In his letter of 1785 to George Whatley, Founding Father Benjamin Franklin wrote about The People’s elected representatives:

“They are of the people, and return again to mix with the people, having no more durable preeminence than the different grains of sand in an hourglass. Such an assembly cannot easily become dangerous to liberty. They are the servants of the people, sent together to do the people’s business, and promote the public welfare; their powers must be sufficient, or their duties cannot be performed. They have no profitable appointments, but a mere payment of daily wages, such as are scarcely equivalent to their expences; so that, having no chance for great places, and enormous salaries or pensions, as in some countries, there is no triguing or bribing for elections.”

How far we’ve fallen from Ben Franklin’s enjoinment!

Today, our elected representatives in Congress are regularly plied with bribes called “campaign donations.” If you think senators and representatives are not persuaded by those “campaign donations,” then you must think they are a species apart and not made of the same human nature as you and I.

Below is a list of Senators who were paid off to support S. 510, the so-called “FDA Food Safety and Modernization Act” that will create 17,000 food bureaucrats and threaten America’s small farms and even home gardeners. I’ve colored in red bribes of especially large sums.
