I agree with you.
And that goes back to what i've been saying all along
You dont really have a choice in a corrupt vs. non-corrupt politician. They're all corrupt - its part of the job description.
So. You have to choose the one who best suits you and what you want.

i'm a tax paying citizen, and i vote for whoever does the best for ME. Is that selfish? You bet your ass it is.
And i have every right to be
