Help, maybe?

I got an idea from a post about negative campaigning in the UK to write an NS issue about the issue of negative campaigning. I was getting all excited, thinking "Oh, boy, I'll write my first issue!" and such. I started drafting it, and then I hit a barrier.

What do you suppose should be the effects of some of the possible actions?

I suppose one could just say that illegalizing negative campaigning decreased political freedoms and decreases government spending by a small amount or somesuch, but what about keeping it legal?

And what would you suggest for possible other options? I was thinking about one that would be outlawing campaign adverts, but does that work or is it verboten to do something like that? What else might I do?

I do hope this is the correct forum to post this in...

Maybe some sort of tax on the negative adverts and less of a cost on airing/publishing the more positive and less negative ones?! :confused:
