90. We are deluded to believe government will investigate itself
Edited on Thu Oct-21-10 10:21 AM by felix_numinous
based on facts. History has shown that it takes massive continuous public pressure to force them to do so. Enough public pressure can put these groups on the run, once this happens it makes it much easier for politicians to get on the bandwagon and take action. It does not happen the other way around, IMHO.

It is important to pressure all honest Democrats, including President Obama and his administration to work with us to confront this corruption. I think that it is within their best interest to separate themselves from it, not only for legal reasons, but to give them a platform for the 2012 election.
