What makes you so sure that only the male politicians are corrupted? Or is that your bias opinion that there are only male politicians.


Ok then I'll rephrase that just for you.

Happy?

If I was an dispassionate idiot, then I could say I would be happy with your mundane reply due to a lack of imagination. But honestly, since I don't sense an ounce of originality or passion from your comment, the answer is no.

You denied the possibility of an uncorrupted politician in the first place, therefore you stopped being entertaining when you lack flexibility in your thinking.

And I was right, for you didn't even want to entertain yourself on the possibility of an uncorrupted politician. When you automatically assume all politicians are corrupted.

And I'm always pleased to know that I was right, when I'm more than happy to know that I was wrong.

Oh did I say that I don't want to entertain myself and others except for you? Don't put words in my mouth. Your desire to be entertained begun since you've quoted my post. Soooorrrrryyy, I don't aim to please everyone. I'm happy to know that you're pleased with yourself. A lion with a small dick does compensate for a big roar.

Since this is a topic of how oneself identify a corrupt or a foolish politician for that matter.

One way is to be informed.
Understand both sides of any issues.
Look at promises or declarations made during campaign seasons and whether such promises have been kept, broken or forestalled.
Identify the major players involved in the political scene.
Look at the sponsors and ties backing the politician.
Identify his closest aides or advisers and their stance on key issues.
Be wary of short clips or talking points, instead seek out the full clip so as to gain a better understanding.

Last but not least do not be drawn into an emotional response. Be most wary of McCarhtyism or those preaching such tactics.

PS: Be most careful when dealing with News Corp.

Great points this is the exact way to stay on top. I would also like to add to look at people's voting records because their voting records can contradict what they say. A lot of people talk about invasion of American rights but was a main supporter of the Patriot Act. It really is all about holding these politicians to what they stand for a lot just talk to get in office. Once they get into office (like Bush who said we would not do any nation building but started two wars and is nation building in Iraq) they flip to their radical agenda. So always observe their stances on other issues and see if they talking bull or not.

Yes the news media is also and absolute joke they will only put the candidates on air that they want the people to support. Such the case of the last presidency the only top candidates was Mccain, Obama, Hillary, and Mitt (for a little while). Every other candidate got thrown under the bus and of course whoever gets the most air time gets the most exposure, thus more votes. Ron Paul was in the race raising millions without any corporations funding him and the media blacked him out as if he was not in the race at all. Internet is starting to become the best source of info along with reading more books.

People that make a living, as a politician all there life are corrupt no if and or but about it. You need money to run and pay back is expected at some time. Down here in Atlanta we have all this bicycle lanes painted in on the asphalt and very seldom used. But a lobbing group and money made that change. It like that exercise equipment that some buys and used as anything but it was designed to do. If the talking on the house or senate floor they can lie all they want and can not be held liable for there statement sad thing it true.

That true but I would guess maybe ten percent in Washington are honest, and sometime wish the British would re-enact the war of 1812, DC needs a good cleaning out now and then. New york the British failed and the UN going up in flames that would give me a hart attack of pure joy if the moved it to, a third world country Haiti, Congo, they feel more at home as well.

I determine whether or not a politician is corrupt based on his level in politics. It may sound cynical but I think the higher a politician climbs the less of him there is left. All politicians are corrupt, some not so much as others but none can reach the top without being at least slightly tainted by the process of getting there.

So comparing penis size with how loud they rower, compares to your superstition that politician must be corrupt based on what evidence? (for ether?)

An baseless analogy teach nothing because it is nothing.
