Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

I think that most members of Congress, regardless of what side of the aisle they're on, went there wide-eyed and innocent and ready to be good stewards of the power and money intrusted to them by their constituents. (Not all, of course. Even I am not that naive) It seems the second they walk through the door their brains are removed and replaced with two thoughts: "I need to expand my power and influence," and "I need to be reelected." This is another reason I am in favor of term limits. If they know they can't stay there for life, maybe they'll actually do something for the betterment of the country instead of the furtherence of their own political career.

I partially agree. Regulate broadcast, and I have no problem. Regulate cable, and this conservative with libertarian tendencies will be very PO'd. The problem with our system is that when the party you agree with most gets into power (the Republicans) instead of governing on what they promised, they govern on keeping power.

Therefore you have a supposed conservative President introducing a big new prescription program that nobody likes. (Conservatives know it won't work and Liberals say it is not enough.)

And this K Street/Abramoff corruption stuff is getting bad.

Though I find it hilarious/frustrating when I hear Nancy Pelosi talk about "The Culture of Corruption," when both she and Harry Reid have also dealt with the man and received funds from him as well.
