We have, from time to time, heard talk about government reform.
Usually those who bring it to the public's eye, just silently fade away, and the issue is forgotten.
Occupying a government office and representing the public, is an important job. It's a position that demands alot of time and responsibility, owed to those who elected you to that office. (The public, not the super packs).
Americans take it for granted that there is always a "certain level," of "compromise," from politicians, between them and others, like lobbyists, corporations, other politicians, etc.
They have become comfortable with the idea, that low ethics, corruption, greed, and even breaking the law, are all par for the course.
Here's an honest question... When's the last time you can say, you felt that your elected representative "represented you?"
Of the past few years, American government seems to be anything but that.
With those holding office, indulging their own interests, exercising their own power, to do as they please for themselves...
We even allow them to vote their own pay raises, while millions of Americans languish below the poverty line, for minimum wage, or have nothing at all.
It's become business as usual for big business, Wall Street, and foreign investors, who are buying up American business and land.
Yet, "We The People," continue to silently allow these crooks to get fat on our dime, and grow their own bank accounts, at our expense. While they give away the country, expose our borders to invaders, and buddy up to those who call themselves our enemies...
