Everything You Need to Know About American Politics




Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has resigned as a national co-chairman of Republican Mitt Romney's presidential campaign to lobby for Wall Street.

If anyone still wonders why this country is so messed up, the above sentence should explain it.  This is basically how bribery works in politics.  You listen (and acquiesce) to lobbyists while you serve in office.  Then, when you get out, the lobbying firms pay you the bribe money they owe you hire you to lobby the next round of elected officials.  It’s the circle of life.
