Twenty years ago, for example, Microsoft employed no lobbyists. They first hired lobbyists as an act of self-defense. This is what the bribes were all about--simply trying to do business with customers who wanted their service.

If you don't like a service, you don't have to use it. But why do you want to take it away from others?

It's like all these people who bitch about open seating on Southwest Airlines. If you don't like open seating, don't fly Southwest. I like their open seating and don't need to hear all the complaints.

The best additional amendment would've been a "separation of economy and state" amendment.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of business, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;...". Without that, it's the same old same old. Bribe or flee.
