Shoot, people don't even tick that little box on the top of their tax return to designate $3 to go to public financing program for presidential elections, even though the money doesn't add a single penny to their taxes!

I see through a little googling that in 2002, only 11% of Americans ticked the box.

I fully, 100% support publicly financed campaigns. However, I don't delude myself into thinking that Americans actually support such a thing; and even if it were more widely adopted, most people would probably think that politicians were crooks for taking public money to run a political campaign.
