I’m not a very political person. When someone around me starts speaking politics, I kinda zone out and start drooling on myself due to the extreme level of boredom (and lack of knowledge) on the subject. HOWEVER, recently my mother put together a petition on WhiteHouse.gov that I think most people could get behind. The focus of the petition is to outlaw represented lobbyists in our democratic system. Below has more details…
When our forefathers created the Bill of Rights, they gave us the right to have access to our elected representatives to promote changes within the government. I do not believe, however, that our forefathers anticipated the unbridled greed for money and power of our current representatives who ignore their constituents’ wanted and need to follow the money trail of big business, all the while lining their pockets.
Lobbying has gone from the ideal of the common man to have the right to speak to his representatives about personal and local concerns to a multimillion business that sways greedy politicians at the expense and suffering of ordinary citizens.
If you agree, please sign this petition in support of outlawing represented lobbyists in our democratic system.
If you feel the same way, click the link below and sign the petition. We need 25,000 signatures by December 1st, 2011. Hopefully we can put a stop to these greedy sons’a bitches.
