Regaurdless of opinion I will always feel a government should be afraid of the power of the people. Our government should be a reflection of its people and far too long there has been a disconnect between our elected individuals and those who they are meant to represent.
I may be wrong but I think the disconnect is proportional to the amount of corcporate lobbying feeding politicians wallets...

I agree. How can our elected officials represent us when they go to Washington D.C and leave multi millionaires? Why are you serving this country? To get rich or to better the country? Why is lobbying even legal? It's just a round about bribe...
Oops. Corporate. Not corCporate. My bad (I blame the tiny keyboard on my phone ;))... Anyway, I've not delve into how and when lobbying has entered the political world to the extent we have now, knowing it certainly has been a slow and constant increase during the past decades. But it is absolutely one of the biggest threat to our society now, imho.
