Politicians Also "For Sale or Rent"

Reader comment on item: Think Tanks for Sale or Rent

Submitted by Mike Ramirez (United States), Sep 15, 2014 at 10:38

Excellent article! Now, there should be a similar exposé titled, "U.S. Politicians for Sale or Rent". This would reveal the list of names of our present and past legislators (at all levels) who have received generous monetary campaign contributions, donations to their self-named libraries, personal trips and lavish gifts given by representatives from any foreign country.

Additionally, such influence-peddling should be viewed as treasonous when the end result favors any entity whose intention is to undermine the sovereignty and stability of the United States of America. How sad that our politicians and now our "Think Tanks" would even think of allowing themselves to be in a position to sell out America for their own personal gain. But, then again, foreign powers have known all along that there are such individuals who can be "bought".

Thank you, Dr. Pipes, for putting a "Not For Sale Nor Lease" at your door.
