Our election scorecard
- Months of obnoxious political ads
- Shocking to a freshman politician
- Campaign promises go out the window
- For the sake of appearances
- Clean up Washington
Here’s our election scorecard. So, the November elections are over. Did your candidate win? Or, are you disappointed that their opponent won?
We would tell you that it doesn’t matter. You put up with months of obnoxious political ads claiming that this person did this, and that person did that, and this person was a lobbyist and the other one was a business man.
Whoever you voted for and for whatever reasons really doesn’t matter because those reasons are meaningless once the candidate gets into office. This is true for a candidate returning to office, but is even more shocking to a freshman politician who ran on a platform of promises and honesty. They told you they were going to clean up Washington once they got there, all you had to do was give them a chance.
Well, now they have their chance and the first week in Washington they will see their campaign promises go out the window. They will be told how it is in Washington, how things really work and how little the citizens influence what decisions are actually made.
If too many people want things one way they will lose by a small margin. This is for the sake of appearances, like your vote really mattered. Other times there will be a landslide vote and citizens can’t believe how wrong they must have been in their assessment of the issue.
You should understand that being a freshman congressman or senator is not everything a person dreamed of before they got there. They will find out quickly from the old guard and those committees who steer the laws in the corporations’ favor just how much they can do to clean up Washington.
QUESTION: What should readers take away from this message today?
ANSWER: That it doesn’t matter who’s running or who’s elected – you will not be represented.
QUESTION: Why is this information timely?
ANSWER: This information is timely because we just finished the November elections for this year and now all the pundits and talk show hosts are quarterbacking the results.
QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?
ANSWER: Even if you are up to speed and knowledgeable about the issues you will find that it only polarizes you more when your candidate loses.
COMMENTARY: Washington went to the highest bidder – the corporations. The politicians are just their puppets. Nowhere do you get represented. That should concern you a lot! How can any citizen invest in this corrupt system when it’s all designed to favor the corporations? If you continue to buy what they’re selling then you’ll become their puppet too.
