This is definitely one of the biggest problems. Having these guys all together in Washington allows them to create clubs and cliques, collaborate, make deals etc. If they were forced to only meet a couple of times a year we wouldn’t have this mess. There would be less fraud and it would be harder for lobbyists to be effective.

In looking at states with good economies and conservative leaning governments, here are some things that appear to starve liberalism/progressivism and keep government small:

- Constitutional balanced budget law
- Legislatures meet sporadically
- Low state taxes overall (states can’t inflate currency so this works very well at keeping socialism at bay)

You have discovered the real reason for why Texas is still Texas...

If you send a bunch of ‘Representatives’ to a Capitol year round, all they have to do is make laws and regulations and you end up with California,,,
