"We've allowed our elections to become a bazaar for special interest & corporations to broker their support for favor & influence, if not to dominate the electoral process entirely.
Our representatives have become little more than the middlemen & women between the self interest of corporate America & the law making process."- Lou Dobbs (Independence Day)
Lobbyist from Halliburton wrote our Energy policy. Lobbyist from Tyson Foods & Western Union decide our Immigration policies. China manipulates our monetary & Trade policies. Politicians from both parties allow think tanks funded by big Oil, big Pharmaceutical & big Banking interest to write our domestic policy as well as our foreign policy.

Both parties are promising change. We hear it every 4 years. But the truth is they have almost the same financial backers & there’s lobbyist bribing whichever party takes office.
We need REAL CHANGE! The kind of change that can only come from new parties & publicly funded elections. Because as long as Big Oil can write our Energy policy, we’ll always be dependent on foreign oil. As long as China can set our Trade policies we’ll always have record Trade deficits. There is a reason why nothing gets fixed in Washington.
REAL CHANGE has to come from the bottom up.
