I can agree with that. It might be my political naiveté speaking, but I don't see how you get a government that is elected and rules democratically when the people with the money tell them how to vote and choose who you will vote for.

Excellent information, BrainGlutton. I have wondered how the US got such an obviously flawed system. When I first heard about the lobbying system in the US, I thought I was misunderstanding - how can people be allowed to buy influence of the politicians that are making laws for everyone? Why doesn't anybody see how wrong this is?
