  1. I agree! Seriously – what’s the reason for shutting down communication between a congress person and the people they are supposed to represent. What’s going to happen: are they going to have higher chance of being bought off? There’s already plenty of opportunity for that, they will sell out if they want to. Restricting communication is not going to change anything. God forbid that they actually *talk* to people and find out what they want. Oh no! They won’t be under the influence of lobbyists as much! Whatever shall we do??

    Dave – This is great. I think this gives me a totally different, but more interesting post. Will link of course. Thanks!

    It appears to me that government of the people, for the people and by the people has no meaning to those in power who want to remain in power.

    If the politicians start using sites full of ads and political statements, the public will avoid these sites, just as we do now for sites full of ads and pop-ups.

    By in large, the public is smarter than Congress thinks we are.
