I was taught to respect the "office" of president and what it represents, though not necessarily to respect the person claiming the title. It's
cliche' that actions speak louder than words, but it shouldn't be trivialized as a mechanism for judging people. Respect is earned and not given
freely, and my vote is given with the hope things will be better... or at least not any worse then before.
In my opinion, this should make the lobbyists irrelevant. If the Representatives, Senators and the President are willing to pimp their being... their
character, to forsake the opinion of the majority in favor of the few (corporations are "people" and there are far more people than corporations) is
there an any more accurate way of describing such people than to call them "sell outs"?
To borrow another cliche': "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."
The people of the USA have two of the most powerful tools created: the vote and the Constitution. Why people don't use the tools to affect REAL CHANGE
in government is beyond me. It's utterly beyond me why people insist on permitting the status quo to continue when it's obvious people aren't
We need a referendum proposed by the people, for the people, enacted in accordance with the will of the people.
