It seems that every election, one party or the other, brings up the corruption and such in Washington, and they set about convincing voters they if elected they will clean up Congress and Washington. Did you buy into this deception? How many times? And just how clean is Washington now because of your vote?
This is a quote from an article on the site called politico.com.
As House Democrats tackle a lobbying reform bill that they pledged to adopt on the midterm campaign trail, reformers say that a number of the members are privately questioning its necessity after all.
This is business as usual, why would a politician, who desparately depends on cash for their very existence, ever do anything to jeopardize that?
Yes, you are DUPED and you fall for the same BS at every election. Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome”. In more clear words, you are just plain stupid, if you keep mfalling for the same thing at every election.
First of all, what the hell is an independent? A literal translation would be someone who thinks independently and votes issues, not the rantings of politicians on endless emotional issues.
In reality, voters who call themselves independents are just disgruntled Repubs or Dems, who still vote along party lines, but may disagree with this candidtae or that candidate over some wedge issue.
Then there are those who vote for a weak, non-existent third party. Most of these are started by disgruntled politicians who are seeking to make a statement, most should be smart enough to know they have no chance.
When asked what your voting preference is; you have three choices, sometimes only two, byt they are Dem, Repub and Independent. By declaring that you are an independent, you are saying “I have no idea how I will vote”. Sad, for if you will not stand for something, you will fall for anything; ok it is an old saying, but it still rings true.
I mean look at the threat that was announced yesterday, Hagel is considering a run as an Independent. But is he? No, he is a republican and will always be a republican. No matter what he tries to call himself, he will never changes those spots.
