Why is this no big surprise?

Post  Skeptical on Fri May 13, 2016 5:29 pm



Anybody paying attention to politicians and politics for at least 20 years and more specifically since 2008 will be painfully aware the first part below is truly accurate!

'Screw the next generation' and 'Harry Reid's a pompous a**': Democratic congressman writes Anonymous tell-all book slamming 'nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep' as he admits he never reads bills he votes on

'My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. It takes precedence over everything,' an anonymous member of Congress writes in a new book
'Voters are incredibly ignorant and know little about our form of government and how it works,' he writes
'It's far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification'
The author is a Democrat in Congress who laid out his complaints to a long-time friend and former Capitol Hill staffer who edited them into a book
'The Confessions of Congressman X' will be released May 24 by a small Minnesota-based 'vanity press' publisher

The part about being re-elected is very telling. We should craft a scenerio where it is not possible for an incumbent or even a challenger to spend years running for office. The House is particularly bad, since it's a two year term. Re-election campaign starts right after swearing in, or even sooner.
