    I don’t trust any political party or politician, they are diseased liars. Voting for any of the two major parties is like a coin toss where the two sides of the coin are the same. It is factually correct to state that under the rule of both political parties the standard of living of the vast majority of the citizens remains the same, no improvement. They do not occupy the seat of government for the collective good of the people. Government for them is the perfect opportunity to fatten self, relatives and a selected few diehard supporters while they box food out of the mouths of their opponents. Politicians are the epitome of wolves in sheep’s clothing.

      So far I agree I’ve not been impressed with any of them but all it takes is someone who is dynamic and loves Country above self to make a difference in this Country. Haven’t seen that person yet but hopefully he / she will come in my lifetime.

        Agreed! The people have to stop voting for party and closely examine the caliber of the candidates . Talk to people who grew up with them, who attended school or college with them, who have worked with them, who have seen them interact with members of their community. Check their integrity. The politicians are very convincing when in opposition but they spend every waking hour planning how to deceive the people. We need to elect persons not in it for personal gain but for the enduring benefit of the people, especially the ordinary man and woman who are presently catching hell.

    What I am hearing from most of you is cynicism. Remember, politics is the necessary evil. In our two party system, a no-show at the polls is a vote for the status quo or the incumbent candidate. We have to get rid of our cynicism and hold our elected officials accountable. We must make demands and have a scorecard to rate our representative’s progress. We have to get involved. Finger pointing and blaming are not the solution, neither is blind party loyalty. We can start on an upward trajectory by organizing groups in our community and demand our representative to address our issues. This is a start in the right direction and it is better than complaining to the wrong people.
