Why do, we the people, allow things like this?...

Seriously, Dick Lugar has been a Senator for Indiana since I was born, and we allow him to not even live in our state.  Come on.  This is part of the problem with our system.  A Senator of a state is to be a resident of that state otherwise think about it. . . . . . . how could he vote for what is right for the citizens of that state?

Man I am so sick of feeling like people in America just don't care about the rich and corrupt individuals that we elect.  I'm also sick of my vote not counting (no one's really does here), and the fact that we're really called a democracy.  Get real people.  We live in this country where guess what, the government does control us and they do run the country and our voices are NEVER heard.

The law states that in order to be a US Senator these things have to be true:
"No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen."
http://www.senate.gov/civics/constitution_item/constitution.htm  I figure he'll argue that he was an Inhabitant of the state when he was first elected thus keeping him for being charged with Fraud, but in my eyes he's a criminal.  That is CRAZY, and we just turn a blind eye at all this corruption.  I'm not sure how to make a huge change, but I'm pretty sure writing my Senator is NOT going to work on this one.

We need to figure out how to take our "democracy" back.  We need to have voices and stand up for our rights.

Jon Stewart - Run for president, please...
