Political pandering doesn’t serve the people
Pity us poor Americans, for we have been cursed with a political machine that spends most of its time running for the next election, pandering to special interests, defaming the opposition party and trying to elevate itself above rivals at any cost.
It surely doesn’t take long for the members of our elected government (from both major parties) to take on airs and begin to behave like a schoolyard full of spoiled and affluent little brats. Wouldn’t it be nice if a few more of those in whose hands we place our fate could get over themselves and spend a little more time conducting the people’s business on behalf of all of citizens equally, regardless of party affiliation, race, financial status or social and political leanings?
