Re: Surely the lobbyist money is much more than 30k

Career Politicians are definitely the problem.

We also need a separation of corporation and state.

Like they got any weaker under 4 years of Obama... remember the Dems had control of both houses of Congress (filibuster-proof even) and the Presidency for 2 years and they did nothing to shut them down! The Republicans had the same 2 years back in 2000 (but not the filibuster-proof Senate, so the Dems could STILL have stopped it), and they started those rules in the first place.

Plenty of guilt to spread around here... both sides wants the money!

The 2 lines that are especially dead on are thses:
"remember the Dems had control of both houses of Congress (filibuster-proof even) and the Presidency for 2 years and they did nothing" and "Plenty of guilt to spread around here... both sides wants the money"

I can't really remember the last time they did anything anyway!

Career Politicians are only allowed to have that as a career because the general voting population is too stupid to change that.

I pledge Allegiance to the corporations of the United States of America and to the Death Star for which it stands, one nation under AT&T, indivisible, with dial-up speeds and bandwidth caps for all.
