We don't need restrictions on

We don't need restrictions on how much money can be donated to a campaign. We need restrictions on what the politicians receiving said donations can do. Ayn Rand spoke of a separation of economy and state, much like the separation of church and state. A corporation could have no influence over how regulations are written if the government were truly constrained in what regulations they could impose. It is our failure that has given us every problem we face. We have allowed politicians to do what they want, while abdicating our responsibility as self governing citizens. The only solution is to take back that responsibility and not further restrict any part of the citizenry. I'm not optimistic, just saying.
