So many of our "leaders" have a lot of baggage, eh? :)
...leaders? pfft, carpetbaggers. Vermin. Traitors. Buzzard bait.
I don't think enough of those "leaders" to expend the effort to spit in their face.
Mmmmm, perhaps I should have some more caffiene. ;) Mornin' Blue.

At the local level public service is usually a selfless act to help the community. Up at the national level it's just a cash and power grab, Looks like they are stomping all over Commandments 1,2,8,9,and 10
but what do I know
Vaya con Dios Amigo's :)
Agreed. Some folks truly want to "serve", especially at the local level. I'm sure that there are some at the federal level, also, but they are few and far between.
I think that the potential for corruption increases as the level of government increases. I also think that the ability to resist corruption decreases as individual power increases. The more powerful one becomes, the more opportunities for corruption...
Sadly, I believe that its part of the human condition.
