Re: Land of the Free....

Brexit is better than the alternative. The EU Parliament can’t even propose legislation and can only vote on the things a bunch of lobbied (corrupt) leaders of EU countries have decided to push for, it’s a cruel joke.

With that said, perhaps it is about time we banned corporate donations entirely, capped individual donations to a modest (four digit) maximum per year and required open books on financial assets for all our politicians. That would throw a spanner in the works for corrupt lobbying while allowing for legitimate approaches to take place.
