It seems to me that the only way to control government is by public referendum. It is a shame our founding fathers, being honest men, did not foresee a time when government would get this out of control, unresponsive to the people and corrupt. Perhaps an amendment to the Constitution is necessary to stop governmental abuse of power, the people and the public purse. How nice it must be to decide your own perqs and payscale as a public servant as well as the level of penury the public must endure.
