Posted on 07/12/2013 3:51:22 AM PDT by Biggirl
WASHINGTON Sex. Drugs. Cheating on a spouse.
Those words used to add up to shame. Put them in the same sentence as a politicians name, and they ended careers.

Depends on the party.
Democrats and RINOs support slavery, rape, cannibalism
and crucifixion, beheadings, and terrorism along with
open borders. THEY GET AWAY with everything.
How old is this article?
There should be no political ‘careers’. Public service is not supposed to be a ‘career’. Strict term limits are absolutely necessary for us to save what’s left of America. You can’t prevent corruption from becoming entrenched when you have career politicians.
Well I would like to get away from the Martin/Zimmerman stuff for once.
The wimming statement of the day!
You are sooooo right!
This is Bill Clinton’s rancid legacy of low character expectations for Democrats. They are shielded by their lapdog liberal press, who would cover up for Hitler if he were a Democrat.
However, let a Republican say one word about the evil of abortion, and he is driven from the campaign as the media hounds him with its “war on women” meme. Republicans are expected to be as flawless as Jesus.
How come our founders didn't foresee this problem and initiate term limits?
When the rats have a scandal, it becomes a bullet in their resume under ‘Significant Achievements’.
The problem is, where are the CHRISTIAN leaders?
So Rush Limbaugh in that regards then.
TV has lowered the bar for decades, morals are things to be laughed at in sitcoms.
You got it!
If it's a Democrat/Liberal/Progressive, the mainstream media will prop them up. Why, because when they continue their wicked behavior the media makes a lot of money off their antics.
However, if its a Republican/Tea Party/Conservative, the mainstream media will shout about how horrible they are.
The difference is called BIAS and a Corrupt Media.
“How come our founders didn’t foresee this problem and initiate term limits? “
Don’t know, but I suspect it’s at least partially because all of them had real jobs (e.g. farmers etc.) and didn’t think of public office as something anyone would aspire to as a lifetime occupation. They also didn’t likely see the expansive array of perks that now come with these jobs.
How come our founders didn’t foresee this problem and initiate term limits?
They did see it and realized term limits are not the answer. Ben Franklin A republic if you can keep it, Thomas Jefferson The government you elect is government you deserve.
They knew that when the people stopped paying attention to the quality of their leaders the republic is lost and no Band-Aids will help.
Yes, I was thinking along those lines as well.
Career politicians or newbies every election cycle are not the problem nor solution. The elected officials are but puppets for public display and appearances of legitimacy.
The problem is the one constant that never changes with any election and that is the seat of power, the political mobs constituted by two major crime families, Democrat and Republican with lesser regional oligarchs such as Daley etc.
Anyone set on eliminating corruption best be ready to destroy the mob(s).
