On Politicians: They DO NOT CARE About You

The most ridiculous reason I hear for why people are voting for a particular candidate is this:  This politician CARES about us!  Or they care about the poor, the middle-class, the down-trodden, humanity in general, etc. ad nauseum.

Hear this people:  Your grandma may care about you.  Your daddy may care about you.  These politicians don’t give a flying FIG about you.  They court you only for your vote.  They love the power, the money, and the opportunities that YOUR VOTE can give them.  If they give the impression that they want to help you and the rest of humanity, you may be duped into supporting their lucrative career.

I’m not picking on one particular party.  For the most part, all the politicians are dirtbags.  Even if one goes into politics with the notion of helping people, he or she can’t survive or get anything done in such a corrupt environment.  You either play along, become corrupt yourself, or drop out.

Make your vote count and vote for the candidate who you think will do the best job of keeping our country strong, safe, and economically stable.  Throughout the years, a strong America has been a stabilizing force in the world.  We need to keep policies in force that will keep people working, and provide incentives to entrepreneurs willing to take risks to devise newer, cleaner and better ways to live and succeed in this world.  When our standard of living rises, so does everyone’s, for the most part.  But please don’t waste your vote on someone because you think they care.  Because, honest to God, they don’t.

    On the whole, I think you are right. But, I must be an optimist, because I cling to the belief that some must actually care.

    I used to be an optimist. I even used to be an idealist. Now I’m just old. And jaded.
