    I agree with your second point but I don't understand your point about Republicans stopping political competition.

    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    This is the same jerk who threatened to throw a journalist/reporter over a railing and break him in half when he was asked about his federal investigation into fund raising for his campaign.

    classy, huh?

    and want's to remain a representative, unreal.

    May be the first felon, but he's one of a Congress-full of criminals.

    On the rare occasion when one is ever arrested, it is usually some kind of "sting operation" where the FBI seduces them.

    Kinda like pulling weeds, they can never get all of them. It's rather like shooting fish in a barrel.
