Let’s pay politicians more.

You know, for all the controversy about congress giving themselves raises, it stands to be considered that the average salary of members of congress is MUCH less than they could make on the open market.

It’s what leads to lobbying, and corporate control of our government.

The reality is…until we figure out a way to take so much of the influence out of our government, we’ll never be happy with the results we’re getting.

Look at the NRA – for all the bluster about protecting rights, blah, blah, blah…we neglect to recognize the NRA for what it is – a TRADE lobbying group designed to keep the market open for ALL its products.

It’s why the dairy lobby is involved in food labeling.

And the travel lobby in FAA restrictions.

My point is simply this…that the point…isn’t so simple.
