50. Thanks for NOT slipslidingaway on this post.
The Congressman has nailed it and isn't afraid to let the world know.

A few other reasons the Dems are complicit:

They're human beings just like the Repugs. So, they love the power. They love the perks. They love the adulation they receive because of their station in life (It's like being a TV or movie star--Oh! Oh! Look, there's Senator So and So!! Ooh! Aaah!!) They screw up sometimes and being in the sightline of the ALL-SEEING EYE they get videoed or record-eeoed. Then they get compromise-eeoed and told how to vote-eeoe.

The power elite have been playing this game for CENTURIES. And playing it very successfully. Now they have digital and electronic devices that allow them to have access to about any place on the planet. They know that knowledge is power, but the knowledge they have is about the things our Senators and Congressmen don't WANT them or us to know about. Well, too bad!! They've got it and they're going to use it if our reps don't do as they're told.

This makes me wonder about Dennis Kucinich, who I admire greatly. Has he been so honest and above reproach that he is untouchable? Or does he just not care what they might have on him?

Excuse my cynicism. It's just that I can't understand how else otherwise good Democrats and honest (though misguided) Republicans would let this happen to our republic.
