This isn't what the Internet was designed to be, its not the outpost of freedom we wanted. I am trully disappointed.

The internet was designed to be a way for DARPA contractors to share data without having to mail giant tape spools to each other. "We" didn't get involved until a couple decades later.

Look at the existing franchise laws and how they are being used. It's not really a question that bribes are occurring, it's what lobbying is by it's very definition.

No. Lobbying involves talking and bribery involves illegal money.

If it's "not really a question" then you should be able to provide tons of evidence to back up your claims. How about it?

What this country needs is a good five dollar plasma weapon.
