    Heres a fact, corruption and being reported/convicted of corruption are two different things. This is a poll, meaning I am asking for opinion. See how this works?

    And the answer is that without facts, it is just guesses, which is worthless.

    Which is why you entered the polls forum. Makes sense.

    I guess this means goodbye.

    Also simply untrue. Opinion, prior experience, empirical data all are anything but worthless.

    Where on the forum are you posting your research papers?

    Re: Are Democrats more corrupt than Republicans?

    I love reading crime statistics.

    A few years back I read a 190 page big report on mafia involvement in Italian politics. From voter fraud, diverting public money, black mailing officials, rackerteering, bribery and even murder of non-cooperative Italian politicians.

    The result, of all the governments that Italy had ever had, from conservative to very liberal to liberterian and whatever, more that 50 governments since 1945. All of them had gotten their hands dirty together with the Italian mob.

    There was only one Italian government that didnt. and that was the social democratic government that ran on cracking down hard on the mob in the 1990s. (Who are seen as heros in Italy since they managed to give the biggest blow to the mob in the 20th century and many public officials were murderd doing that work)

    Which doesnt suggest that the center left is mob free in Italy, since previous center left governments in Italy had also goten their hands dirty.

    Crime simply doesnt know ideology, crime itself is the embodiement of oppertunism. People almoust never commit crimes because of their beliefs, but because they think they can get away with it.

    Which is clearly shown by a different statistic I read on crime in politics. Which showed that politicaly releated crimes like corruption are most likely to occure in party strongholds.

    A republican official is more likely to commit a crime in Texas and a democratic official is more likely to commit a crime in California.

    Because they think that they can get away with it.

    I would say both are equally dirty.

    On an individual basis, either side could have more corrupt individuals at a given time.

    Ideologically, Leftism is morally, intellectually and humanly corrupt, deceitful and evil. It is the greatest danger to the advancement and longterm survival of the species.

    Corrected for accuracy.

    There will always be corruption on both sides. But it's not really the parties that are corrupt. It the system that allows corruption. It's rigged.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    What a crock.
