Leaders just don’t care

Is anyone else in this country getting tired of the same old bull from our elected politicians who are supposed to be working for us? After the State of the Union address, the sides are still divided.

Isn’t it about time we started electing people who don’t have hundreds of thousands of dollars in their bank account, and get subsidies from large companies to vote in their interest, to get their act together and do something for America instead of their pocketbook? It doesn’t matter what one party says, the other disagrees with it to add more money to their bank account.

Make no mistake, these people do not care about you. They have their wealth and financial experts ensuring that their political money will never, never be lost. But you and me? Adios. They just don’t care, no matter what they say, or what promises they make to get elected.

I hope to be dead before the world witnesses the downfall of the greatest country in history.
