The TED Talk That Exposes The Horrible Truth About Elections In the United States

There is corruption at the heart of American politics caused by the dependence of Congressional candidates on funding from the tiniest percentage of citizens. “And how does that affect me?” you ask. It affects everything you care about. Everything about your future. If you want to fix it, check out www.Represent.Us

 

One response to “TEDx Exposes Truth About Elections In the United States | Lawrence Lessig

  1. Legislation will not “get money out of politics”, it is always there. Too many people trusted Feingold and McCain to do exactly that with the so-called “Campaign Finance Law”, but all it did was to make it harder to get money out of politics, because the guys in Congress work with the “tiny percentage” lobbyists to grant favors, while voting largess to the poorest to support ideological dependence on them.

    We don’t need “poverty pets” –scapegoats in Congress for fiat money borrowing and devaluation (aka “inflation” that robs working families) and favors for cronies in both directions. Laws don’t turn corrupt elected people into pure elected people, like Ron Paul’s example.
