Politicians should never vote for anything which removes a freedom or takes money of their voters.

Hog-wash... bad politics may be, King George W's politics may be, the GOP of the 90's politics may be, but this does not mean that all are... politics is no more or less than what the players choose to make of it... and we are a part of that play...
