American Royalty And The Government Shutdown

Sunday, January 21, 2018

Sad but true, our Congressman and senators have become American Royalty that are so arrogant they can continue to receive their pay while our government is shut down.  Those protecting these arrogant politicians work without pay and risk their lives so the American Royalty can continue to live their lavish life styles.

 

The American Royalty is too good to accept the insurance programs they propose for the common people as their insurance is complete and paid for by the hard-working American taxpayer.

 

I, for one, am sick and tired of most of these better-than-thou politicians and have absolutely no respect for the majority of them.  They all talk with care and concern for the common people when running for office while most cluster with each other after they are elected in Washington talking with forked tongues, doing what they want, when they want against the wishes of their constituents. Most of these politicians do nothing to unite our country while some play racism to divide us, line their pockets with special interest money and favor kickbacks.  

 

As a young man 40 years ago, my father and law told me ”Show me a politician and I’ll show you a blankety blankety crook.” At the time I thought he was completely wrong, but after all these years he was right on.  Indeed few statesmen exist. They are for the most dinosaurs of the past.

 

The time has come for Americans to put true statesmen/women back in office.  Vote all the American Royalty out in all the upcoming elections including the local politicians as well unless you can find a true statesman in office. Good luck on that one.

 

God Bless America. Let's vote for those in the future who truly care for the common people, will work to unite us, not divide and represent our wishes in Washington.

More Insanity, Or Is It Something Else? - And Response

The news continues today. The tragedy of still another mass shooting and the defense for any restrictions on guns brings such an array of believers in a gun right to own and further to own as many as one can afford.
