You know what?
There is a post on this thread that spews truth.
It doesn't matter what these politicians make or gain.
Americans will do nothing about it.
Americans won't quit their jobs.
They won't march on DC in the millions.
Too afraid to lose their precious valuable material possessions.
Man I hate saying those words.
Cold. Hard. Truth.
I hate saying it, as I contemplate why we even pay these people, what can we do?
Stop paying taxes?
Go to jail.
We can't win elections because money gets votes.
The people aren't in power, anymore.
Seriously, ATS, what can we do? (rhetorical)
I've heard all the people's answers.
They are all the same.
Vote! (yeah that has stopped them before
Write your congressman! (the aides just throw away you concerns)
Nothing will stop these people.
In all honesty, until enough Americans get mad and stop feeding the machine...
This will never stop.
130 million people need to agree.
And stop paying CONgress.
That will be the shot heard 'round the world.
The politicians are just laughing at us, because they know we won't stop watching TV or surfing the 'net.
