There are elites in Washington DC, who feed on power. Many of them are corrupt. Many of them are immoral. Many of them want to take your freedoms from you. Some of them want to turn our country into a big welfare state.

Many of them have an attitude that they are above the law. They are the ruling class, the brilliant, the untouchables and we; well we are just the “little people.” Too stupid to know what is best for us.

We have a president that blatantly stands before the American people and lies. This president may not even be a citizen of this country and may have produced a forgery in order to further dupe the American people. The proof of his forgery has now been submitted in a 23- page dossier to the FBI. So we shall see.

We have senators and representatives that embezzle money, lie, and bribe. They stick money in freezers, trump up phony reparations and entitlements and do so in order to maintain their power and enrich themselves. They don’t give a dam about the people they represent. They go to Washington DC men of average means and leave millionaires.

We have congressmen sending out lewd photos to young women, engaging in sex acts in the Oval office, spending million of dollars on mistresses, fathering illegitimate babies, using prostitutes, snorting coke in DC hotels, funneling contracts to their relatives, having affairs with White House interns and so on and so on. They want us to vote for them anyway.

It is a clique. They support each other and cover for each other. At first they lie and deny. Then they go to great lengths to hide their corruption. How many of them do you suppose have been compromised? How many have succumbed to black mail when all else failed.

Well, I think we are on to them and Americans are beginning to fight back. We want our country back. We want honest and respectable people leading our country. We want the phonies and liars out.

What can we do? Well being informed helps. Facing the truth about a candidate you thought was the second coming might help. Term limits would help. Joining the grass roots movement of the Tea Party would help.

I think it’s about to happen.

Yes, we are ll fed up, but pretty much we get what we deserve. As voters we all have to step up to the plate and be informed. If we had done that, Obama would not be in the White House and Weiner would have been a porn star.

mslizzee - There are so many rotten apples in our barrel that new apples added to the mix are quickly spoiled. The good ole boy club makes it very clear to all newly elected how the game is to be played. Those who do not play the corruption game find themselves with little or no support and cooperation from their fellow politicians. Look back at how the so called ethics committee handled the Charlie Rangel situation. He had to stand before a band of crooks and admit that he also was a crook. Wow, were they ever surprised!

Term limits would serve us well to keep the apple barrel as pure as possible.

Yes, old POol, they are a barrel of rot. I'm all for term limits. These greedy, spoiled, crooked people, go to DC, just rubbing their hands together in glee, knowing they are set for life in a cushy job with tons of perks, and they will soon be very rich and screwing the public.

They are not above it all. Some have lost big time, and others are about to lose.

good one.

The problem is deeper than a Weiner, he is just the latest one that got caught when the lights went on. You know, when you turn on the lights, and the roaches run.

So if you see one, then you know there a many more in the dark.

Thanks

Signs of our ill-informed public. A good list. Interesting whose photo is at the top.

Hi Ms Dee: It seems to be prevalent in both parties. At least Republicans shoot them out of office when they get caught. The Democrats seem to hang on, lie, confess, cry, refuse to go then go. hahahahah
