    Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.

    Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against America," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.

    Are you worried?

    Richard Nixon's "enemies list" appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.

    Disclosure of who donated what to which political campaign (aka campaign funding transparency) is something everyone should support, I would think.

    Now, smear campaigns towards the donors, I think is silly. But let's stop pretending only one party does it.

    FOX Street Journal, yeah, that's an unbiased source.

    What, exactly happened to these poor slobs? They were outed for campaign donations? So what. That shit should be public. If you're going to throw money at an election to attempt to turn it, people should know who you are. That's both parties, btw.
