    Didn't byrd vote against the civil rights act, AND state while serving in office that the KLAN was needed?

    He did vote against the CRA, which he publically apologized for later. And I don't believe he made that statement while in office. Now can you give me proof Strom ever apologized for his racist past like Byrd did?

    I think that knowing how everything works and having a close relationship with your colleagues is good, and I think it helps for them to worry about how their legislation will effect things in the long term, not just the few years they're in.

    We would have been far better off without professional politicians pushing agenda's that undermine commerce and Liberty.
    Again, in states with term limits, it's even worse. California would be a bit better off if our legislators had more time to figure out what they were doing and take the long term view of things instead of trying to hop from office to office.

    In fact, before Senators were elected, I do believe the idea was to have our representatives come from their areas, serve a short stint and then return home. The representatives shouldn't be too far detached from recent events in their towns and cities. Today's politician too often becomes a DC animal... and worse...
    It happens with term limits too. The citizen legislator is, with our current system, an unrealistic idea.

    Senators that only know politics... and have never experienced the private sector, or experienced little of it, like Byrd, Biden, Schumer, Frank and Obama have done greater damage than a revolving door of local yokels coming and going could ever dream of doing... because they would do less and be more cautious about their actions.
    Like Palin, McCain, McConnell, or Lott? If the problem is on both sides, don't only list one. You have no idea whether people would be less cautious about their actions or not.

    It should almost be mandatory for a representative to have years of experience in the private sector... it can never be, but it would be wise... as noted by...
    They may know more about business issues, but that doesn't mean they know much about the military or education or several other important areas.

    You are right he was a state delegate. I still think the fact that he apologized so strongly counts for something. What's your view on Lott? Dood is as racist at Strom as I see it.

    Strom didn't recant. Byrd did. Several times. Don't let the facts get in your way though. Or those of our Nazi friends or Taipeian relatives.

    I love how Plantation Negroes like yourself likes to make false links between Nazis and Republicans.

    And BTW, you need a geography lesson. I don't live in Taipei...
