It's becoming a culture of corruption and stupidity.
In addition, these folks appear to be above the law.
All of the aforementioned are still in office, living
like the royalty they think they are.
Remember: This all happened in just the FIRST QUARTER, folks!

S-a descoperit ca Rangel nu a platit jumatate de milion de $$ pe care ii datora. Deci inca mai sint lucruri ascunse.

Eu cred ca s-ar platii toate datoriile acestei tari daca cineva ar scoate toti banii care ii datoreaza tipii astia si altii ca ei...


All of this is good, and the last lines are the best.

Let's all REMEMBER this as the elections of 2010 are drawing near. And for sure in 2012

Not long ago I read a joke... It said all the politicians running for president are promising change to the American people. We send them billions and billions of tax dollars and they send us the change.

Funny? Not really; there is too much truth in it to be funny.

But that got me to thinking... They all promise change.

A restoration that would take us back in time to a place where things ran better, smoother and life was more enjoyable.

Change? That, in truth, is what they have been giving us all along.

We used to have a strong dollar...
Politicians changed that.

Marriage used to be sacred...

Politicians have changed that.

We used to be respected around the world... Politicians changed that.

We used to have a strong manufacturing economy... Politicians changed that.

We used to have lower tax structures... Politicians changed that.

We used to enjoy more freedoms... Politicians changed that.

We used to be a large exporter of American-made goods... Politicians changed that.

We used to teach patriotism in schools... Politicians changed that.

We used to educate children in schools... Politicians changed that.

We used to enforce LEGAL citizenship... Politicians changed that.

We used to have affordable food & gas prices...

Politicians changed that, too... and one could go on and on with this list.

What hasn't been changed, politicians are promising to change that as well, if you will elect them.

When, oh when, is America going to sit back with open eyes and look at what we once were and where we have come and say "enough is enough"?

The trouble is, America 's youthful voters today don't know of the great America that existed forty and fifty years ago.
They see the world as if it has always existed as it is now.

When will we wake up? Tomorrow may be too late. When will America realize... Politicians are what is wrong with America ? This goes for BOTH parties... Republicans and Democrats, there is no difference anymore... they all do only what they can to be re-elected, not what is best for the citizens!

What is needed is for the Constitution to be amended to limit all Senators and Representatives to TWO terms in office like the President.

Oh, by the way, no big pension either, social security just like the rest of us.. How do they rate bigger and better entitlements than the people THEY WORK FOR - WHICH IS US!!

Being a politician shouldn't be a person's life work but rather a call to public service, then back to being an honest hard-working citizen.

Politicians are no more than housekeepers and janitors... unfortunately they act like they own the building.
