That's right, there are some farmers who are trying to become senators and representatives. If they can get two terms in, the get the special lisence plate, a nice pension, and health care that is second to none. Let's get the distance between rich and poor a little further.

One of those farmers will be at the Corning El Acapulco tomorrow night at 6:15 for the Clay County Republican meeting. Maybe you can voice your opinion there since they will be answering questions... Bet you won't show. Yes, some do abuse benefits and make their own benefits up but not all.

If you show up then you will be doing what we all should do. Putting politicians in check. Go there and ask some questions and decide for yourself.

You are correct sattraveler both sides have ruined the country. But you still have to get involved and try to change things or we will really be looking at hard times. There are also third party choices and the only reason they aren't as powerful is because people complain but don't choose to make a difference. If you choose to make a difference, then complain away. There is plenty to complain about with this racket.

To "pillow talk", I think Blake Johnson will be there, I saw it posted on facebook somewhere. It will be tonight at 6

Well I agree with you Okay, We need a third party to get in power but it needs to be people that believes in smaller limited government and States Rights. The problem is that the Current two parties have the people in the Country soooooo damn dependent on atleast One type of government welfare and these people are not going to give it up, even thought many of them have recognized they are part of the problem. I really don't know what the answer is at this point but i'm afraid that what will eventually happen will be a revolution in this country; then maybe a newer form of government( Not exactly Better). It all has to start at the lowest level of government to grow the party before it will ever make it to D.C. Just my humble opinion but I truly believe that things will get MUCH worse before they can ever get better.
