Here's A Novel Idea...


Stop peddling influence! How about we empower people to learn about the issues to elect non-corrupt people instead.

PACs serve a purpose, but they should only help to educate on the issue they support, lobbyists should just go the fuck away. If a congress person doesn't know about an issue, they should make the effort to inform themselves, not the other way around. That's why they are collecting a paycheck!

Every eligible citizen should become informed and exercise their right to vote for qualified candidates. Money grubbing politicians and special interest group supporting those politicians should not get to dictate who gets in. We need to clean house of anyone whose sole purpose is just to leech off the governmental teat to get power, which then procures them advancement in the private sector when they conclude their stint on our dime. Elections should not be a networking opportunity to continue their inevitably greater financial success, but rather be a representative to the fine people who elected them.


We need to find those who want for the better of the people they represent. Their job is to listen to their constituents, educate themselves about what needs to change, have an intelligent idea of the big picture for the district or state they represent and find ways for progress in the areas of most need.

That's it.

This will allow for a much more ethical group of people getting in and only staying because their desire is for improvement of who they represent rather than self-enhancement.

Will you join me in making that happen?
