Here are the simple facts of the great betrayal. Wilson and House knew that they were doing something momentous. One cannot fathom men’s motives and this pair probably believed in what they were up to. What they did not believe in was representative government. They believed in government by an uncontrolled oligarchy whose acts would only become apparent after an interval so long that the electorate would be forever incapable of doing anything efficient to remedy depredations.

ETA: Hopefully this thread will serve as a uniter and encourage us to turn our frustration towards corruption and greed, no matter where it comes from. Choosing a side exclusively only cuts one off from the entirety of the situation, and your illustration is dead on. Let's make the us and them the people and the corruption.

you are parroting the false left right paradigm agenda beezzer.
There are two sides, you are right.
Our elected officials and We The People.
We are divided amongst ourselves by our elected officials. The script is well written.

We The People. . . are the Tea Party. At least some of us.
no one makes anyone read this political madness forum.
some people like to argue and sometimes its down right entertaining.
and some people just need to vent their frustrations.
what i am saying is people are free to do whatever they want
and nothing more.
