I thought it was elected by Super PAC's and lobbyists.
Right Jeff...it's all about playing to the majority(s) to maintain control.
The framers knew the dangers of majority (mob) rule and set up a limited govt so the minority doesn't easily get railroaded by an insane majority, but even then it can be hard to stop abuses of power by the corrupt elected who hold the ideals of special interest groups (TPTB) above anything else while simultaneously pretending to satisfy and serve the interests of a misguided majority.
This has happened for a long time now and last week proves that we're living this today.jpete wrote:I cast my last vote a couple weeks ago.
I'm still gonna vote though
Last weeks show is no worse than the show produced in the previous 3 election cycles! Its been since before I was born that we had a truly decent leader in this country!
