Our "leaders" are primarily concerned with one question: "How can I make myself rich, influential, and powerful while appearing to be trustworthy and caring?"
Neither you nor I matter to them. Only if you can help them in some way do you even become a blip on their radar screen. We must realize that the government only exists to perpetuate its own existence. Americans have allowed themselves to become slaves to a system that they don't even need. Will it ever change? We can only push for that.
