  • Last time I checked all politicians were liars and cheats so I am not surprised. There is always always drama in Washington. Its almost like some sort of rule.

  • I don't know. They ALL talk such a good game and are all SO slick! :( BOTH parties seem to have this problem too. I think people get a taste of power and will then do anything to keep it!

  • It's a sad thing, all of this corrupt crap going on right now. No party is immune to scandal. With this current mess going on, I really hope that they punish the people that are guilty of crimes (just like with any scandal). I doubt the American people will hear everything on those 300 hours of taped conversations (who has time for that), but I would hope that the best interest of our nation will be served. I sort of doubt it will (as with any scandal in DC, this one will just take down a few players and then we will all forget about the rest). This being said, politics is a dirty game, and if you aren't dirty, you don't get anywhere. JMO.

  • Start in your town. Write letters. Get involved! The only way to take our nation back is to actually take a step!

  • With modern technology and rapid IT spreading information, it's just that we are informed of it now. This has been going on since Julius Cesar's time.

  • Our system of govt only works when the people get involved. Considering how many moms I saw on here that were practically proud that they didn't vote and "have no interest in politics because it doesn't affect me" I would say the people are not getting involved enough to make much difference. If we stand up and make our voices heard we can change things.

  • Politics breeds greed and corruption. We as Americans need to get real and do our duty to vote the bad guys out and the good guys in. Voter Apathy is terrible in the US and that is the only way we can change things. I just hope the next 2 yrs make enough people mad as heck so they will vote as warrented
