Constitutionally, it is "by the people, for the people." But from what I am hearing and seeing, it seems more like "by the politicians, for the politicians." Republican or Democrat, though not all of them, the end goal is a higher salary, it would seem. And they do it through the guise of seeking welfare for the people. When a politician like Pelosi won't even give the other side a chance to speak their minds on an issue, let alone won't listen to US Citizens, whether they're right or wrong, you begin to wonder just how bipartisan they really are. The only bipartisanship I see is them and their money. I personally think that we need to reform. Not start a revolution, but reform our government and weed out the self serving politicians who do not listen to the rightful owners of the US. Our politicians are elected stewards, not kings or queens or princes or princesses. They are elected to represent our majority rule, not do whatever they damn well please!
