As both the presidential (and congressional, for that matter) campaigns and the economic crisis continue to unfold, I become more and more convinced that Larry Lessig’s latest crusade is critically needed. The Change Congress movement is committed to increasing transparency in government, limiting the influence of lobbyists and special interests, supporting publicly financed campaigns, and ending earmarks. I’m a recent convert to some of these positions (public campaign finance, for example), but it’s becoming increasingly apparent that our democracy is broken.

I’m all in:
Change Congress
