I was homeless at the time and the incumbents goons (I assume) made sure I didn't remember doing it so I wouldn't follow through with the check and petition.

I once read that 85% of the homeless have drug and/or alcohol problems
I don't see them being in charge of anything except holding signs asking for money

You have ignorant money grubbing politicians, most in fact, and you have ignorant drug dependent homelessness. The key word in both is ignorance. I just want someone who isn't ignorant in a genuine way.

Who knows about discrimination more than the homeless who get bullied and beat up?
Who knows more about injustice than the homeless who are treated as a lesser human being just for being poor?
Who is more kind than those who humble themselves before all others asking for their help?
The homeless has the right perspective to make sure that things stay with equality and justice. They actually experience the worst suffering, embarrassment, and humiliation by society.
But it seems people would rather want charismatic, attractive, rich politicians who speak with clear word pronunciation and expensive suits and has never been poor and seen what it's like on the 'other side' rather than just the 'rich/middle class' side.
