Having read what the OP wrote, the following can be stated:
Is anyone surprised that the very people that were elected to office ignored what the voice of the people that they are representing are saying?
After all this is not new, and it is a fact that those who are politicians will lie to the people. Yet people cry and complain when they are either
ignored or it appears as though their congressman is not listening to them.
The problem is that once a person gets into office, they feel secure, well secure for the first 2 years in office, they believe that their decisions
that they make will not be held against them. The look to sit in positions of power where they are not going to have to answer for such and that by
the time the next election comes up, they are looking to stay there. While they can get away with ignoring calls right now, and all coorespondences
as it suits them, the fact is that they still need votes and you can bet come election time they are going to spin a tale to get elected.
The problem is that we the people have become apethetic to who is in power, and really have no clue as to why they vote they way that they do, nor do
they share their decision making process with their constituents. Listen sometimes to how they try to change the subject when it is one that they do
not want to talk about or not give an answer. And those that do, are often either shot down, or not given the courtesy of speaking in the first
These votes and laws that are unpopular, they should serve as warnings to the general public, as not to go with one party or another. When voting
find those that match your ideals, but also think, that for those at the federal level are going to have to vote for what is good for the country,
not just one part of it.
And above all never relect a person into the same office, or you end up with people like Pelosi and McCain who are unwilling to compromise or view
that they might be wrong.
