  •  IMHO we should also (0+ / 0-)

    tax for-profit lobbying out of existence. It's one thing to exercise our rights to "Petition the government for redress of grievances", and quite another to use one's personal connections to be a conduit for bribes by and for the benefit of the ultra-rich elite.

    We should also make it a rule that campaign spending should not exceed Congressional salaries. How can we trust anybody who spends millions or even tens of millions trying to convince people to hire them for a job that pays a "mere" $174k?

    Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.
