Part of it is the system itself...

the campaign contributions - and those figures don't even include the money spent on a candidate's/party's/issue's behalf via "PAC's." (I forget the different places our paths have crossed, but did you read what former Congressman Gus Savage put on the Congressional Record re his own experience with, especially, these PAC's? Very troubling. http://www.dailypaul.com/256883/us-lawmakers-forced-to-suppo...)

As to the lobbying, there's no excuse! Our good friend Ron Paul proved that, whose "sweet words" remain.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
