We hear many rants for this politician, or that politician and possible crimes, but do they actually do time, so let's take a look at the facts.

Let's take a step outside the games, MSM, and political brain-washing.

Hoping people can "Deny Ignorance" and see a pattern here. Personally I never want to see another civil-war because of politicians, and industrialists stirring the pot. In war, only the common people are subjected to degrees of loss, and the people at the top win financially.

How many high ranking politicians actually do time, even though there is massive evidence against them?

en.wikipedia.org...


This list consists of American politicians convicted of crimes either committed or prosecuted while holding office in the federal government. It includes politicians who were convicted or pleaded guilty in a court of law; and does not include politicians involved in unprosecuted scandals (which may or may not have been illegal in nature), or politicians who have only been arrested or indicted.


Here's a partial list the rest people can go to Wiki.

As we the general population pick sides, fight over crumbs, and can do years in prison for petty crimes; the main characters that are suppose to represent us live like kings and queens, above the law.

It amazes me how people fawn over their political hero/partisan side, when deep down they know that they have nothing in common with them financially, politically, or even socially.

Not sure who is more out of touch, those people that fawn, or the politicians that believe they are entitled to anything and everything.

Imagine if the FBI wasn't so corrupt and actually did their damn job and honor the Constitution.

Combined wealth of the house and Senate about four billion dollars, and that's just what we can see. One thing is clear, crime does pay.
The US government:
THE BEST LEGISLATURE THAT MONEY CAN BUY!!!

Polititions usually win because they know how to deceive people better than the ones they run against. Or they are just good at BSing people to believe what they say. I would bet that the majority of congressmen have broken some laws or just screwed people over.

Someone who is honest probably won't desire to get involved in politics and have to deal with deceivers on a daily basis. There are some good politicians, but less than half of them do not have skeletons in their closets.

I posted this mainly to remind myself not to get caught up, in all the smoke-screens that get tossed our way. It's maddening how much BS both sides perpetrate, yet are never truly held accountable for.

The promises, chest-beating, how they are going to hold the other side accountable is laughable at best, because behind the scenes, we all know they are in a special class.

I won't get caught-up in picking one side over the other, or that one side is less corrupt, they are both despicable.


That list should be 100 pages long.
