    I share similar concerns.  If we trace the "why" of this issue back
to it's root (and discard conspiracy theories - which, given the attitude

our (s)elected officials are more and more often coming from the
corporate power-base.

This is false.


Please get your facts straight before posting to a public list.

I said "more and more often coming from the corporate power-base".

First of all, what you posted doesn't refute that. Second, lawyers can be considered a part of the corporate power-base. They're interested in the same exact issues that I was discussing.

Please read the point before trying to refute it.

 This is not a "discriminatory" practice in the sense that being
elected is a right.  That's the first argument people throw at me.

They're stupid then. It's just plain discriminatory in that it treats one class of citizens differently from all others. You *do* understand *that* don't you?

Sure I do. It's the same reason that there are age and immigration limitations on the ability to be elected to specific offices. You *do* understand *that* don't you?

However, it's an argument that is not grounded in reality.

Or common sense or logic either, but that doesn't seem to stop you for a second.

I'm sure glad you don't make the rules.

Thanks, Dittohead. Likewise. :) You do realize that I was referring to the arguments of those that were questioning my point, don't you? I agree that their arguments aren't grounded in common sense or logic.

Do yourself a favor and remove that commemorative EIB golden microphone from your rectal cavity. Rush wants it back.
