Just $6
Here's an example of why Google Ads are good for blogs and websites.

Earlier today (it may still be there when you read this) there was an add on this blog for something called "Just $6". The subtitle read "Our democracy is broken - fix it with Just $6". It sounded interesting, so I checked it out.

Turns out it's a bipartisan group of former senators, many of whom I really respect (especially Bill Bradley), that is working to establish a fully publicly funded campaign system. And it turns out that public funding of all House, Senate, and White House campaigns would cost only $6 per person per year.

Imagine that. For only $6 a person, we could dramatically change the way politicians are financed and incentivized. It's a great idea, and I would say that it will probably happen - it's just a matter of when.

Check out the site, and see for yourself: (Or better yet, click on the ad at the right if it's still there).
