    Frankly, I believe that as long as our legislators put re-election at or near the top of their agenda, legislative "solutions" will continue to be politically polarized in support of those that contributed the most money to their election campaigns. All the rest is just blah-blah...

    I think you are on the right path, all that sh*t about X% of this and X% of that is pointless. Because the people of this country don't have a say in the way it is being run. We the people of this country can take a good person and send them to Washington, and the lobbists for the big money in this country will swoop in and buy them off and the people get screwed agin.

    The question I'd like to have the answer to is, Why do we need Representatives to represent us in America today? Why not just post the laws to be voted on, on a web site and let the people cast their own vote. To keep it legal post all votes on the site so that when the vote is over with you can go and make sure your vote was represented right. This way the true vioce of the people will be heard. If you are a minority then you are just going to have to live with the rule of the majority and hope that the morals of the majority protect your rights. I don't think you would be any worst off than with the system we have now with big money keeping all of us down.

    The good citizens of the USA are too stupid to elect decent representatives and you what them to understand the ramifications of the actual laws well enough to vote correctly on them. Yeah, that'll work.

    You cater to more people by having fewer rules. Every part of this country has communities that know what's best for it.

    I think that the things which make people happy in life are not that complicated. But we now live in a culture of entitlement where everyone's desires should be fulfilled by government - and yes, this goes for both modern conservatives AND liberals.

    To answer the base question no there is not. There is no shortage of people in this country who want to steal, oppress and kill under some bull**** guise.
