Awash in a Sea of Corruption

Tuesday, November 29, 2005

Rep. Randy Cunningham
Is it me or is our government run by a bunch of crooks? Yahoo! News carried an article about Rep. Cunningham taking bribes from defense contractors.
[Calif. Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham's] plea comes amid a series of GOP scandals: Rep.     Tom DeLay of Texas had to step down as majority leader after he was indicted in a campaign finance case; a stock sale by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is being looked at by regulators; and Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff was indicted in the CIA leak case.
Our government seems to be awash in a sea of corruption. It's only a matter of time before it collapses. I certainly hope those identified in his 33 page guilty plea are charged, too. How can Americans ever hope to straighten out our wayward country if the persons we've elected and entrusted with the task of looking out for our best interests are so easily purchased. It is my opinion that this type of activity is more common than we think. This event serves as more evidence that special interest groups (including lobbyists) should be banned from the political process.
