109. Close enough though.
There are minor differences but overall the same money grubbing attitudes apply.
Politicians live in a world with virtually no natural predators. They can grow fat and lazy because they have minimal threat.
Much like Blacks and the Democratic party, non right leaning people have no where else to go.
Really we do.
We can have a moral stand.
People once maintained those.
Sure I read the bluster and threat about if we don't get this or that we will not vote for him or her. In the end the vote becomes justified because we can't allow the other guy to win.
If you don't want to eat the shit sandwich don't take the first bite.
Every single time one compromises their integrity it makes the next time easier. We lose our virtue and end with nothing.
Where does it end?
It ends with the first person saying NO! And continually repeating it until others take up the chant.
