Why might politicians fear lobbyists more than voters? Maybe because lobbyists have dark money which can be translated into vote manipulation. Voters have very little recourse in a rigged system. AZ is wonderful to see, the first ever, but look at the horrible way citizens are treated. Why do fewer people vote and have apathy? Cheating. An independent forensic transparent state wide audit would put fear in politicians and ignite voters. Not in the lobbyists best interests.
“ We need look no further than politics. I have come to believe that many of the foolish decisions in American government arise from the simple fact too many politicians have too little fear of the voters and taxpayers.”
