In one sense, it is; in another, it is apples and oranges. For one, we are not advocating an end to citizen's rights to lobby and support public information campaigns about issues. We are talking about something very narrow: liberating politicians and election campaigns from the current clearly undemocratic campaign finance system. We are encouraging citizens to spend a few dollars to claim back their influence over the political life of America. The money will be spent for a broad education campaign and not to support or oppose specific candidates or parties at election time, as Political Action Committees do.
Beyond these distinctions, ask yourself this: How else realistically in modern America can you get fundamental change without a campaign that broadly educates and rallies the public to demand it? We all need to stretch a bit to reclaim our democracy and our politics - and this is a far easier and more likely successful stretch than that of the Egyptians going out in the street at risk of their lives to reclaim theirs.
