@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @Burke_Esq @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @askeamonn If people can only get into the US #Senate with millions of campaign-funds the system is broken. Also see the multi-million $-villas US career-politicians have.
The are really lobby-agents for their donors. It is a bought #democracy!

@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @Burke_Esq @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @askeamonn 2. #Obama has worked as a lawyer for a short time, thereafter politics, but is worth millions.
The #Clintons broke after Bill was no longer #president (legal fees), years later worth $200 millions (with $330 to 400K speaking-fees = bribe-money).
#Lobbycrats
@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @Burke_Esq @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @askeamonn 3. The "lefty" #BernieSanders owns 3 villas.

This is a regime of lobbycrats serving mainly the 1%.

Only solution: Limit donations to an amount not exceeding $1.000. Also ensure that all business-dealings of active politicials are made public. Non-discosure mustcarry penalties.
@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @Burke_Esq @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @askeamonn 4. Compare #Germany: #Merkel earns lesss than I got in my first VP-role (but she gets a much better pension). Here not disclosed donations of €25.000 are front page news. An average #senator in the #US needs $3 million per year (campaign-donations).
@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @Burke_Esq @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @askeamonn 5. At the end a system where political access requires millions of dollars, is a system run by those who have the money! Not a real #democracy, but a #plutocracy for the #OnePercent!
