    I don't believe that either party is overtly evil.

    They may be mistaken about a bunch of stuff. But that's not evil.

    What a dumb question!
    You probably mean, is the Democratic Party more corrupt than the Republican Party, and it's still a dumb question.
    Unless you're struggling with the terms, 'liberal' and 'conservative', in which case the question becomes a welcome source of giggles and nods for anyone literate enough to read your nym. (Hint- that probably excludes more of your supporters than your opponents.)

    Whoa!
    I admire the self-aggrandizement needed to make judgements on both good vs. evil and constitutionality. You might have a statue of yourself in your front yard.
    If I lived in your world, I wouldn't want to grow up either.

    Re: Are Democrats more corrupt than Republicans?

    I don't think either party is more corrupt than the other. But I'm pleased to say that residing in a state that has a republican legislature and a republican governor that they're still able to root out the corruption in their midst....thanks to a democrat.



    "...After he was arrested and charged with 10 felonies alleging he had misused his office, former Republican Attorney General Mark Shurtleff complained loud and long that the case against him was a politically motivated hit, ordered by Democratic Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill.

    Gill denied party played into the charges, noting they were made in conjunction with Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings, a Republican, and based on findings not just from investigators with the FBI and Utah Department of Public Safety, but also from the Republican lieutenant governor’s office and a GOP-led House committee...."

    The two parties seem to keep each other in check.

    If anyone was paying any attention during the Halliburton administration, the answer to this question should be obvious.

    Um, left leaning people make up the vast majority of the US scientific community.

    Obama said there's not even a smidgen of corruption at the IRS, so at least we can cross that off the list.

    Re: Are Democrats more corrupt than Republicans?

    I would have, prior to the Clinton administration and the Obama administration's unending corruption called it a tie.

    Clinton co-opted the GSEs into his " fair lending " iniative and appointed Criminals to run them into the ground.

    The GSEs under Democrat leadership falsified signatures in the 90s, and were the subject of two SEC investigations under Bush.

    After Fannie Mae was busted in 2004 for reporting Billions in profits never made they promised the SEC that they would, like every other publicly traded Company start reporting their quarterly statements to the SEC.

    Of-course, they never did.

    Obama ? Lies and more lies to cover up a unprecedented level of corruption

    Fast and Furious, Stimulus feeding corrupt Green energy Companies and Public Sector Union's, Benghazzi, IRS targeting based on Political affiliation, his disatrous Foreign policy that defies reason.

    The list is never ending.

    THE QUESTION IS NOT IF BOTH SIDES COMMIT THESE CORRUPT ACTS, BUT WHO DOES IT MORE? ARE DEMS MORE CORRUPT?


    Is this a stupid poll? I say yes.

    How do you come by that conclusion? I've known a few who were, but they actually paid little to no attention to politics.
