Political Action Committees (PAC's) are not inherently corrupt, but since politics involves deals and backroom decisions, the system itself can be and often is corrupted and influenced by money. However, before the word PAC was thrown around by the media as if it were a bad thing, American politics was always rough and tumble, and struggles must take place in a free society. For example, in New York, where I was born and raised, each election is usually influenced by strong and partisan teacher unions, police and fire unions, private sector labor unions, industry lobbyists, various groups. Everyone expects that groups like Planned Parenthood will support candidates who are pro-abortion, while people like myself support only pro-life candidates through our own organizations or PAC's, if you will. Gay marriage supporters have their PAC's, while I support national organizations which stand for traditional marriage between one man and one woman only. Does my Christian faith determine whom I will support and what organizations I would donate to? You bet it does. Are those with views opposed to mine support their own candidates and PAC's? Of course they do. I do not agree with those who claim elections are "bought" by PAC's and their influence. People generally vote for those whom they agree with ideologically, and oppose those whom they disagree with in the political arena. Right or wrong, and with a mix of uninformed voters and one party partisans, the elections go on. Accusing some PAC's of being corrupt, while giving unions, liberal groups, black caucus PAC's, and media partisans a free pass is wrong. We may be a chaotic nation of individuals in the political sphere, but most everyone gets a seat at the table. Of course, the issue of political power can and will be abused, but this is why our republic requires openness. In the future elections, with social media, and target groups on twitter, the whole process will become even more volatile.
