To the Editor:
We like to believe that our vote puts us in control, but abundant and consistent evidence makes it clear that the candidates supported by the most money will be the winner. This has given us a Congress that is populated by little more than indentured servants providing us with government of the few, by the few, and for the few.
We cannot stop the flow of money, but there is a way to render it powerless. We can change the term of office and make every seat in Congress permanent. It requires a constitutional amendment that Congress must initiate, so there must be a benefit to the member of Congress in order to gain their cooperation. I think the prospect of no more elections or fundraising and a permanent job can attract the two-thirds majority needed.
