Congresswoman asks for bribe on voicemail

 

Almost no one still thinks that the government is pure and clean these days, and we almost accept some level of corruption. However this congresswoman takes it to a brazen new level of openess.

The problem is money in politics. You can't be in congress without spending most of your time fundraising. If they didn't have to fundraise they could spend most of their time serving the people, and not the rich and their corporations which is who they are beholden to now.

She is not asking for a contribution to the committee that she is a member of she is asking for a "contribution" to herself directly. She even goes as far as to point out that she has served for 20 yrs and she feels that this contributor should give her money for it. By all legal sense there is nothing wrong with a donation to help run a committee, the line becomes blurred once she has asked for money for herself. She even mentions that she is on the board that this donator is in direct correlation with and I assume needs their vote on something. The system is crooked and there is nothing we as the people can do about it but go out and not vote. Yes not vote if everyone just didn't vote it would send a message. Like the late great Monty Brewster once said, Just Vote None!

The only way to decrease this type of 'bribery' is to make government smaller and throw out the influence peddlers.

The whole government is set up this way. That's why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.'The more money you have the more influence you'll have. The more influence you have the more money you'll have.'This is not just lobbying but also the way the establishment media brainwashes voters to vote for establishment candidates pushing the same establishment agenda. Ron Paul was our one big hope and the media/GOP establishment fucked that up for us.

Scotland. And yeah, no shit, I never said it was the only country fucking up. Most countries are fucking up in some way. I'm just saying there's a reason your political system is watched for general entertainment by half the world. Lighten up.

And what are you doing to change our system beside calling other people out on it. Does it need to be changed? Sure i can agree to that. Is what happening right now, in that video, illegal in the united states, as defined the by the law (which yes, i can agree with shitty), aka a bribe?...no.

And people like you are why they get away with it..It may not be illegal, but its immoral and wrong in every way. Its only "legal" because they are the ones writing the laws.
