The "politicians" are in politics, not for us 'the people', they are in it for themselves. Sometimes I wonder where these politicans came from, are they people? Or are they lizard people with an agenda? We need real people like all of us, not the vampires in office now. Don't we all feel like they don't care? Don't we feel like we are being drained of hope for our futures with their nonsense? We need to remember how great our country is, and will do, if only the politicans were humans. I say we vote them out of office asap and get good, honest, truthful people. "That's Us" Not them. We know who these skanks are.
How do I know you are real?

How do I know what is truthful, good, and honest?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Your wackjob is someone else's idea of a great man. Our downward trajectory is being driven not by politicians but by 'we the people'. Somewhere along the way it became every man for himself ... I'm entitled to mine and screw the rest of you ... if things don't work out it's someone else's fault. This is repeated from lobbyists, to CEO's, to wall street, to union members, down to welfare recipients. It will ultimately be our undoing. Unfortunately, the real people are the vampires.
