Call me old fashioned but...

Shouldn't these a-holes be PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE for THEIR OWN campaign debt? Why shouldn't these MULTI-MILLIONAIRES who have made their riches off the backs of Joe Q. Public be forced to PAY THEIR DEBT? Mr. "Romance novel best seller/Big shot lobbyist/Big money orator" Gingrich is an absolute slimeball.What can't you pay your debts? Regardless of the $10million your casino buddy tossed to you? Little Ricky, can't put your Pennsylvania mansion on the market? Hildabeast, can't shake a few coins out of papa bear Bubba's pockets? He only makes about $30million a year giving speeches. Really Mr. Glenn? Can't pay off $300k over a span of almost 30 years? Edwards is just waiting for his wife's insurance policy to pay out. And that giant turd Guiliani...don't get me started. This is the face of TRUE campaign finance reform we need, closing up the loopholes these bastards purposely put in the law so they could just throw up their hands and walk away from their obligations. Personally, there should only be ONE SIMPLE campaign finance law: "Get your financing from wherever, however you wish. Be aware you are personally accountable for your financial debt obligations. If you fail in meeting your obligations, your personally property and bank accounts will be seized to the extent that your debts are satisfied."
It makes me sick seeing these 'privileged class' dirt bags sitting in their English gardens, stirring the lumps in their tea with silver spoons and planning their next big scheme, while small business owners are having to eat their losses, stress about THEIR livelihoods and financial situation, and have to bend over and just take it. As a small business owner myself I understand too well how being in this bind affects your physical and spiritual wellness. Were I in their shoes the rage would be hard to quell. How long must we suffer this sort of TRUE injustice?
