Truthfully, I am disappointed in how our country is doing because we need to get on the ball instead of making an error fielding it. Let’s have a clean campaign.
Also, when a person is elected to an office, he or she should finish the whole term before trying to go higher up the ladder. You were elected to represent the people in your area, and you should not have your hat in another ring.
And for those who are our voices, you should not be swayed by the lobbyist who crawls out of his hole to get your support.
It is no secret the leaders in the House and Senate will never get along, so why do we need them? It is no secret that our president needs to spend more time here in the USA, and it is no secret that most of our candidates use the words of their campaign advisers instead of their true thoughts.
So this is what I would like to see: No slanderous remarks about the other guy; no more traveling except for the trips that are necessary.
Tell your representatives they were elected to do their jobs. Warn the rulers in the other countries that we have a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Tell them that we are united to fight back anything that is destined to take us down.
But before we can do any of this, we need to clean up our own houses so that others will see how real democracy works. It is no secret there are those out there who are working from the inside every chance they can, to keep us from doing that. Let’s get tough and vote for a cleaning.
