    •  You should do the right thing because it's right, (0+ / 0-)

      not because you are afraid you will be punished (by the electorate, or God) if you don't.  

      I just find it funny that politicians get a pass when it is clear that, most of the time, we have to force them into doing the right thing.  All of Wall Street's money won't help you if you can't win the Election.

        You can go your own way on that one.

        Pols are pols and do what they do.

        This has been true since a group of plain ole ordinary people shot at British soldiers in Lexington and forced the vaccilating politicians to pick a side.  (shrug)

        True---but all of Wall Street's money can certainly help you WIN the election.  Which is why both parties scramble madly for it.
