Letter Published in Orlando Sentinel- November 3, 2011

Kept meaning to post this, finally managed to do it !  Thanks to all of you who continue to read.  I will be posting some ramblings regarding the most recent developments within the Republican party titled; 

 "Republicans Determined to get Obama Reelected".... stay tuned. 

Anyway, this published Orlando Sentinel, November 3 2011

"Lobbyists make mockery of representative government"

Thanks to the letter writer John D. Towns for his comments Saturday ("Lobbyists would still loom, if incumbents were gone"). The public really needs to understand this fact: Their right to be heard is being undermined by the lobbyists' power and money.
Power and money are what inclines our government toward action. That is why we have a web of laws and tax loopholes that make no sense. That is why each election is another round of the same thing.
As long as money is the grease that lubes the engine of elections, we will have this circle. A representative government no longer exists either in the United States or in Florida and the recent restrictions on voter registration here in Florida underscores that "of the people, by the people and for the people" is a reality only for the naive and gullible.

In My Humble Opinion,
