Ok here is my startup idea: VOTEKICKER. VoteKicker is a crowdfunding website, inspired by Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, only for political campaigns specifically.
As a political candidate you can sign up for VoteKicker, and anyone anywhere can pledge up to $200 to your campaign. Candidates can only collect the funds if they refuse to accept any contributions from Large Individual Contributors (contributions over $200) as well as any contributions from PACs. Candidates could even set stretch goals, like “raise at least $1.5M and I can no longer be effectively blackmailed by the NRA”, etc.
This way, candidates worried about losing their massive corporate interest backing in the next election can have a safety cushion, in the form of small contributions from both their own constituency and concerned citizens around the world. NRA plans to runs ads against you? No problem, you’ve got over $2M in support from real people to help cover your ass.
You can have this one for free, you guys.
