    Power corrupts. That's why government power must be limited as much as possible.
    I think they came in corrupt. They immediately became corrupt and sold principal for money and power. They never had the moral backbone they claimed to have had...with few exceptions (e.g. Joe Scarborough).

    But why continue to support the party and elect them again? I think you have to draw a line in the sand, else things will never change. Why should they change if they keep getting relected?

    You really don't have the intelligence to answer that for yourself, do you, or are you just a whore for democrats?

    None of the current son of a bitches are worth a dam, Obama most of all, He is nothing but a Chicago Machine Politician, and they all have only one thing in mind, and that is to fuck the American Public, while they live the Good life in Washington D.C. with better retirement benefits, health care, and good raises every January 1st.

    They average a $3,000.00 dollar a year pay raise, every year it goes up.

    And that doesn't cover all the perks of office.

    We have to live by the laws they write, and then exempt themselves from.

    Buffalo, why do continue to support a party that continues to screw you? If you and others keep supporting them nothing will change...leave the Democrats out of the picture for now. You keep voting for these guys who have screwed you repeatedly, lied to you, so why should they change.

    You are so afraid of the Democrats to not vote Republican. So why should the Republicans ever do what they say they are going to do if you are going to support them regardless of what they do? How did you become so afraid of anything non Republican?

    By the way, sometimes when I chat with you I feel like I am chatting with a stone. Because stuff just flies over your head...especially if it does not comply with your preconceived ideas. Not that it matters, but I have told you repeatedly I am an Independent voter. I have voted and supported Democrats and Republicans. I vote for the best person not the party.

    Why do you answer a question with a question? And I know this is hard to understand. But I don't support parties, I support the best person for the job. I don't vote party lines. I know it is hard for you to understand this concept.

    Buffalo I find your moniker very appropriate. I was born and raised in Kansas where Buffalo used to roam the prairie in large numbers. So I know a wee bit about buffalo. They are not the brightest of animals. As you may know the American Buffalo faced extinction as white men moved westward in earlier centuries. Hunters would pick a spot and shoot the animals at will. The gunshot would ring out across the prairie and a buffalo would fall, but the herd would not run nor defend itself. The herd would continue to graze as if nothing happened. That herd behavior made it so very easy for one hunter to kill hundreds and thousands of individual animals at one sitting and the buffalo remained clueless to its fate even as the bullet pierced its flesh despite being surrounded by the freshly killed bodies of hundreds and thousands of its freshly slaughtered herd members.

    Because the same question needs to be ask of you, and your, yellow dog, support for the Democrats.

    You seem to not understand that I am not a Republican, I am a registered Democrat, I cannot support the Democrats, and I don't support the Republicans, I support the best course of action for my country, and my Liberal Beliefs.

    True Liberal Beliefs, not the abortion that the Democrats have conceived in the last 60 years.

    When the Party start to forward candidates the likes of John F. Kennedy, Hubert H. Humphry, Henry Martin "Scoop" Jackson, then I will support them again.

    But as of now I vote for the best candidate I can find, who has a chance of success in the election.

    The best candidate as of today for the country is not a Democrat.

    ps: What you know about Buffalo is a wee bit.

    You can't even name the species of Bison that is my Avatar.

    The choice is to vote for a party whose ideals align with my own, but often falls short of those ideals and screws me; or to vote for the party that outright promises to screw me.

    Mad, I think one has to draw the line in the sand somewhere else change will never happen. I refuse to vote for corruption, plain and simple. You go from budget surplus to a half trillion deficit plus ongoing entitlement commitments well into the future. And double the national debt, enough is enough already. And then your solution is to cut taxes, and more deficit spending. That is a recepie for disaster!

    Well Mr. G if the Taliban and al Qaeda are not in Afganistan then who are we fighting in Afganistan? Why did we not get Osama when we had him in Tora Bora?

    Who cares about Iraq? Al Qaeda in Iraq did not exist prior to our invasion of the country. How is Iraq-US mutual defense pact going to benefit me?

    I tell you what, I would much rather see Al Qaeda beheaded and out of business. And I would much rather have a stable government in Afganistan that did not require the presence of American troops to stay in power. And I would rather not be spending hundreds of billions in Iraq proping up that government and paying their bills for them while they have almost a 100 billion dollar surplus accumulated in their bank accounts. Now maybe you like funding the governments of Iraq and Afganistan...so I think you should pay for it. I certianly don't want to pay for it.
