"War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few."

- James Madison

Powerful Politicians

When you put power into politicians, many of them will be corrupted, and yet we continue to give them more and more power. Do you think a congresswoman who is giving away scholarships to her grandsons, grandnephews and children of an aide is really looking to be a ward of the people, or looking after her and hers? The answer is demonstrably clear, unless you have rocks spacing your ears.

Read Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson says she'll repay scholarship funds by week's end

Odds are the imbeciles who put her in office for 18 years will do it again, but we can hope...

"While I am not ashamed of helping, I did not intentionally mean to violate any rules in the process." Believable? Her defense is ignorance? For what kind of voter is this acceptable?
