Public's Class Action Lawsuit against Washington's Lobbyists!
24 May 2008
The sick reality that Lobbyists are spending "$3 Billion a Year" in Washington to influence and bribe the American Govt. is in reality a form of "Racketeering" and can be prosecuted under the Rico Act and many more statutes!
The facts are that there are over "40.000" Lobbyists in Washington DC and they spend over $3 Billion Dollars each year to "influence" the US Govt.into doing things in their selfish favour!

This outrageous amount of corporate lobbying to a supposedly democratic government amounts to out and out "Bribery" of American Govt.Officials with the added negative effect of corrupting and corroding the people's hard fought for "Democracy"!
Especially damaging to the US Constitution and American Democracy are the lobbyists for the "Corporate War Mongers" who look for any reason to instigate foreign wars, solely to enrich themselves at the expense of the taxpayers and the hundreds of thousands of innocent victims they prey upon!

That this lobbying "Fraud" is obviously the case what can be done to take back from the corporate vultures,the once democratic government,for the people,ho it was supposed to serve and not the greedy corporate fascists?

A Class Action Lawsuit by the American public against the 40.000 plus Lobbyists in Washington,for "Illegally" debasing,corrupting and "buying off" their government and public officials and in doing so,destroying the American Democracy!
The fact that Lobbyists are spending "$3 Billion a Year" in Washington to influence and bribe the American Govt. is in reality a form of "Racketeering" and can be prosecuted under the Rico Act and many more statutes!
This lawsuit could be well rounded out by adding the names of American politicians to the list along with their crone lobbyists.
If theres a way to take back America for the people this would be a good start!
