Forum Post: Professional Politicians....whores?

Professional Politicians are whores. Plain and simple. They chase money their entire careers. They do anything they are paid to do. A Professional Politician cannot have morals. Morals would negate thier ability to justify the things they do to us in exchange for money. Why do they need so much money you may ask. It takes money to stay in power. Just as drugs lead some folks to prostitute themselves, power leads Professional Politicians to whore themselves out. Personally, I have more respect for prostitutes. Prostitutes ae honest about what they sell. Obama and Romney are both total whores. They even service some of the same big money special intrests. Neither of them is better for us than the other. Vote for whomever you wish, get fucked over by whomever you wish. But do it with your eyes open.

My Grand father told me,"Never pay a priest,politician or prostitute up front. Make sure they do what you want then pay." I will not vote Rep or Dem this November.

Neither will I except at the local level. It feels much better to not have to settle for the lesser of 2 evils, regardless of who actually wins.

Great replies! Please do what you can to get this artficial Rep/Dem divison squashed and get $ out of politics. This country is full of smart people who will not enter politics due to the total prostitution of government. We need to recruit these folks and vote them in. Rep/Dem leadership are the Same bastards screwing us every way they can. Stop the us against them BS. They pick the issues that divide us and ignore what unites us!

Are they whores? I wouldn't be in such a hurry to dish out compliments.

Vote out everyone who has been there in congress. Why do we have representatives and senators who've been there for 40 years. They have all contributed to what we have now. Vote them ALL out regardless of party and vote in people in your districts and states that represent your views. If they don't, make them support your views with petitions, letters, emails, etc. It's not difficult to speak with local representatives running for congress. They are more approachable on local levels and events especially when running for election. These are the important races. Start with 1 or 2 issues that all Americans agree on like reinstating Glass-Steagle, corporate loopholes. Move on to the other issues after they get in congress. By starting with issues that both reps & dems agree on, there is more chance of getting these representatives and senators in there. This also raises fear in the other congressman to support these issues.

the government has a budget of 3.7 trillion/year

[-] 2 points by gsw (2687) 1 year ago

On the August 10, 2011, broadcast of The Dylan Ratigan Show, in a round table discussion of the market meltdown following the Budget Control Act of 2011, Ratigan went on a two-minute-long rant against what he perceived to be the state of politics in the United States government, saying: "We've got a real problem! This is a mathematical fact! Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren't doing it, Republicans aren't doing it. An entire integrated system, financial system, trading system, taxing system, that was created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now. And we're sitting here arguing about whether we should do the $4 trillion plan that kicks the can down the road for the president for 2017, or burn the place to the ground, both of which are reckless, irresponsible, and stupid."[11] The video of his impassioned speech went viral[12] and was praised by other media sources. TV Newser wrote that it was "a powerful, emotional editorial on the economy and Washington".[13] On a followup post on his website the day after he wrote that he had received a lot of positive mail from viewers, writing "I’m mad as hell. And according to the piles and piles of responses I got after my rant, so are you."[14]

Comments on Amendment Drafts Please leave your comments for debate on the following amendment drafts.

From our former Washington Lobbyist, Jimmy Williams, here is a DRAFT of our Constitutional Amendment for public debate this fall:

“No person, corporation or business entity of any type, domestic or foreign, shall be allowed to contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any candidate for Federal office or to contribute money on behalf of or opposed to any type of campaign for Federal office. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, campaign contributions to candidates for Federal office shall not constitute speech of any kind as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution or any amendment to the U. S. Constitution. Congress shall set forth a federal holiday for the purposes of voting for candidates for Federal office.”

It’s Time to Get Money Out of Politics It’s time to get things done and finally get money out of politics. Our Washington insider Jimmy Williams is now preparing a Constitutional amendment to get big money from special interests out of our political system. We all know that they buy access and influence through campaign contributions, and benefit from the big payoffs (examples: Wall Street, health care, banking) and, of course, provide a lucrative revolving door to soften the blow when elected officials leave office.

Steps are already being taken by some big names. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz urged fellow CEO’s and campaign donors this week to boycott campaign contributions until the parties actually do something constructive to fight long term fiscal concerns and the jobs crisis. Former PA Gov. Ed Rendell has said he will support it as well:

There are so many legislators who have said to me, gosh, if I could vote in secret, I could vote for your proposal Governor because I know it’s the right thing to do. But I can’t do it. The other side will raise money on it and kill me. And that’s what’s so important — it is so important to get the influence of money out of politics. Because if you get the influence of money out of politics, we will get people who will actually vote their conscience.  And I think that’s extraordinarily important. You’re right to say it’s not the lobbyists… but it is the money that perverts the entire process…. I would be interested in Jimmy’s drafting the amendment.

Today we face a crushing burden of foreclosures, dropping incomes, and a financial elite that has bought our government.  The elite consensus is powerful enough to prevent change, no matter who is elected.  The situation seems, at least in electoral terms, hopeless.  Yet, America has been here before, and has shown remarkable resilience in the darkest of times.

So just how do we get the debate we deserve?  How do we root out the corruption, greed, and fraud in our system?  Clearly, the root of much evil in our system of government comes from the financing of political campaigns by powerful interests.  And the Supreme Court has said that money is speech, and thus, protected by the Constitution.  So we must pass a Constitutional amendment to speak back to the Supreme Court, and assert the primacy of government by the people.

in the middle ages, the second or third noble son joined the clergy

so royalty controlled the land and the church

[-] 1 points by gsw (2687) 1 year ago

The first son inherited everything, Second had to go to church, or go on crusades.

An old tradition, hopefully abandoned in modern society, in which the first born son was awarded the family bussiness, the second son was expected to dedicate his life to the Church, a third son was destined for military service and subsequent male children were expected to emmigrate to new and unexplored worlds.

thanks

I believe aristocrats still serve their piers and families

[-] 1 points by gsw (2687) 1 year ago

yea, they don't have to go to war, so they do other things, like make sure others will go to war for them, and work to keep their inheritance, by buying politicians
