In the massively successful online multi-player game called World of Warcraft, I can achieve in fewer than seven (7) hours what it would take many players a full week of game play.  I can take a new character, from level 1 with no gear or expertise, and get that character to the current level cap of 110.  What is interesting about this method is very simple to do. My angle, or my view, is that it is sad that players will willingly choose to pay Blizzard, the creator of World of Warcraft, $60 to be level boosted from level 1 to level 100, still leaving 10 levels to go!!!  In my opinion, that is a waste of money whereas with just 7 hours of game time they could have achieved max level from level 1! This could easily be published on Wowhead where other World of Warcraft players would see this and hopefully learn how to improve their leveling methods or dissuade people from burning $60 for the level boost or both!

A topic I am massively interested in is campaign finance reform. I believe campaign finance reform is needed because with the implementation of Citizen’s United, our current political system has become even more corrupt. What I find interesting about this topic is that without fundamental changes to how our candidate’s campaigns are funded the candidates have no choice but to listen to those making large campaign donations.  With the big donors having the most ready access to candidates, Ma and Pa, the common voter, have very little influence over political ideas. My perspective  on this is that we must change current laws in regards to how we fund our candidates campaigns, otherwise our political system is corrupted at all levels state, local and federal. This issue for the most part is ignored. Yes, during our most recent political races there was talk of the Koch Brothers and their exhorbatent campaign contribiutions, that’s all it was, just talk.  As it stands now,  we are acknowledging the problem, but not fixing it. I could see this being published in Forbes, The Blaze, Fox News, MSNBC, CNN or even NBC as this issue is apolitical.
