Why can't Congress be bought? Is that really the question you're asking?
Bribery is a Felony, and is so for a very good reason.
It has been tried many times
A free press and criminal justice system has made examples of those who have strayed
You have no faint idea of what you're talking about Winger, we do not have anything resembling a 'free press' or an impartial 'criminal justice system'...if indeed this were the case we would see a set of radical reforms in Congress, and mass-indictments...yet all remains as it was! Open your eyes!
We have more of a free press than at any time in human history
ANYONE has access to extend their thoughts and opinions on any subject. Even Trump is allowed to have his own Twitter account
Social media is not the press.
Try to go into a police press conference and tell them you have a Twitter account, let me in.
Of course it is
See which amendment would be cited if government tried to restrict content on social media
Go into any press conference then, just show them your twitter account.
There is big press and little press and thousands of levels of press in between
Just read the interweb and you can see the wide range of political thought. Rather than local papers with limited distribution, you can access any paper in the world with the click of a mouse
We have a more open press than at any time in history
Ummm... a press conference is for The PRESS. Not for dingbats like you and and others who promulgate conspiracy theories and make a hobby out of being an iconoclast. Your constant skulduggery is callow.
