Ever since the deregulation of banks and utilities began in the 70-80's, the rich are getting richer. We need to come up with an election system that doesn't make candidates depend on corporate money; which is what sways the legislators and makes them obligated to them. Politicians have a hard enough time with issues, they don't need to work on 'buying votes'. We need to reform campaign financing.

Typical Hightower: homespun, acerbic with a touch of southern hospitality, and relentlessly optimistic about the rest of the country (outside Washington), convinced that they by and large agree with him on most things.
