new leadership for 2023-2024.  Dan McMillan and Olivia Zink will be the guest speakers.  The public is invited to attend.  Please email Tom Oppel for the link. 

Dan founded and leads Save Democracy in America, a non-partisan campaign to get big money out of politics. He has earned a Ph.D. in German history from Columbia and a law degree from Fordham. He has taught college-level history and prosecuted criminal cases for the Brooklyn DA’s office. In 2014 Dan published an acclaimed book for the general public about why the Holocaust happened. After several years researching a book about money in politics, Dan decided that direct political action was more urgently needed and launched his campaign for Democracy Dollars.

Dan describes a common-sense solution to the biggest flaw in our political system: our government is for sale to high-dollar campaign donors, and this is not government by the people. We can help fix this problem by making ourselves the donors. This reform is called Democracy Dollars and it is gaining steam from coast to coast. Under this system, the government would give every registered voter vouchers for campaign cash. You can’t spend this money for yourself, but you will be able to give these vouchers to the candidates you want to support. Once candidates get their money from us instead of from special interests, politicians will listen to us and serve us. Republicans and Democrats both support this reform, so it’s a great opportunity to bring us together and cool off the partisan anger which threatens our democracy. 

New Hampshire voters can use their special importance in choosing our Presidents to force primary candidates and the national media to confront the money problem and Democracy Dollars as a possible solution.
