Last March former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was convicted on corruption charges for using the city government as a criminal enterprise for his personal benefit, and this Thursday the dirtbag politician will get sentenced by a federal judge in the Motor City as reported by Tresa Baldas for Detroit Free Press: "over seven years, Kilpatrick's public corruption schemes, lavish lifestyle and ethical missteps cost taxpayers at least $20 million, a tab the financially strapped city was in no position to pick up but did anyway -- usually without knowing."
See what happens when the people put Democrats in power? Every financially-ruined and corruption-ridden city in the United States is run by Democrats, and yet the ignorant masses just don't care as long as they keep getting their personal cut from the public dole that was promised to them.
Greedy and selfish voters are as responsible for the fiscal and corruption messes across the country as the Democrat politicians they keep electing into office. John F. Kennedy -- one of the few great leaders ever produced by the Democrat Party -- once said: "ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what you can do for your country." Now the people and their leaders simply are asking "what's in it for me?"
