With the latest story about Comey and the DOJ not pursuing criminal actions, it has disillusioned me to the point where I'm actually thinking about joining the dark side.
I mean, why not!
I've seen plenty of corruption and graft in my long life, and yet I always tried to do the right thing. Stay law-abiding. Follow the rules. Be honest, sincere in my work and whatever I do.
People work in government for a few years earning a paltry 5-figure GS salary and walk away multi-millionaires. They commit atrocious crimes and get book deals and spots on CNN, MSNBC, even FOX.
Why should I be any different? The rule of law is a joke, politics is even a greater joke, and people still profit from it. I know plenty of politicians here in Oregon. It'd be easy.
I'm fairly smart. Hell, a crap-ton smarter than morons like Omar, Beto, Cortez etc and they're raking in millions!
Maybe I should be a leftist. I'd be able to keep my guns because the rules wouldn't apply to me. While everyone is paying high taxes and getting crap medical care, I could be mingling with the elite and getting top-notch care and do everything as tax-exempt.
Obeying the law, believing in the Constitution has gotten me doodly-squat.
I could be raking in the green and laughing at you all, like they do, all the way to the off-shore bank!

Having the powers of not giving a crap about anything but your bank account and your immediate surroundings wouldnt make you a good leftist.
You're good right where you are.
