I hate to shatter your naivete, but lobbying is a good thing when not done maliciously.

If we ban lobbying then how will small groups get the attention a problem deserves? What if your church group wants to petition a Governor to move a road because too many kids are getting hit by cars leaving Sunday School? Shouldn't they be allowed to lobby him to sign off on an upcoming spend?

This is just one example but I'm sure you get the point.

Lobbying CAN be a good thing.

I think when people talk about lobbying on a scale that resembles what happens in D.C. they're more or less talking about the millions of dollars lobbyists throw at politicians. Lobbying is fine when money, or other perks arent involved. The "lobbying" that happens is nothing short it bribery if you ask me. What happened to swaying someones opinions based on facts, logic, passion? Now its "Lets throw a million dollars at so-and-so and they'll support our "cause."

Heck yeah man! Thank you for sharing that link.

Corruption isn't going to banish itself

My favorite quote from WolfPAC's video...

If people are truly sick and tired of sitting by and watching what's happening to this country and if people are truly sick and tired of just talking about it and tweeting about it and liking it and sharing it on Facebook its time to take action and get out on the streets and get involved and learn how to get involved even if you don't know how to.
