A powerful lesson. This guy was a genuine war hero, and brave soldier who allowed greed to have its way.
Nancy Pelosi's comments are just stupid. She acts as if there have been, and are not now corrupt democrats!
Corruption knows no party distinction. ( cf delaware, maryland, etc)
That's why the founding fathers placed limits on the federal government's power. They knew that if too much power was centralised, it would attract corrupt people who wanted to use that power for their profit, as well as corruptible politicians who would sucumb to the allure of greed.
MY point exactly. I am so sick of hearing liberals scream about how EVERYTHING In the world is the fault of republicans, and that the republicans alone are to blame for poor decisions, and faulty actions..... As said above, Corruption, greed, MISTAKES, knows no party distinction....... Would love to hear what you liberals would say about president bush if he were getting something under the oval office desk while on the phone to the senate.....besides a humorous pointless joke.
Nobody will deny that there are bastards and examplary individuals in political parties of diverse convictions. Maybe I should not say nobody will deny, some will try, but that should be a warning sign that they are ready to be thrown into a bottomless pit.
The issue is that liberals are oft criticized for a lack of morality, almost expected to be frauds, or at least shown to be expected to be frauds by their adversaries. If one choses to take that position, then one should better stay away from such reprehensible behavior. Parties claiming to have the help of the guidance of the righteous hand of God should not fault as miserably as the godless liberals who have no moral compass.
Politicians of all convictions might have been true at heart when they began their career, by the time they finish it, they all cheat, they all care about themselves first and foremost, their success, their imprint on society, etc... Consitutancy is nothing more that a means of getting in a position of power, not a people to serve.
Some are more hypocritical than others, especially those who invoke their "religiosity" and have not learn anything from the parable of the speck and the plank. I think that's what Shane is chasing here, and I think that it is fair to point out these failures, after all, the opposite sides never measure their efforts when they have their chance.
