Quite a few, I wager.

Not enough. They seem to be getting angrier and digging in their heels. Look at Orrin Hatch. He throws temper tantrums when he's asked a question that he doesn't want to answer.

I;m sure a few are not saints. I'm upset about what just happened to Al Franken. He was sacrificed to prove the Left has a conscience and the Right has no morals or values in human decency.

A classy move by Al Franken. That's how a real man takes responsibility for their mistakes. Ball's in your court, Donald Trump and Roy Moore.

Only the ones with a conscience, so maybe two possibly three maybe.

Kings do not fear peasants.

Only if they are a foolish king.

They do when the peasants rise up. The Roman Empire failed to pay their soldiers and lost their protection by hiring foreign mercenaries.

For most of its history, Rome’s military was the envy of the ancient world. But during the decline, the makeup of the once mighty legions began to change. Unable to recruit enough soldiers from the Roman citizenry, emperors like Diocletian and Constantine began hiring foreign mercenaries to prop up their armies. The ranks of the legions eventually swelled with Germanic Goths and other barbarians, so much so that Romans began using the Latin word “barbarus” in place of “soldier.” While these Germanic soldiers of fortune proved to be fierce warriors, they also had little or no loyalty to the empire, and their power-hungry officers often turned against their Roman employers. In fact, many of the barbarians who sacked the city of Rome and brought down the Western Empire had earned their military stripes while serving in the Roman legions. [history.com]

@Goat I was implying that our politicians are egotistical narcissistic idiots who feel like they are invincible royalty. Kings should fear the peasants.

Is this about Trump's plan to take away land from the National Parks, Trump's plan to rob the poor middle class to give tax breaks to the top 1%, the fact that Roy Moore might be coming into office or the fact that so many people don't seem to give two shits about Trump's or Moore's more than checkered past?

Or all of the above

True ,but we throw one of our own under the bus so we could stand on a moral High Ground.lets all stand around and wait for the sociopaths to somehow or another develop a conscience (that won't happen)

Hopefully standing on the moral high ground will convince enough voters who stayed at home in 2016 to get out to the polls in 2018 and 2020. If not, then the United States deserves its fate.

Right now, neither Democrats nor Republicans are exactly standing on the moral high ground. Both parties are walking train wrecks. The Republicans have knowingly supported a megalomaniacal con artist and the Democrats supported Hillary when Bernie Sanders was the obvious moral choice.
