  • Ralph Nadar doesn't take money from special interest groups and has been a crusader for consumer safety.

    Also, the green party refuses money from special interest groups.

  • I think ALL candidates should be given a certain amount of money to use to campaign- let's see what they can do with the small amount of funds allotted. This would make it fair across the board-especially for the 3rd party candidates who get the friggin' shaft year after year.
