Ideascale - Worth The Time? in Line 6 Lounge Posted February 17, 2014 To be fair many a politician goes into politics to help. The honest ones don't get very far except if you are Ron Paul. Those willing to take "incentives" from Lobbyists get ahead fast. USA inc Earth Inc You gotta laugh LOLOL Wish I could agree with you. Honesty has little to do with it. Its all about the love of power. Truth is...and i'm paraphrasing someone here, just can't remember whom... is one of few endeavors in which it is possible to achieve wealth and power with absolutely no merit whatsoever. If they wanted to help, they'd join the peace corps, or the fire department, or they'd go be a physician in some third world cesspool. They want money and dominion over the lives of others, while producing nothing tangible...other than bills for room service and helicopter fuel (that I pay for).
