I knew that,

But most politicians have always been cowards when pressured. How many times have politicians voted for something OBVIOUSLY wrong because they were being either forced or manipulated or were to stupid to think of the implications? Have fun making that list.

I do not agree with your statement of "People do not want responsibility". I love the freedom responsibility brings. I'm sure I'm not alone. There seems to be an argument on the DP that "most people don't do _____". Who cares. I'm no history buff but I do not believe there has ever been a society that rose up against something in COMPLETE unison.

If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.
