apropos of nothing whatsoever

What if instead of soliciting monetary donations to their campaigns, politicians could only sell bonds on their campaign promises, payable with interest on a certain date if said promise was not kept? So instead of giving $500 to Sen. Blowhard, you give $500 to "pull out of Iraq or pay me $600 next October."

Surely I cannot be the first person to think of this?

you get over-produced campaigns the first year, and shoe string budgets the next.

Surely I can't be the first person to realize that said politicians would *still* skip out on their obligations? ;)
