Those who beleive all our officials are corrupt likely mistrust deeply allowing them to easier become prone to believing conspiracy theories.
Those who fantasize of a clean slate are off the charts for CT.
Anyways, no I do not believe they are all corrupt and I believe most of them on all sides of the isle go in with the best intentions. But with time comes corruption and not always by choice and as long as their are old 'timers' in there to coach the freshman on the ways of dirty insider politics the cycle never ends. And, I know it never will but it can be curbed. I chose to speculate on an extreme scenario that will never happen and all I was saying is how nice it would be to see a clean slate free of corruption and seeing blown egos is only humorous self gratification and not something I find important except for the fact that it would send a message.
If you or anybody else hasn't seen it and are a Netflix subscriber that hangs around these particular threads I URGE you to watch the Netflix original series House of Cards with Kevin Spacey. It's all about dirty insider Washington politics and the process of corruption and Spacey as Frank Underwood hellbent on power and is the best at being the dirtiest and the most corrupt while the public sees a squeaky clean all-star politician. It's highly entertaining and high quality you'd expect to see on something like HBO. Also, I can assure you that while the series is fictional it is soaked in truth. If you see it you'll see what I mean by young politicians with the best intentions being powerless to avoid corruption. Loved that show.
