Right On, Brother!

Lynne Kiesling

Radley Balko on lobbying:

Do they not understand that lobbying is the inevitable, inescapeable product of a massive federal government? … If Franks is really concerned about corporate power and corruption in Washington, the best way to address his concerns would be to stop giving Washington so much power, and so much discretion to distribute that power. Shrink the federal government, return power and money to the private sector, castrate Congress, and drown the regulatory state.

One thought on “Right On, Brother!

  1. Also interesting to note is that lobbying is virtually the only profession that is constitutionally protected.

    Amendment I
    “Congress shall make no law … abridging … the right of the people peaceably to … petition
    the Government for a redress of grievances.”
