All the politicians in one room for a year.

by on Oct.04, 2005, under Politics

I was just thinking of this, while reading some articles. Is there any way we can get all the lawyers/politicians locked in one room for a year? At the end of it, whoever’s left alive gets shot, because we know that you apparently have to be the vilest SOB out there to survive in that kind of crowd. It always seems the most powerful of the politiicians are also the most corrupt, the most adept at evading the law. Tom Delay right now is a perfect example of what bothers me so much in this country. I used to think politicians voted the way they do because of their ideals. Lately, it seems more vote because of business deals. The country shouldn’t be run by money – it should be run by heart, by mind, by faith. It shouldn’t be run by people who are out to get richer, but by people who are out to represent the people of the country. ALL of them – not the 1/10th of 1 percent who are already wealthy, own large corporations, and apparently hold senators in their pockets. What happened to such ideals as honesty, honor, integrity??? Maybe I’m naive about this, but that doesn’t mean I can’t wish for SOME level of integrity in our elected officials.
