They Only Care About Power

So the Republicans are going to take back the House and, perhaps, the Senate. Well, whoopie. Does anyone really think things are going to be different? Outside of Sean Hannity who is just an extension of the Republican National Committee, is there anyone with half a brain who believes that things will be different?

Here is the truth: politicians do not care about you nor do they care about what is best for their constituents. They only care about remaining in power. Period. Remember that the next time you vote.

Along the same lines: there is no difference between the two major political parties. Voting for a Democrat is almost the same as voting for a Republican. While their issues might be different, you will find they are the same in the end. What is the difference between Joe Lieberman and John McCain? NOTHING.

Sure, you can make the argument that Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner are miles apart. I would agree. However, when the Democrats are in charge like now, Boehner disagrees. Come January, when Princess Nancy is out on her boney ass, she will be turning up the Nay votes. But, do not forget that each is about maintaining (and growing) power.

The government spends too much money. Obama is hammered for running his deficits. Of course, Bush went through plenty of money himself. What is the difference if the spending is on pork like studying some stupid owl or giving it to Haliburton? Both take money out of your pockets.

As a sidebar, the Republicans cast themselves as the party of smaller government. They like to point to their idol Ronald Reagan. Lest we forget, Reagan spent huge sums of money on defense. Again, it matters none what it is spent on, in the end it comes from working people who pay taxes.

Ultimately, we need to kick all these bastards out of office. If you think you are being represented, then I want to drink your Kool-Aid. In the end, we are all being screwed in the interest of special interest. Taxation without representation. Seems I heard that mantra before.
