It's amazing how ideas that were rejected just a year ago are flying through cyberspace as well as real-space, at the speed of light. I'm talking about two things here. The first I'll mention is the idea that both the Democrats and the Republicans' are pawns of the corporate power structure in this country. It will probably seem hard to believe now, but just a short time ago I was called all sorts of things for bringing that up. Since 2004, I have been writing about campaign financing and the need for reform. This one issue is the basis of corporate control along with the "good folks" on K-Street that staff 70 lobbyist's for every legislator we have on Capitol Hill. Gee, what a great system we have up there (for the legislators and the lobbyists). I can't wait to run for office myself so I can get in on those goodies they're passing out (only kidding), this can't last forever...or can it?
