I hate to shatter your naivete, but lobbying is a good thing when not done maliciously.
If we ban lobbying then how will small groups get the attention a problem deserves? What if your church group wants to petition a Governor to move a road because too many kids are getting hit by cars leaving Sunday School? Shouldn't they be allowed to lobby him to sign off on an upcoming spend?
This is just one example but I'm sure you get the point.
Lobbying CAN be a good thing.
If people are truly sick and tired of sitting by and watching what's happening to this country and if people are truly sick and tired of just talking about it and tweeting about it and liking it and sharing it on Facebook its time to take action and get out on the streets and get involved and learn how to get involved even if you don't know how to.
