Say an auto parts store had a "lobbyist" who talked or bribed the owner into buying his parts exclusively and promised all kinds of kick backs, bribes gifts of cash and goods etc. The local District Attorney's office would jump all over this. Unfair trade practices, the kick backs, bribes not to mention the cash and gifts to influence the business owner. Unfair competition etc. etc...
Then why is it OK for politicians to accept, cash, gifts, goods etc. from lobbyist? Everyone seems to think there is nothing wrong with this and everyone seems to think this is business as usual.
I DON'T THINK SO.
Let's start a crusade to end the powerful lobbyist movement in State & Federal government and return control back to the people (who do vote by the way).
IF you are a politician and this offends you, I am sorry for you. But in all honesty you have to ask yourself just who do you represent, the people or your special interests who hired the lobbyist to influence you? Unfortunately when you are in this boat (working for special interests/lobbyists), you are NOT working for the people and you DO NOT have their best interest at heart, no matter what you say.
I hope you see this my way and join me. Contact your local state representatives and your federal representatives and send them this message: If you take special interest money we will vote you out or you can join us and help make lobbying illegal as it should be. You can send this as an Email or print it out with your name and address and mail a copy to your representatives. They are always saying how they want to hear from you and to voice your opinion, now's the time to let it be heard. With hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars changing hands in back room deals this is the only way we can keep everyone honest.
God bless America
Honor and Truth
