I would like to draw attention to Mike McCabe of Wisconsin. Founder of Blue Jean Nation and author of Blue Jeans in High Places, The Coming Makeover of American Politics. He helped start the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign in 1995. This government watchdog group "follows the money" in Wisconsin politics. This year he announced his Campaign for Wisconsin Governor because he saw no other candidates ready to directly undermine the "legal bribery" system of modern campaign finance structures. He is undermining that system at its heart. He will not accept any single campaign donation greater than $200 and no total donations from a single person of greater than $1000. People Powered and Crowd Funded, his campaign is off to a good start and could be recognized for what it stands for: an alternative to politics as usual, an alternative to voting for the lesser of two evils, an alternative to governance that works for a few and not for all, a believer in governance of the people, by the people and for the people.
