Why are you people so hard on lobbying by the defense industry? According to the Wikipedia (see below) the defense industry barely ranks in the Top 10 sectors regarding lobbying. You guys are always on the case of Lockheed Martin. Why not the health care industry? Or the education industry? Or the AARP? What makes their money better or their cause nobler than Lockheed Martin or Boeing?
