Is lobbying a legitimate practice? What are the pros and cons?

Free speech: Is lobbying a natural extension of free speech?

Pro

  • Lobbying is an expression of freedom of speech. The First Amendment of the United States Constitution, for example, states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances." Lobbying is a natural expression of these rights, giving voice to the opinions and desires of organized groups such as businesses, advocacy groups, and unions.
