    Its nearly impossible to think of congressman as anything more than paid corporate whores masquerading as duly elected 'public servants', alas this is the case we are forced to examine. For the most part each of these frauds enter an elite appendage of government and private-sector influence...which one exerts a greater influence is anyone's guess, but the one certainty is their manifest inability to carry out the oath that each of them swears to!!

    How many Congressmen and women who never had a real job amass net worths of many millions? No one ever seems to question it. The 'public servant' gig pays incredibly well if you play the game and become a career politician.

    Exactly!!!! What the voting public fails to comprehend is that once elected to congress these parasites drop the thinly-veiled pretense that they 'serve the public' and essentially sell their votes to the highest corporate bidders...

    This is one reason a democratic republic has a shelf life. We're reaching the end of ours...

    the scathing irony is that this was never a 'democracy' in any meaningful sense...the correct terms would be plutocracy or corporate polyarchy
