I believe most politicians in the Democrat and Republican parties don't care about the U.S. or US citizens, and most if the rest of them just plain
hate the US and its citizens. They love their money and their power. They like their dirty secrets not being released by those controlling them.
These "crazies" in the Republican party truly are either crazy, or extremely gullible and uneducated, but it makes no difference to me. They are no
less scum than their more reality-based Democratic counterparts who have greater reasoning skills and knowledge than the average 3rd grader.
Yes, it is shocking how stupid these people are, and it is offensive that they hold any job paying above minimum wage, but I can't give them Dems any
points for this one, because they've both (parties) been at war with the U.S. (in earnest) since the Kennedy Assassination.
I am sorry you and many others feel that way. I have studied politicians in FL and NY for about 40 years and I see the same pattern over and over
again. There are many good and honest people in public office, people who fight for individual freedoms and civil rights fight diligently, constantly,
and honorably without any reason for apology or shame.
Granted many are useless and have overstayed their welcome but people who say that the government is a disaster because they are an interference don't
know what they are speaking about.
The government was a disaster for the middle class recently because people in politics saw their golden goose and decided to exploit it by carrying on
activities outside of government regulations and taking full advantage of loopholes. When government steps in and decided to close those loopholes
naturally the guilty are going to scream government intervention is hurting them. The middle class needs as much government intervention as they can
get and the wealthy want none of it because they do not need the government protections. The middle class, being more vulnerable does.
It bothers me that good and decent people doing incredible work are not recognized or counted simply because they are not blowhards who toot their own
horn and lord their accomplishment over others and to the press. And because people are reading snippets of newspaper stories over the years and so
consider them selves educated or knowledgeable in the workings of government without really doing the legwork and investigating exactly who and what
groups and measures is responsible for the legislation's they either love or hate. It is easy to blame government and politicians overall for the
dastardly actions of a few.
There are people fighting to steal your freedoms away while others are fighting to give it back to you. You should learn to tell the difference. I
find people who blanket assess groups of people are disillusioned and damaged by others close to them. Ineffective themselves, they consider everyone
else ineffective as well, and they have lost faith in the goodness of human nature. That is very sad and disappointing and it is easy to get that
impression sometimes but simply untrue.
There are lots of good people fighting tirelessly, without reward or recognition, to keep you free. You should not only recognize them, you should
find out who they are, support them and you should thank them.
