Are you kidding? Most all of them are scoundrels. They've either sold their souls, or they never had souls to begin with.

Truer words....

I guess that's what kills me about this.
Both our Florida Senators (Bill Nelson-D & Marco Rubio-R) are pretty good guys. (Nelson had a decent track record for advocacy as FL's insurance commissioner).
Yet both of them signed on to PIPA, Rubio as a co-sponsor.

Is it even possible to hold office in the White House or Congress and not become owned by conglomerates?

Being Dem, I am ashamed, but this is really a bipartisan thing also. Dems can take the money but it may cost them in the long run, what they should be saying is this legislation is wrong, and get input from more than just the industry, he11 didn't the industry write this piece o crap anyway, let them take the heat.

Yes, but both parties are corrupted by corporations - beyond distinction.

It's just that some corporations traditionally favor Congressional Republicans. With other corps, it's Congressional Democrats.
See this article titled 'After Outcry, SOPA Backers Are Mainly Democrats'.

Neither party is less corrupt than the other.

Speaking of scoundrels did you guys see Santorum last night on the debate talking about this?

Basically taking both sides of the issue in one sentence. Can't stand that double talking POS.

All the other candidates backed away, with Ron Paul once again outclassing all the others by trying to block this bill before they others probably even heard about it.

Rand Paul has promised a filibuster.

I think it's one of those things like "When in Rome, do as the Romans do".

Otherwise, you're not gonna fit in, and that would mean you wouldn't be there very long.

The other side of that is similar to the way if something gets repeated enough, people will believe it whether it's right or wrong. And in the case of politics, when the people around you are constantly doing these things and "getting away with it", over time it will affect you and you will eventually begin to do the same.

AFAIU it was written by the MPAA/RIAA to serve their own purposes and damn anyone else.
