The Powers that Be

I struggle every election. Why? Honestly I feel that we are given really bad options and asked to pick the lessor of the evils. I am not a fan of Trump. I am not a fan of Hillary Clinton either. I have posted before on my views in regards to Trump. I’ve not said much about Hillary. Let’s just say there are many things in this world I trust more than I do that woman. Including gas station sushi. But I digress.

I love my country. I am an American. What makes our country great is its citizens not our political leaders. The system is and has been corrupt a long time. We know this. There’s nothing we can really do about it. The only thing we can do is look at the candidates and remember how things truly are then make a choice. Once elected, the said individual may follow through with some campaign promises. Don’t kid yourself about how some of these things are accomplished. It’s a “scratch my back and I’ll scratch your back” system.

Not everyone our politicians associate with are pristine. There are many corporations in the back pockets of our politicians. To think otherwise is quite naive. Without further ado, here are some quotes about power.

  1. I believe you know how I feel about this. There’s literally nobody in the big G that cares about the people. We’re used to serve them.

    I get aggravated when I see people frustrated about certain presidents or political parties. 0 cares for you.

  2. I’ve thought a lot about politics as of late, maybe because we are bombarded by it at every level of the news and media. I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe the two parties uphold each other so strongly like cement glue is that they are trying to get judges elected to get their laws into place. A perfect scenario would be bi- partisan compromises. Too bad that idea don’t float. Have a great weekend Cheers

  3. Hi Mz. Laura, I appreciate your post on Politics and Power. I married a poli-sci major and it’s politics all the time in my life…I make him turn it off on Friday and leave it that way til Monday. It must work because we’ve been married for 40 years this year. Politics is a really dirty business and I don’t trust to much about the system. My philosophy on politics is really simple. I vote for the pro-life candidates, (judges included) and I believe America is stronger than any one man or party. It’s us the people who get to make the choices. Okay that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Have a great weekend, TGIF and it’s freezing and winter in the Midwest. I want to go somewhere warm ❤ Love your challenges ❤
