We all know that almost no politician is completely clean. They’ve all got someone else’s grubby little fingers in their pockets, telling them exactly what to vote for. I think it goes without saying that Bernie Sanders might just be the only one who is actually clean, and this is a huge problem for all the people out there who hate being kind to others and sharing what you have with the needy; they need someone clean, too. This just isn’t gonna happen. You’re expecting people to serve their country faithfully while only getting paid the amount they agreed to when they took the job? Ridiculous!
So, if politicians aren’t gonna not accept “donations” from lobbyists, what can we do to help the American people know what they’re really voting for? I suggest that all politicians be forced to wear NASCAR-style jackets whenever they are performing any professional duties. These jackets will have patches advertising exactly which multinationals have bought them off and are influencing their vote. This won’t exactly solve the problem, I bet that not every politician is fashionable enough to decide it might just look better to not accept dirty money than that horrible jacket does, but it will at least help people know what they’re getting themselves into. When we have major corporations literally pushing the US into military conflicts, like ITT in Chile, Union Carbide in India, United Fruit in Guatemala, Gulf Oil stopped us from going into Angola but only because they’d lose money, First National Bank of NY and Haiti, and Standard Oil of NJ in Russia (look them up, it’s all true). Maybe, just maybe, the people show know they really vote for the big corporation playing puppets with our politicians.
