    Dr Paul,as you have my vote in 2012,and amid all ignored email requests from you,I want to address the problem with politicians,and solutions I pose. 1. Make lobbyism a federal crime. 2. Reduce all governent saliries to 20k…no salary if they can’t comprimise on a budget. 3. Impose a 125 to 300% tax on imports 4. Any American company who employs only documented Americans gets a tax free season for 5 years. 5. Stop tax free status for immagrants sorry for my bad spelling
