Caspermike, I am like half with ya,
Your lobby is your vote, companies have no vote and thus lobby, I would rather let companies have a vote than pay off the leaders thru the lobby.
Democracy, please,lets use words correctly if we are going to discuss this...Democracy, can anyone name one?
Constitution is in the closet (and on my dashboard), but why do you really think there was a revolution, for freedom, for democracy, please...in many cases less people could vote after than before, and then still only for a person not an issue. Are you sure it wasn't to distract the poor in this country who were ready to revolt against the rich at that time? (it worked) Are you sure that the rich did not create the revolution in part to stay rich and nab british land here in the colonies? (it worked) You are right people can be arrogant to the knowledge provided and we are all influenced by the propaganda. More reading and talking about this may help your understanding and then we can team up and change things.
Daniel Shay was a terrorist that tried to revolt against this country (and perhaps rightfully so), we still have the same government, and now we name highways after him. Usually it takes a revolution to turn terrorists like Washington into a Hero. Timing is everything (so is location and who you know).
Lets bump this to the eddy (or it just seems right to do so).

our constitution is being put in the closet and we need to realize it.
