Keeping score on corruption

By From page A11 | April 30, 2014

Has anyone been keeping a score card on who’s next to be caught in corruption, and if it’s happening at the state level can you imagine what must be happening at federal level? By the way, that is four so far who have been caught up and one for giving his brother money from funds he stole from his campaign funds.

Now if this is taking place at the state level, how many politicians representing the citizens of the U.S. are doing things behind our backs in Washington, D.C.? Somehow these people have forgotten they are working for us, but for some reason they feel they have the right to do whatever they want without realizing they have to answer to the people.

It’s just the simple truth of it, folks: Some people have been in there too long and need to be replaced by people who will do the job. People who have America’s interests first (not their own), people who are Americans first, and above all, people who cannot be corrupted.

Doing background checks on these people won’t hurt, either, to see who they are holding hands with before they run for sensitive positions.

    We should abolish the federal and state governments so we can develop all the land currently off limits.

    Develop all the land into what? FF would only blanket its earth with more low cost apartments.
