Echo? Echo? Echo?

In " It's the power, stupid!" (http://livefreeormove.blogspot.com/2006/01/its-power-stupid.html, I wrote,

when it comes down to talking about lobbyists, special interests, and Congress, It's the power, stupid! If the citizens would take care to place strict limits on the power they allow Congress to wield, corruption and scandal would be very rare indeed.

Today, the great Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) writes,

Last week I mailed each of my congressional colleagues a copy of a speech outlining my views on the lobbying and ethics scandals engulfing Washington. I’m afraid many of them won’t like my conclusion: to reduce corruption in government, we must make government less powerful – and hence less interesting to lobbyists.
