38. Very Good Question!!!

…I remember back in 2015 as the things were beginning to heat up within the Democratic Party & one basically had to make a choice “Clinton or Sanders”! Despite the fact neither one was being honest with the American people ESPECIALLY the Democratic base!! People do like to be lied to.

However, there was this Harvard Law Professor named Lawrence Lessig who at first was trying to work with the Sanders campaign to get them to center their entire campaign around campaign finance reform, expand voting access, reform (re)districting laws/guidelines, etc. IF ELECTED, nothing gets done until these reforms are implemented!

...It became obvious Bernie Sanders wasn’t at all interested in making such reforms be the core to his campaign should he end up getting elected he would have a MEGA-MANDATE from the voters to kick Congress in the ASS! Understanding the Sanders Campaign would rather continue to sale high grade BS to folks for votes Bernie knows NEVER have a chance of ever becoming a reality...Lawrence Lessig tried to start his own campaign. Unlike Bernie, who simply lost to Hillary he was not cheated, Lawrence Lessig was SCREWED HARD! They changed the rules on the fly to prevent Lawrence Lessig from participating in the debates with Hillary & Bernie!! Sucked.

We’re about to do it all over again, watch!!! …There will NEVER EVER BE REAL CHANGE in America until these multi billion dollar elections are gone, voting is easy & lobbyist don’t have the power to force my Congressional Representatives to ignore me!

From Lawrence Lessig Campaign in 2015:
“Citizen Equality Act”
The act was the centerpiece of Lessig's campaign platform, encompassing his plans for campaign finance reform, expansion of voting access, and revised districting laws. Lessig had stated that if elected, he would make these reforms the first priority of his presidency.
