ABSTRACT
The author discusses the concept of vote buying in the U.S. referring such as a level of corruption that undermines the hopes for solving the big problems of the time. He mentions his advocacy of promoting the passage of a constitutional amendment to curtail unlimited election spending in the country. He also stresses that money is not the sole way to influence an election and cites the essence of going door to door, phoning, and helping people get registered rather than spending money.
