Truly what is really needed in this country is a new way of looking at the political system. The founding fathers were right that we should have a representative government, but their ideas have been perverted into something they probably never imagined. When someone gets elected to Congress, they spend most of their time trying to get re-elected, due to the exorbitant amount of money required to run for public office. The only way we are going to take back our government and return to the founders intent, is to change the way we elect our representatives. The money that is spent on elections mostly comes from big corporations and politicians feel beholden to these corporations due to the massive amounts of money they receive from them. Special interest lobbies are created just to lobby Congress for legislation that fits their needs and agenda. The days of an average constituent having much say in their government are long gone. We need to have tax payer funded elections with no outside money accepted. This is the only way we are going to get back government of, by and for the people.
