Let's auction government lobbying liceances, and tax political campaign contributions

Let's slightly restrict the number of lobbying liceances and publically auction that right to lobby legislature, so as to raise government revenue, as well as to pit lobbyist against lobbyist, (for our own enjoyment).

Let's highly tax political contributions beyond $100 per person, to raise revenues for the public good, and to counter and reduce the influence of the few moneyed interests. Let's tax 95% of political contributions to candidates after the first hundred bucks, and have those publically reported.

Let's also require all politicians to publically report lobbyist interactions by a searchable schedule, so as to trace influence back.
