When it comes down to it, the differences are few

Most politicians are owned by others. You know that right? No one reads the bills that are voted on to become law, right? It is not what you think. It really is Mr. Smith goes to Washington all over again. I am not saying some go into politics with good intentions, but it rarely lasts. I don't care what party, that is just the way it is.

Lobbyists got their name during the time of President Grant when they would gather around him trying to get something from him in the lobby of the local hotel. They write the bills in their favor and quickly corrupt new politicians who want to stay in office for a long time.

There are more than two choices for president. You knew that too, right? Oh then there would be homework and thinking and reasoning to cast a vote. Too much work.

I don't know how far back one would have to go to see what promises were kept during a campaign. None that I can remember.

You have one hundred senators and 400 plus congressman who all have their own agendas and they vote the way they think will get them elected again and again.

Most people vote on who they like and who sounds better to them. Substance doesn't count. The only thing that matters is what is in it for me. I am no exception.

Our country is broke. We have internment camps waiting for us. Martial law is in the wings. Drones fly over head, I am not making this up.

You have old rich men telling you what to do but is most important is getting the newest phone that will tell all about you to the world.

All this makes me somewhat sad. The land of the free and the home of the brave. Not really. And don't get me started about the love for war. That is for another post.

time for a few cold ones on this Sunday afternoon.
