You have plenty of audacity tonight.

One of the reasons I came here is that Constitution, so tread lightly please.

We would have to change the constitution to bar Lobbying. There is a right to petition the government. There is no right to do that publicly. I think that if all lobbying had to be done in public documents, on line or in front of C-span video cameras, the government would take huge strides toward going back to being of the people and by the people.
