I honestly do not know where this is going to stop. It seems that all politicians are in it for themselves. At least the ones in power today. My affiliation has not always been GOP. When I was young and dumb, Clinton caught my eye, and since I hated Reagan (for personal reasons) and he (Clinton) spoke to the young generation, I voted Democrat. However, as I began to have a family and was told that oral is not sex and my kids could not watch the news, AND folks dying left and right (who knew the Clintons)and ball faced lies were told, and secrets GIVEN away, I shifted away from the dark side.
So, where are we and what options do we really have? Can a non-GOP or non-Dem win the presidency or other national public office? I kind of doubt it. Heck, maybe it's my thinking and people like me, that will always keep that from happening. You see, I cannot stop thinking about Ross Perot. Anyway, it seems the elected politicians have forgotten the people and that they are there to do a job and that job is for them to vote the way we tell them to. They are not elected by lobbyists, nor are they to vote independently of what they want! What is it going to take for things to come back around? Well, I feel we are almost there. The Tea Parties were the first step and the next step will be something in between that and our elected officials being drug out of office by the people who put them there.
