No. That's not it at all. A politicians number one goal is to stay in office. Power is everything to many of these people.<quoted text>
Yup you're dense. I'm not sure where you got the idea that I lean left, but you're off on tangents when all I said was that our elected officials have sold is out. They get their pockets lined for passing legislation forcing corporations to move production over seas.
Go out and talk with people. It's not like talking to people here. Most have no idea what's going on in politics or with policies. How do you think DumBama got elected? Twice!!!!
When DumBama first showed up, he was against about a dozen or so other experienced candidates in the primary. It boiled down to Hillary and DumBama. DumBama had barely any experience in federal government and Hillary had 8 years in the Senate and 8 years in the White House. Who did the Democrats vote for? They voted for the most inexperienced candidate. Does that sound like an intelligent electorate to you?
So all the environmentalists know is that the Democrats are getting on corporate America and industry in particular. Legislation is not passed for money, legislation is passed to buy votes.
