Where do I say the government should “regulate spending”?

Because that system of small dollar, “citizen-funded” (yeah, right, it’s citizen-funded only if you ignore that that’s money taken from citizens in the first place) contributions will only change the equation if you simultaneously ban other spending. That quickly lands you on the Teflon-coated slope of government deciding jsut what is and is not political speech. You don’t want that any more than I do, because it means that a Republican administration could shut down leftist speech just as effectively as a Sanders administration could shut down corporate speech.
