My article the other day mentioned the fact that political parties are lobbying organizations and need to be regulated the same way that other lobbyists are scrutinized and limited. Color that a timely end to all the shenanigans, the Diebold Machines, and the Clinton Foundation.
For some reason, that idea came as a huge surprise to many people who had never thought of the Republican Party and the Democratic Party as political lobbies.
And the next thought that arose like a lightning bolt was: "OMG! They are supposed to be lobbying Congress, not running it!"
