Do you believe that the American congress & senate are the biggest, most lucrative racket there ....
I would say that the bigger racket is the democratic and republican party. If it were not for these two divergent ideological parties, the Congress might even function.
The source of the congressional racket begins with these parties, and their 3rd party contributors and supporters. They finance their election campaigns on a quid pro quo basis. So when these elected congress people are in power, they work for them, and not the people. That is the racket, as the people only cast the vote, but the strings that control congress are made during the election campaign.
The loyal party member is the mark, and they allow the party to pull their strings, and in turn the 3rd party pulls the strings and runs congress.
It is like putting your kids on the school bus, once in the bus you no longer control your kids. The school then controls your kids, and the school board controls how your kids are controlled.
3rd Party wealthy contributor -> Congress -> political party -> Loyal party voter
The only one in this sequence that doesn't get quid pro quo is the Loyal Party Voter.

I just read and commented on your hub. I agree.

This was done because they thought that a bipartisan passing of...

regardless of anything Iran does or doesn't do, before he leaves his office?My opinion, he's stepping up media agitprop the way he did on Iraq before he invaded that sovereign nation. I think he'll do it and I think not only will he, my stupid Dem Congress will gesture and throw their hands...

What do you think about President Obama so far?People blame the President when the US Congress that is controlled by the Republicans is really screwing over America. How anyone could support the so called Tea Party is beyond me. They really don't care about the average American. They are only...

Why is it that Tea Party type hubs won't post comments from anyone that doesn't see things their...way? Everytime I got to a right wing conservative hub and make a valid arguement about a topic, they won't post my comment. It's like a love fest on those sights, surely not everyone on this site is a...
