Groups organized to support a candidate can take in tens of millions to support the candidate of their choice. No accountability, no transparency.

The $2500 limit doesnt really matter. If you have the money and want to get blow your money supporting a party, candidate or cause, there are ways.

I maxed out with Obama in 2008 and 2012 and had no shortage of organizations showing me how to give more to help him out. And all legal.
