Why are Republicans trying to have sex with children?

Does anybody know?

Please tell me.

WASHINGTON (AP) - GOP leaders admit their offices have known for months that a Florida Republican congressman was sending inappropriate e-mails to a boy who had worked as a page in the House of Representatives.

The office of House Speaker Dennis Hastert, who earlier said he'd learned about the e-mails only last week, acknowledged that aides referred the matter to the authorities last fall. They said they were only told the messages were "over-friendly."

Rep. Thomas Reynolds, who heads the House Republican election effort, said Saturday he told Hastert months ago about concerns that a fellow Republican lawmaker, Rep. Mark Foley, had sent inappropriate messages to a teenage boy.

    Because our society lives on competition for power and authority. Whether selling God, guns, or geisha girls, the power rests in the hands of people who are best at competing for ways to exploit 'resources'. Those resources include people. In order to reaffirm their own position in their deluded world, they have to assert their power over the weak. The violence always goes downhill and it is a direct result of the way our consumer society wants everything, but doesn't want to work for it themselves. The only thing worse than doing an American's work for them is to make THEM do it.

    "Always Low Prices" pits everyone against everyone else in the world for the bottom of the wage barrel, and gets us to degrade ourselves in order to receive whatever meager handouts that the PowersThatBe deign to give us after we let them fondle our children or empty our wallets.

    If you want change, keep it in your pocket. Your dollar is your vote and the machines don't count.

    The Fat Bastards are taking your money, your time, and your children's future, and you keep buying their oil, their trinkets, and their goddamn TV's.

    What the hell is wrong with you?

    Don't you know how insane it is?

    You can pass all the laws you want, but until you stop competing with yourselves and with nature for little bits of instant gratification, there will always be someone who wants more gratification than they deserve. The limit won't be laws, but neighbors.

    Why does a simple Constitution like ours require so many people to suck up resources if this is supposed to be a country "of the people"?

    Throw ALL the bums out!!

    What the certainly fck are you even speaking about? initially, the position in the structure does it say you've the right to a sex replace? 2d of all, I truly have not in any respect heard of any major flesh presser from any party attempting to outlaw such practices. third of all, the right to pursue happiness is suggested in the DOI, no longer the structure. Fourth of all, it isn't an equivalent rights challenge, because if sex differences were unlawful, they could be unlawful to transsexual and non-transsexual human beings alike.

    Just because one congressman makes inappropriate emails to a young boy does not mean that all of them are potential pedophiles.

    First, he didn't have sex.

    Second, you should look in your own backyard.

    Third, ALL elected officials should be sent packing when it is discovered they are being inappropriate in any way. That includes, things done with pages, INTERNS, assistants, etc.

    I'm holding judgment until the "Linda Tripp" in this story surfaces. Why are you not interested in what is really important? http://apnews.myway.com/article/20060930/D8KF9SV80...

    It's politics - people are inperfect, mess up and they try to cover up things like this for political reasons - it is you who are taking to another level.

    That is even worse.

    Please refer to story where sex actually took place. TYIA

    He sent some emails, when you get more than that let us know. One good thing, unlike your boy Clinton, at least he asked and didn't try to rape someone.
