The people have no representation in congress because we have no lobbyists and if we donate to a campaign it’s to one candidate we like or to all of them through our income tax. Our system has become one of corporate rule and nobody represents the people anymore.
I suggest a system in which one of these national committees that provide the campaign contributions for reelections is funded by the people with corporations not allowed. The biggest part of the campaign contributions would go to congressman and senators that vote with their constituents most of the time and those that don’t go to the ones that do.
It would be simple, say you had a representative that always votes the way his constituents wanted him to and then you had one that almost never did but let’s say he did 20% of the time. He would get 20% of what was earmarked for him and the guy that voted 100% of the time would get his total amount plus the other guys 80%. I figure it’s totally fair because they were sent there to represent us in the first place.
Who knows? We the people could end up with a more powerful lobby than Big Oil or the NRA and even be able to hire lobbyist like they do. Properly advertised this has the potential to end corporate rule. If we can’t change the Constitution maybe this is the next best thing.
