“I am, by default, participating in a fierce competition for democratic expression;
meaning that I, the citizen, compete with giant corporations for influence
over government policy, and the determining factor of such is a politician,
who is essentially another competitor in such a system,
and that his or her choices are swayed by capital, which in terms of amount,
there can be no comparison: I have little and the corporations have much.
But I have a voice. Lend me your ear.” – Makana
