I don't normally do this, but I have to say something...

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

The outcome of the election is nothing more than a statement that people are tired of the status quo. Whether or not you feel the results are good, bad, or indifferent, people are tired of being taken advantage of by a system that is extremely broken, rudderless, and wastes taxpayer monies on an over burgeoning system that is hyper-redundant with agencies who do not even speak to each other. If families operated their budgets and spending like our government does, their phones would never stop ringing with calls from debt collectors! Honesty and fiscal responsibility should be the norm of any government just like it should be for any family or individual. Yet our government operates as if the taxpayers are a sponge that they can wring more from each time a "pork barrel" project is needed to cinch an election. There should be no such thing as a career politician. Be of service representing the people who elected you, stick to your campaign promises, serve your 2 terms, and move on (without the life-long pension and perks that the rest of us couldn't have access to if we tried). Be a servant, not a leech. Leave the electorate better than you found it, and plant the seeds for others to do the same.
