    Are Democrats more corrupt than Republicans?

    Voter fraud, bribes, witness tampering, pleading the 5th, extortion, blackmail, targeting of individuals over political beliefs, infidelity...we all know the crimes.

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

    Not sure. To accurately answer one would have to put forth a great deal of effort to research corruption on both the national, state and local levels. Simply pointing to politicians with name recognition alone won't cut it.

    Let's call it a tie.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    I suppose you could go add up all the scandals from the past few decades and see which party has more, but my impression isn't that one party is more moral than the other. If I had to guess I'd say it's probably about even.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    You can somehow do the research or give your opinion/impression. This is about public opinion.

    I think it's a tie to be honest. Both serve corporate interests only, not those of the general populace. Both happen to have endorsed some of the most untrustworthy and slimy characters you're likely to find. Both are different sides of the same corrupted coin the country keeps flipping each election, expecting something different.

    Since both parties will do whatever it takes to win elections, trying to figure out which party is more corrupt is like trying to figure out who is the worst murderer, the one who killed a 100 people or the one who only killed 99. Flipping a coin is probably the best way to determine your answer.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    This. Without that, any answer is just a guess.

    Public opinion is different than facts. Some people prefer facts.

    I dont think so. One side see's the other as evil. One side is held to a higher standard. We may disagree on the endgame, but the ways these different strategies manifest will likely (and are) different.
