I would expect that the largest industries would also have the greatest resources for lobbying. Oil has been so vital in everything we do that the industry is enormous, and has enormous power.

We need to disassociate business and politics. We also need to disassociate politics and career, as politics was always meant to be an act of service, and not an occupation.

This is a big reason why I say that the Ds and Rs are barely distinguishable, as both will entertain lobbyists and neither has any interest in limiting the power of the Executive branch.

We're corrupt as a species, not as certain group identities.
