    This is all part of America's "Every representative must go" policy that seems to be going on lately. Yet something else our country doesn't need to be going through.

    Well, they are all corrupt, so I think they should all go. Same for the senators (except possibly Specter).

    They aren't ALL corrupt. Generalizations are bad.

    Unless you can produce a list of 535 individual cases of bribery towards every single congressman, your statement is unfounded

    Unless you can produce a list of 435 individual cases acquitting every single congressman of charges of bribery, your statement is unfounded.

    My appologizes, representatives as anyone who representes the people. I've always hated how representatives only means people in the House of Representatives. I always just mean all of those people when i say representatives... i think i should get into the habbit of just saying "Congressmen"

    Pengwunio: You are under the impression that there is a man or woman in congress who is not addicted to bribery? If so, name that person, and I will personally bribe them. As proof, I'll have the phrase "Penguins suck" appended to the next appropriations, in some obscure section, under that congressperson's name.

    Well you still run into problems there because many people consider a "Congressman" to be a member of the House of Representatives only.

    But I guess we're just arguing semantics now:tongue2:
