Pareto's Law & Political/Foreign Corruption

Pareto's Law (80/20 Principle): This law states that 80% of the results come from 20% of the causes. For example, in business 80% of the sales come from 20% of the good customers/clients

Now, from observing our National Political System, I believe that 80% of the funding (if not more) of candidates election  funding come from big money special interest  sources (the 20%) buying: Special Access/IOUs when they support political candidates continually soliciting/begging their support.for election/re-election.

In addition, I believe that powerful special interest (domestic and foreign) set-up/corrupt public servants to favor their special interest.

Thank God for the 20% Non Corrupted by: campaign IOUs, power/hubris, set-ups/human mistake.

Anybody believe in campaign finance reform and term limits ?

Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.
