Political TV ads should be free

The air we breathe is free. Corporations somehow control what goes over the airwaves. A large part of the cost of running for office is for TV and radio ads. In return for use of the airwaves, broadcasters should do their part in ensuring a functioning democracy by making time available for legitimate candidates. Politicians must spend a large portion of their time in office dialing for dollars. That's not what we elected them for.
