Just to play devil's advocate for a minute ... why should the rich
senators and congressmen be the only ones that can sell their votes?

Every four years the little guy is given a choice between Tweedle Dumb and
Tweedle Dumber.  If somebody will pay him twenty dollars for voting, why
not let him get something out of the process?

If somebody tries to force him to vote one way or another without paying,
then he can report it as a crime.  Otherwise, let him enjoy a little
capitalism; it might be his only opportunity to get something out of the
system that the big guys have been milking right along.

All of you libertarians should support the right of anybody to sell his
vote without interference from the nanny state, or else denounce your high
libertarian principles.

Mostly in Fun,
