In order to obstruct the onslaught of the oligarchs, I propose that all lobbying payments must be matched with payments of exact proportion, henceforth referred to as the “Freedom Funds Clause” in order to maintain equal access to the government for the working people of these United States, the matching monies would go to fund citizen initiatives, and some held in escrow to establish a claims fund for damages suffered by workers and inhabitants in and around the plants and operations of firms lobbying our government and also to fund guardian groups such as the EPA and Elizabeth Warrens CFPB among others. - With every registered lobbyist held legally responsible for the reporting of said payments, who would face jail time for defrauding the American taxpayer for any nondisclosure. And while we’re at it- why not matching payments for campaign contributions and political advertising as well whereby the money goes directly to social safety net programs

Americans are facing a crisis in government and it has some parallels in the American revolution of the 18th century; taxation without proper representation. How have we gotten to the point that it is considered acceptable that most politicians lie in order to get elected? Each election seemingly brings less relief and more broken promises... We are no longer represented in any manner that could be considered congruent to our needs. We are fed talking points by the corporate controlled media to hurl past each other and in so doing alienate ourselves from our fellow Americans, thereby dividing and distracting ourselves for the conquering corporations as they continue their insidious takeover of our government; bought and paid for piece by legislative piece, inexorably rendering us The Amalgamated States Of America....
