Who's the biggest enemy terrorists or politicians?
The arrest of the Illinois Governor raises a good question in my opinion. Who's REALLY the bigger threat to this country. Is it some unemployed teenage boy roaming around the middle east shouting allah akbar or is it certain politicians in this country?The amount of politicians arrested in this country in just the last few years is staggering. The charges have ranged from bribery to threatening to murder an undercover FBI agent. Four of five county commisioners in Birmingham, Al who served between 1998 and 2002 are now in a federal prison. Former and current Mayors in Atlanta,Detroit,Birmingham and Jackson, Ms. either went to prison or their currently under indictment. We had a State House Speaker in North Carolina sent to prison for bribing a fellow State Rep in a bathroom at an IHOP. Over a dozen politicians have been arrested in Tennessee on bribery. Over a hundred pols in New Jersey and Pennsylvania have gone down as well in recent years. Prominent trial lawyer Dickie Scruggs and a few former politicians in Mississippi went down for bribing a judge earlier this year. We have had numerous Congressmen and a US Senator go down on corruption charges. Alabama has seen everyone from a former Governor and Secretary of State to low level State Reps go down on corruption charges. The list just seems endless. When you add on the mess Congress helped create with the economy and mortage crisis. It just makes you wonder. Who is REALLY the biggest threat facing this great country?
