Can someone answer these questions?
When a politician takes the oath of office and when he or she signs an agreement with ALEC, are they now involved in "A Conflict of Interest?" They, in my understanding are defending and upholding the Constitution of the United States of America, not corporate American interests.
When politicians vote to cut benefits for veterans and Food Stamps for low income people and then vote not to raise taxes on the 1%, CONFLICT OF INTEREST?
When politicians close the government and furlough federal employees and civil employees and yet keep their gym membership, expense accounts and salaries, is that CONFLICT OF INTEREST and Not in the Best Interest of the People of the United States?
When Did Special Interest Groups become the politicians' constituents and NOT even live in their respective areas? Most in my opinion are lobbyists who work for corporations that HAVE agendas they want pushed forward.
Just indulge me for one more question that has me totally confused. When did the corporations and groups like ALEC get elected to Dictate the Laws of Our Land?
These are just my opinions and concerns. Do they ring a bell for anybody else to question what is really gong on and not just sit idle? Just remember one thing, 2014 is right around the corner and we can exercise our right to vote. Oh and one more thing, remember how they also stick in pork barrels when they write laws. Who do they really benefit?
Ciao for now.
Pork barrel Webster's Dictionary definition:
Government projects that benefit people in a particular part of the country and that are done in order to help the political careers of elected officials
Things are out of control. The average person feels disenfranchised. It seems that our elected officials come in two varieties:
1- The party that is blatantly on the side of big business and gave us eight years of George Bush, Herbert Hoover, etc., hides behind a veneer of patriotism and is unified in it's goals which clearly preclude any cooperation with the Democrats..
2- The party that purports to be on the side of the working person and makes grandiose campaign promises, but always seems to seek the approval of the official party of Hoover and Bush and calls that being bipartisan. Cases in point, Bill Clinton's support of Globalization and our friends the blue dog Democrats, who are closet Republicans.
I really need to know how my audience feels about all of the above.
