Would you hire these people ? are elections really honest or rigged
Despite lower approval numbers than terrorists, molesters of children, and that abnoxious drunk uncle that always ends up starting problems at the family reunion picnics, 2012 will see record numbers of scum bag politicians slide back in highly over-paid ~ no-show needed ~ so called vital jobs.
It's like the ultimate union where you can basically get caught with your hands in the cookie jar and your junk in that other woman's truck, and yet face little to no consequences, if anything you can do like Jessie Jackson JR and simply no come to work and claim medical and psychological problems in addition to substance abuse simply prevent you from doing anything, yet you still can get paid, very well paid if you count all the back room dealings and cradle to grave life-long benefits from entering the second oldest profession in the world, being a politician.
According to the below article:
The re-election percentage for House incumbents in the modern era — 1964 to 2010 — has rarely dipped below 80 percent, even in "wave" election years when the president saw members of his party sent packing, such as Bill Clinton in 1994 (52 House seats lost), George W. Bush in 2006 (30 seats lost) and Barack Obama in 2010 (63 seats lost).
Senate re-election hasn't always been as sure a thing. In 1980, when Republican Ronald Reagan ousted Democratic President Jimmy Carter from the White House, nine Senate incumbents fell and the re-election percentage for incumbents fell to 55 percent. Two years later, however, it was back up to 93 percent.
Storey said people decide where to live for a variety of reasons, but the conventional view still stands — rural America is predominantly Republican and urban America is strongly Democratic. The suburbs provide some intersection of the two, and that line moves in and out depending on the election. Other factors come into play, too. The 1965 Voting Rights Act limits what nine states can do in drawing up new districts, to ensure that minorities are represented in Congress.
Just being in office helps a candidate a lot. Incumbents typically have a considerable advantage in raising money, making it difficult for challengers to unseat them.
The result is that next week, despite the public's frustration, Americans won't be sending many incumbents to the want ads or unemployment offices.
It almost begs to question whether the votes are actually counted or if we are simply fooled into believing they are.
Anyone remember the scene in Gangs of New York where they run out of ballots and have counted so many votes as to be like double or triple the actual numbers of real living persons in the area. And the politicians in charge simply command that they keep counting votes, and that they keep counting them in the way they want the outcome to be determined.
Sadly, voting in American has turned into like a wrestling script where the winners have already been decided, and ignorant voters are simply like fans of wrestling somehow thinking what they are seeing and experiencing is some type of real unscripted sport.
Oh sure, occasionally someone might get his or her neck broken, or fall from the ceiling to land and die in utter pain, but most of the time, it's really like going to the theatre or opera and watching them entertain us with plays from shakespeare or something like cats.
Real change, unfortunately, will have to come at the end of the sword.
Did the colonies, vote themselves away from the british empire, and that was it ?
Nope we had to win our independence with bloodsheed and many deaths.
Sadly, it seems the only way to unseat many incumbents like Charles Rangel, Joe Bidden, Nancy Pelosi, is with their deaths, and even than it would seem like most voters or votes would still elect them back into office despite them no longer living.
Or just business as usual at the gov-ment.
