133. Thanks for that bit of history, and you're right. Workers have no representation at all.
I wonder about what happens to people when they go to Washington DC to supposedly serve the people. Are they secretly injected with a virus that destroys anything they had inside that was good? Or are they just all weak people who sell themselves out like prostitutes to corporate pimps?

The root of the problem is campaign finance reform. I ran for office in the Reform Party. They believed in tough campaign finance laws. The Rs and Ds were mostly against them, but the conservatives were rabidly against reforms. We have a one party system, the party of whores and both major parties love the 'whoredom' they have created. We don't have a government. We have a brothel.

My suggestions:
No one can donate to any candidate they can't vote for.
No foreign money can be used to finance any local or state elections.
No one can give more than $100 to any candidate.

Better still:
Have publicly financed elections and prohibit all private funds.
Eliminate all political ads and have public debates instead which the media is REQUIRED to air for FREE. (They're our airwaves)
All votes must have a paper trail so they can be verified.

Unless we make these changes our country is doomed. What we have now is a complete disgrace where only the rich get representation. And fuck the average American, even though the poor and middle class built this goddamned country, not the lazy rich...
