It’s a Wide Open World.
We now have opensecrets.org. In muckraker’s heaven, there’s a new world.
- 195 million records tracking campaign fundraising and spending
- 3.5 million records on lobbyists, their clients, fees
- personal assets, liabilities and transactions of Congress
- shadow records of unlimited money from corporations, unions and individuals
For every unemployed, there’s a stupid leader. For every lost dollar, there’s a lobbyist. For every favor, there’s government insiders. For every starving journalist, there’s failed news.
Fix it. Get a shovel and dig dirt.
There’s gold here. Nuggets of history. Shine of tomorrow.
