Betrayal

What ever happened to “politician” being a voluntary job? That the representatives had to be otherwise gainfully employed? That they would receive a stipend for expenses while in service and that is all? That way the reps at whatever level would have to be there on a more or less altruistic level. That’s the way it was when the country was founded. When the lure of huge salaries that could be self-regulated became the way, things changed and “We The People” have been sold out ever since. And when I hear statements like “I know that most politicians WANT to give back to their country”, (from Obama’s latest address),I just want to puke. They make speeches filled with glorious condescending placation and hollow rhetorical promises and then turn their backs and sell out to the highest bidder. Our president is NO exception. We have no more self-sacrificing heroes running to render service to their country. What we have now is a feeding frenzy of greedy usurping sharks willing to do whatever it takes to achieve coveted positions and the public welfare be damned.
