CAMPAIGN FINANCE

ANSWER


Despite being a leading democracy in the world, American politics have been dodged by various issues and financing political party campaign is one of those issues which greatly hamper the growth of our democracy. The issue of campaign finance has been compounded by fact that the more the rich contribute to political parties, the more they get in return. Elite theories of democracy assert that the rule of elite is inevitable and through many have tried to refute their claim campaign finance is the best yardstick that can be used to prove or refute their claim. After an election, hundreds of rich and interested groups descend on Washington like locusts in demand for a favor in return for their prior contribution. To prove the elite theorists right, we are ruled by a few powerful individuals holding office in custody of their political parties which are under the influence of the rich and influential.  This is the main reason why the U.S. congress has come up with proposition to carry major reform in financing our political parties such that we make them void to influence of the rich. This has been aimed at ensuring that candidates spend a good amount of their time selling their political agendas rather than meeting rich individuals and corporate to raise money for their campaign. However in a representative democracy this amount of contribution to politic party has its place since every side has to do its best to sell its policies than others. This means that every political party in campaign needs good funding to sell its political agenda. At the same time this may influence the interest of the contributors to the running of the political parties and therefore the needed reforms. The special interest money has a crucial role in the cause of political campaign
