    I love the blatant hypocrisy. I hate both Dems and Republicans, but people were all over the Cheney/Haliburton links, but no one is talking about this. That's pure crap.

    OMG.

    First Cheney & Halliburton (not to mention Dubya and the oil) now this crazy piece of work and her husband's companies.

    Maybe it really is true: they're ALL corrupt, greedy, etc.

    I need a drink.

    How do we get people who are not just out for themselves elected to office?

    My only thought is to find people that are actually fiscally conservative. Making government smaller would more or less have to lower their greedy power.

    Too bad the Republicans aren't that anymore. I used to at least like the more than Dems when they were.

    • Find people who have a "worldview" (a way of viewing all of life) that is not focused on "self" or inherently selfish.
    • Appoint people who are not looking to put themselves in a position of power
    • And, maybe, people who are idealists and really think that there is a right way of doing government

    Good things so far, but how do we get the money out.

    Is there a Reagan or Teddy Roosevelt out there who is willing to cut the goverment?

    Is there an FDR, Lincoln or Washington out there who is willing to do what is right no matter how unpopular it might be?

    I'm asking this because I see the answer but don't know how to get there.

    I'd say Ron Paul will fit the government slashing part.

    TERM LIMITS!!!!!!!!!

    We limit the White house resident to two 4 year terms, Virginia limits it's governors to ONE four year term. We should do the same with Senators & Congressmen. That way you get rid of all the dead wood politicians who are just enriching themselves & looking to remain on the public dole for the rest of their lives.

    I would also cut their pay, BOTH houses make more than six figures.....IF they must be paid, then I think they should be paid THE MINIMUM WAGE & NOTHING MORE!

    The current salary (2006) for rank-and-file members of the House and Senate is $165,200 per year.

    During the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin considered proposing that elected government officials not be paid for their service.
    Other Founding Fathers, however, decided otherwise.
    To bad, Franklin had the right idea.........The Founders had the right idea as to public service. Their idea was, you got elected, you served (only while Congress was in session) & you went home..BACK TO YOUR ORIGINAL JOB!
    From 1789 to 1815, members of Congress received only a per diem (daily payment) of $6.00 while in session. Members began receiving an annual salary in 1815, when they were paid $1,500 per year.
    Congress: Leadership Members' Salary (110th Congress)
    Leaders of the House and Senate are paid a higher salary than rank-and-file members.

    Senate Leadership
    Majority Leader - $183,500
    Minority Leader - $183,500
    House Leadership
    Speaker of the House - $212,100
    Majority Leader - $183,500
    Minority Leader - $183,500

    A cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) increase takes effect annually unless Congress votes to not accept it.
    They also receive retirement benefits of 80% of salary.
