Follow the money. The following are just two reasons why there is so much corruption in Washington.
- Politicians have created a cabal with the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve provides a perfect tool for politicians to obtain unlimited funding for election campaigns. In exchange, the Fed gets the government protection providing insulation from the workings of a free market. (The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin)
Solution: End the Fed, bring back intrinsic monetary system.
- Each congressman is required to pay to their respective national party committee an amount of $150,000 – $950,000, to keep their seat. Those who raise more money, have their pick of committee chairs. Whoever, raises the most money, is the majority leader. (Extortion: How politicians extract your money, buy Votes, and line their own pockets by Peter Schweizer)
Partial Solution: All monies collected by the congressman, through political fundraising, should be paid directly to the local republican clubs in the congressman’s district. If the local party chooses to give money to the national party, then our choices are made locally.
