I mentioned how there were more mature ways of handling the situation, and DoS'ing them is more likely to do more harm than good. But that isn't what I'd like to talk about.
The replies I got were mostly about how doing the "mature thing" (ie - writing to your Congressman) does dittily, because Congressmen are more persuaded by "that proverbial cash" (apologies to Kevin Smith).
Is the US Democratic system broke?? Is the first level guy on Deus Ex spouting a good conspiracy theory (for those that don't play the game, go get it! Its great! But I'll sum it up anyway. Basically, he mentions how big businesses have increased in the past 100 years and privately owned businesses drastically declined. He also mentions the drastic change in taxes and other stuff. This is either because the government is 'controlling' business, or vice versa)??
If it is broken, how can it be fixed??
