Investing in Government

I am not a particularly wealthy person, but I do have some spare cash which I would like to invest.

I was thinking of buying a politician.

Please understand I am totally apolitical. This would be purely for investment purposes. Having made my purchase, I would then rent-out my politician on an ad-hoc basis to any reasonable group who needs a vote in support of their special cause — the right to arm bears, the death penalty for smoking marijuana,the need to send U.S. troops to bring democracy to _______, ______, and ______ :  As a true liberal,it is all the same to me.

I know what you are thinking:buying and selling politicians is strictly for major corporations and billionaires.

Not true! From what I have read in the newspapers, during the past few years the supply of politicians-for-sale has increased greatly.

I had hoped to start small. I tried to determine what (or rather who) I could buy for under $100.

I must say I was very disappointed. The market seems to be totally disorganized. Even though buying and selling politicians has become a major trade, can you believe, not one newspaper provides daily quotes?

At the same time some politicians have been bought and sold so many times that they have become quite ragged around the edges. It has become very hard to determine just who owns who. I certainly do not want to spend my hard earned money only to find out that my politician is also owned by the NRA , the AMA, the ABA, NMA, the NFL,the BSA as well as 25 other investors. Just as we have title searches before buying land, before buying a politician, we are entitled to know who owns the property.

I am also concerned about long term value of my investment.There was a time when a politician once elected could expect to remain in office until voted out by death (and even then a waiver would often be arranged, particularly for committee chairman). Today that security no longer exists. One minor infraction such as rape, assault with a deadly weapon, not to mention failure to attend Church on a regular basis and my $100 goes out the window.

This is totally unacceptable

I am a true believer in free-enterprise system and I am totally opposed to government interference in business. However, I do think the time has come for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to step in, organize the market, and impose some basic regulations.

I want nothing more than to invest my money in my government. However, as an honest investor I am entitled to protection from the dishonest element who would make our government corrupt.
