Did you know that the vast majority of elected politicians spend their time and office resources not doing the work they were elected for? And that they sell lobbyists the ability to write their own bills for the sole benefit of large campaign donors?
It’s past time that we put politicians on the clock. Make it a crimeto campaign and fundraise during office hours. Make politicians put in a full shift doing the work for which they were hired (elected) every day, like the rest of the working world. Make them limit sick time and vacations to the same meager schedules as most of the American workforce.
Completely abolish all lobbying, and enact very harsh punishments.
If anyone else spent their employer’s time and resources begging for money, selling favors, and often flat out refusing to even meet their responsibilities the way politicians do, they’d be fired so fast… but we’ve collectively decided that it’s just fine to have this as our form of a “democratic” government. It’s all scams and bullshit, and it needs to stop.
By the people, for the people. All the people, not just the 400 people that own 99% of America’s wealth.
