Libertarian, Republican, Democrat, Independent — whatever! It’s all bullshit and most politicians turn into something other than what they should be once they become exposed to Washington and the culture that prevails there.
I wonder sometimes if it is even common sense for the American People to try to hang onto that old, traditional two-party political system because it has obviously been corrupted beyond repair and every elected official seems to enter the fray with the best of intentions but then becomes just another part of the establishment in the shortest possible amount of time.
What gauls me is that these politicians runs their big, expensive slick campaigns on what appears to be the most ideal platforms of service to The People but once they win their elections and get into their offices they seem to think The People elected them to think for them rather than to represent them. (Think about that for a minute if you dare.)
I think we need to deconstruct the whole damned mess in D.C., and start all over again from the beginning with something new, something different — something that represents the will of the people rather than the will of the elected.
A little aside here — Did you know that the framers of the American Constitution (There were 55 of them present at the signing) ordered themselves enough beer, whiskey and wine to sink a battleship on the eve of the signing of that fabled document?
