    Franklin wasn't kidding when he said "A democracy, if you can keep it". We the people have been remiss at our end of the equation, degrading politics to just a shallow us-vs-them team sport that we watch instead of fully engaging in. Think of it as: this site has ONLY 1 million+ uids or Red State has ONLY whatever no. of uids. Civics is barely covered in K-12 and infomedia is way too heavy on horse-race analysis compared to figuring some truths as to how we should govern ourselves.

    BTW. It's only the few/all Governors in Illinois who are corrupt all the other politicos are pure as the driven snow (when that snow is down wind of the coal slag heap). ;}

      When I moved out here from the east coast, the first election I voted in was for the county sheriff. The incumbent won and the day after the election, he arrested his opponent for trying to blackmail people into voting for him.

      Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does.
