    They do it because they get away with it. There was a lot of corruption here in Pennsylvania. The FBI set up shop in Wilkes barre and said they're not going home any time soon.

    Probably because there is a lot of power and money to be made in politics so it attract corrupt people.

    Those of us that aren't particularly interested in obtaining power would rather do something worthwhile with our lives I assume.

    Mainly because they write the laws that allow them to get away with it and we the people give them the OK by re electing them. They have NO reason to stop and the people are to stupid to do anything about it as they believe that the politicians are above them. Easy to stop if you are willing to do what needs to be done!

    Why are politicians corrupt? Simple... Its because we allow them to be corrupt. If we are truly united and the true masters of the govt., we should be able to drag the corrupt bastards out of office and into the streets. Wouldn't that be awesome.

    I would say 50% of it is because the corruption is hidden and the other 50% is because we let them.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    It's because most politicians are lawyers. They went to college to learn law and are trained to lie and distort the truth to defend/prosecute their case at any cost. We actually have no one to blame but ourselves. We fall for the same song and dance time after time because they are really good public speakers. But of course they have a degree and are trained to lie in public in a court of law. It's not the truth but what you can "prove".

    So STOP voting for lawyers...... If we took all the "F"in lawyers out of office our country wouldn't be in this position. IMHO..

    I think it comes down to one thing. We allow it. We slap them on the wrist and we keep re-electing them. Chipper, your right. We get exactly what we deserve when we elect lawyers. Star sending them to jail.....And I don't mean a country club fed prison filled with White Collar scam artists . A real prison with real criminals. Make it real.
