"So what in the world has happened?" publisher Steve Rose asked in a recent column. "The Republican Party has changed, and it has changed monumentally. You almost cannot be a victorious traditional Republican candidate with mainstream values in Johnson County or in Kansas anymore." Ron Freeman, executive director of the Kansas GOP, called the migrating candidates -- Parkinson, Morrison and seven state House candidates, including one party-switching incumbent -- "a simple case of political opportunism."


Here in Colorado our senator Ben Nighhorse Campbell ran as a Democrat, and turncoated right around and became a Republican after the election. Our current senator, the ever so esteemed Mr. Salazar, ran as a Democrat and then voted for the torture bill.

Do you get it now? Do you understand what politicians (spit!) are yet? They do not believe in your "party." They do not care about "principle." They are not interested in your "values." They are not concerned with being the peoples' "representative." They are spinless, skulking cowards who care about only one thing - the pursuit and retention of power. Nothing more. If switching parties will give them more power, they do it without hesitation. They do not have consciences. They do not have "moral compasses". They are power-mongering scum. That's all.

You wonder why your government is corrupt from top to bottom? Just take a look at the people in it.

(There is perhaps ONE man out of 1500+ in this Congress who is not a pathetic, simpering, toady. And I have nothing but praise for him. The rest of them? Well...)

Tac nuke. DC. NOW!

If G-d wants to pull a Sodom & Gomorrah act on DC, that's perfectly OK with me.

Not sure that's really a solution. There *are* people living in DC that have nothing to do with the government. Ironically, they have effectively no representation the Congress. Meanwhile, our "representatives" are elsewhere for much of the time.

The system is designed such that nobody who is actually representative of the people can mount a campaign to represent those people.

Not to mention I'd have to destroy all those cool old buildings who, after all, can't be held responsible for the idiots who inhabit them.

Maybe a Neutron Bomb would be better, if we can just get all the non-politicans out.
