Lobbyists = "Real Americans"

Of course, some of them also represent the sheiks of Saudi Arabia, the sweat-shop owners of the Marianas and the dictator of Colombia.

There’s a reason why the House and a third of the Senate can be replaced every two years. If you don’t want to be enslaved, pay attention and vote.
