Lobbying is traditionally how people are empowered to influence political change. Politicians will hear from lobbyists representing people's issue when they have enough of their constituents behind them. Although not as powerful and pro-active as direct democracy processes, lobbying is the other main option available short of civil disobedience and protest. Marches and protests are the ultimate natural contingency when politicians do not represent us and lobbying fails. We do have the ability to mobilize people behind anti-corruption candidates in every state and this should be our primary critical mass action when initaitive, referendum, recalls and citizen grand jury processes are not available.
