It takes a lot of money to get elected and re-elected and its far easier and more effective to be given what you need than campaigning and fund
raising. All you got to do is play ball, and that is what they are doing. They know the majority don't want another war, that is why they are
marketing this via the MSM.
In addition, since our politicians are human (besides the reptilian ones, I have seen the youtube evidence
) we can't be really surprised that
they are not immune to the billions spent in lobbying each year that is thrown at them.
Also look at the Genetically Modified Organism GMO bill that passed, that was something that was not asked by the constituent and was something that
only benefited the lobbyist. In my State (FL) Republican Rubio went against the basic republican ideals. He voted to not allow for state rights , by
denying states to decide if it should label the lab experiments as GMO versus natural. He also went against the basic Republican ideal of letting the
market decide when he voted to not inform the public of what they are eating. We now have no choice as a consumer but to accept GMO.
Bottom line, as long as we don't address the lobbying issue and the fine line of how money touches our politicians from special interest groups ,
don't expect them to have our best interest in place. That is why regardless of Democrat or Republican in congress we get bigger gov't, more taxes,
more global conflicts, and the issues that the general public complains about is the industries with the biggest lobbyist and biggest profits.
We don't need to do away with lobbying since its a way for our gov't to hear our concerns. However, we do have the technology available to change it
from the highest bidder to a more accurate representation of what the general public wants.
