Representatives must horde power and leverage

to get re-elected.

There is (thusly) something wrong (very wrong) with people "electing" representatives.

If there were 435 RP's in office there'd be no point of Gov't -- because each one of them would never propose any form of spending, no one from their district would have benefited from spending millions to get them elected (so they wouldn't) and people would be "electing" them because they wanted to be left alone to "lord" over corporations via the market (consumer-sovereignty).

People (in reality) elect to have representatives reverse or circumvent consumer-will toward their groups benefit.
