DC Corruption: Not "Whether", but "Why" Is What Counts

We all know about Jack Abramoff, and he's hardly the only one of the type.

That there is corruption in Washington DC is not news, nor is it shocking.  It is sad, but true.

The reason that it exists is far more important, however, and for the zillionth time, it's very simple:  power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Were Federalism actually in force, DC's corruption would significantly contract.  It will never disappear, of course, and it would re-appear in States and their subordinate governments.

Part of the game, however, is to focus on the crime, not the cause.  It's the US equivalent of 'circuses.  Since the MSM lives on "circuses," they have no interest whatsoever in examining the causes.
