Ooooh, don't push that
button of mine! I just might break the board rule of no profanity!
It was intended in the beginning (I know I refer to those old guys from the 1700's alot, but the more I see where this country is going, the smarter
they appear!) a salary wasn't there, and only those who could afford to serve the country could
serve the country. Sure, there'd be pitfalls
to that in todays nation, but I'm sick and tired of having to pay for their huge salaries and their equally huge retirement packages.
And, as far as taking back our party from the right-wing and setting it back on a socially and fiscally conservative track without the B.S. that is
making some of us sick and tired, I agree. For years I refused to call myself a Republican. Sometimes I wish I'd never started. It is obvious that
both the major parties are so far off track from where we should be it isn't even funny.
Oh well, ever nation that rises, falls. We'll be no different.
