Industrial Politics

"In America, we have the best politicians money can buy."

-Will Rogers

We must eliminate the self-serving influence of industries that are corrupting our democracy.  Last year alone, the healthcare industry and the financial industry combined spent approximately $1,000,000,000.00 lobbying our politicians.  With the massive influence that this amount of money procures for these two industries, is it any wonder that our nation is currently in the middle of both a financial and healthcare crisis?  It is time to outlaw what is in essence bribery.  Elected officials have duties which must be fulfilled. These duties do not include soliciting campaign contributions.  Campaign contributions by industries amount to influence which supersedes the influence of your vote.  Currently the Federal Elections Commission regulates this corruption.  We shouldn’t be regulating something that should be illegal—it is time to outlaw this corruption.
