33. What I find so amazingly, obviously ignorant (actually, I can't even describe it)

by the people who vote for Newt, is the fact that he was banned from ever holding public office again, when he was fired from Congress. They actually passed a bill (the ethics committee), banning Newt from holding any elected office.
When the repugs were trying to keep the mobster, Tom Delay, in office, they did away with this bill. This allowed newt to run for POTUS. Hell, he couldn't even run for dog-catcher before that.
Knowing how corrupt most of "our" politicians are, Newt must have been caught for some heavy shit. This is the true state of our (orgainized crime) government. Pushing for a monster to run as POTUS.
We, the people, have no choice about who TPTB allow to be "our" leaders. If we did, we would choose moral, "people before profits" citizens. Instead we are always presented with the "lesser of two evils", which we are to believe that we actually decide upon.
We do "on-line banking," yet are unable to have "hack-proof" electronic voting? How long will Americans allow themselves to be puppets?
Really, we ALL know it is a lie, yet we participate, following "their" rules. We are cowardly idiots. I apologize for the negativity. I just get tired of the "illusion" that we all ignore.
