Again the media and politicians (including) ILLINOIS President Elect Obama seemed surprised Governor Blagojevevich is in my opinion a criminal. The allegation is Blagojevich was attempting to sell the Illinois Senate seat vacated by Obama. My question to the public:
Is there any political office that is not sold? Every local, state, or federal elected job is sold to the highest bidder. The politician and their supporters who can generate the most funds is routinely the one who gets the prize. For readers who do not believe this I challenge them to run for the next Senate election with only $10.00. Ok, lets go with $100,000 and you have the best economical, foreign, and national security plan than any has ever had. You will not get past your local blog with a run for a Senate seat with $100,000, the prettiest of smiles and a sound plan for our country. Come up with a few million and you may be announced the winner. You can buy an elected job with millions, but not pennies.
Blagojevich is a criminal, but only because he vocalized what other elected officials do behind the scenes. Quietly receive your donations from Saudi Arabia and keep it quiet; you could end up the President of the United States! Respectfully, Dave Gaubatz
