You'd make a great production editor for FoxNews, Nick.

 

Perhaps someone with more time on their hands will be inspired to show the other side of the coin you've conveniently managed to ignore here.

 

If you honestly believe that the Republican Party, taken at a glance as you've done here with the Democrats, are more "honest" and more committed to doing right by you as a person, then you're more naive than I would have ever thought.

 

Call it cynicism if you'd like, but Lord Acton had it right: "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."

Give yourself a pat on the back, Nickolas. You have provided a wonderful example of basic politics. When your guy is caught with his pants down, you point out that the Emperor has no clothes.

 

By diverting attention away from your party's current problems and onto past problems of the other party, you hope to make people either forget your party's problems, or to become so disgusted they give up.

Both parties have had their bad actors. Nothing is accomplished by slinging mud.

 

I think that we should ignore party and vote for the person that best represents our values. I vote for candidates from both sides of the aisle based on a number of criteria. I don't like candidates that are too cozy with the religious right. I'll never vote for a candidate that grandstands on gay issues.

 

On the other hand, a democrat whose rhetoric sounds like North Korean or an Iranian propaganda has absolutely no chance of getting my vote.

 

We are all Americans. Mistakes have been made by our country. At this point let the zipperheads overseas talk smack about us. Let us pull together and put some some responsible leadership into office that is focused on fixing our unattended problems, and racheting down the conflicts we are ensnared in.

I love how instead of coming up with facts, the first thing you do is try to use an ad hominem attack against me. Did my list ruffle your feathers, Rob?? Appearently so. So here's what you need to do. Go get yourself a list together with Republican crooks and post it. Surely it can't be that hard to do.

I don't remember ever saying in my post that the Republicans are more honest than anyone other party, I merely pointed to the fact that the Democrats are full of crooks. Show me one place in my post where I said the Republicans are more honest or more committed to doing right by anyone.

It seems to me that you made a bunch of accusations before you thought. I would say you really ought to think twice about who you're calling naive.

 

Disband the UN!!!

Nickolas, you're a writer, and a good one at that. A good writer knows how to make a point without having to declare it openly in the text of his writings. Now if attacking Dems was not a conscious intent with your post, try re-reading it from a perspective of a reader, not the author of the words. Again, make the honest attempt to look at it the right way, as a reader as well as the writer.

 

Especially take a look at the last line...the U.N. is a very imperfect organization with a lot of problems...but they've done more good since their founding than they've done harm. Many times if we listened to them (especially right now as they cry for help in Darfur, this would be a far better place. Why should we disband the UN as you encourage without any supporting information?

ugh...I have to get up in like an hour and a half to get ready for school, so I'll come back this afternoon to debate this....just remember, I never said teh repups were moral, either. In fact, I shouldn't have to point to their messes because they're all over the news. It's just funny to me that people are so shocked when its the repubs, but when its the dems, they act like it happens every day.....maybe because it does????

One thing I think everyone can agree on: BOTH parties have their bad actors. BOTH parties have at times been reluctant to deal with them.

 

Thanks for posting the list, Nick. It's always good to see both sides of every issue. :great:

 

My own personal opinion: I think both parties have massive flaws, and need to fix them, and learn to speak out against malfeasance in office regardless of whether the problem is on the other side of the political aisle or their own. I'm against corruption, period.

Hey everybody :2hands:

Interesting to see how the discussion becomes "passionate". IMO you forget both an obviousness : politicians are only men, and sometimes weak men. As in every community you find the same percentage of crooks and venals.

For instance, in France, both sides (left and right) used their power to fill their pockets, the President Mitterand had an open "love affair", same things as "Watergate" happened several times on left and right sides, but the people appreciated the way the government leaded the nation and didnt care the private morality of those who governed. Even in the States, on one side Nixon with his records was obliged to resign, on the other side his decisions with China were a plus for US.

 

US is a very big nation, but even so big as you are, you cannt rule the world alone ! UN has only one advantage : its exists ! You should support it, strengthen it . See what happened with the SDN : its weakness couldnt prevent WW2. Think of it :huh:

Hey Nick, I agree, that when the opposition screwes up, the Dems, start popping bolts like it's the first time, and "oh how scandalous it is". Both parties are pathetic no doubt about it.

 

I just don't want to wake up by the light of a 100kilo ton flash. :nuke: The terrorists already have their enemy, if we back off now, they won't.

 

I do think that your fishing expedition has landed the catch that you were looking for. B)

P.S. You forgot William Jefferson. Dem. Louisiana, between$ 90,000, and $100,000 in COLD CASH in his freeezer, under investigation yet, but still welcomed among his compatriots.........hummm?

I know....actually, someone posted this list on an AOL message board so I copied it and pasted it.....I just hope people are reading every name on the list....btw, I'm looking for a republican list, but I can't seem to find one. Maybe someone here can steer me in the right direction

I agree that republicans are hideous too, and those descriptions show it for the most part...but what we need is a list of convictions....half of those are just things that happened in their lives, not crimes. But I admit that the listed crimes were pretty gross (raping a 5 year old :thumbdown::thumbdown: ) Thanks Joe :)

Politicians are gross. Yuck. I just skimmed both lists and I feel like I need a shower.

 

Maybe we need to fire the politicians and lawyers and elect doctors, engineers, scientists, farmers, etc.

 

They aren't perfect but they bring knowledge to the table. Politicians only bring baggage.

Like most folks, this scientist and engineer (me) has on occasion daydreamed that I was President. I do a lot less of that post-Carter. I'm not saying we're alike (for one thing, I would never lose sleep over "lust in my heart" :devil::P ), but in several important ways, Carter was and is what I aspire to be. And look what happened. :(

 

On second thought, we'd be better off with Carter as President today. Gosh, who would have thought, when we first elected Shrub, that he'd actually have to do something? Joke's on us! :huh::o :wacko: :angry:

 

On a lighter note: This is my first visit to Nick's blog (yeah, I'm slow), and I note the huge fonts in most of his posts. I guess he had to shrink down a bit this time just to fit that long list in a reasonable space :P I previously considered that Nick liked to shout in forums. Now I think he's enthusiastic. :P

Hey,

I dont want to give my country (Switzerland) as an example, but the facts are the facts. We have in our 2 parliaments about 300 senators and deputies (for a population of 7 millions inhabitants), elected all 4 years. They are all part-time politicians (max 50 % of their time) , have a professional situation (lawyers, engineers, teachers, workmen, peasants.. aso) have just their travel and administrative costs paid. Its an Honour to be elected and not a profit. In the last 10 years, if 2 % of them made an personal and financial advantage from their election, it would be a max. And these 2 % ended in jail.

Why what is possible in Switzerland couldnt exist in the States ?

Farewell, citizen of the strongest Country of the world.

Old Bob
