My post election observation and thoughts (after hearing “the word on the street” AND reading social media posts): In my opinion, MOST politicians are not really “working for the people” as they claim, nor care to. They don’t really care about YOU. Only your money and curbside appeal. Remember that.
They’re working to line their pockets and get votes to continue doing so. One needs the other.
And so it goes.
As long as the reward outweighs the risk, who cares about doing right by the people. Ye suckers!
The NYC Mayor’s office has been marred by scandal and numerous accusations and alleged corruption. Hey! But it’s New York City. “…we don’t care, as long as our party wins.” Who cares about scandal, corruption, or malfeasance – as long as “our guy doesn’t get caught.” Hypocrites, all!
Whether you want to accept it or not, the overwhelming majority of ALL politicians equate raising money as the apotheosis of political success and “integrity.” How much money can our guy/gal raise?
Sadly, THAT is the metric by which the Political Machine measures viability.
The Powers That Be don’t actually give credence to character or actions (with words and deeds.) It’s all about the $$$.
Proudly, I’m an unapologetic political Independent – and find both sides tainted; thus I also find that there will never be equal respect (between the two party system which is destroying America in my opinion.) Especially when people hurl barbs after a victory (which is usually only based on how much $ is raised, not based on merit)…this is the game The Powers That Be want you to play.
It causes more bad will and manifests the BS that is dividing and destroying our country at the moment.
The Victors should stop gloating and start F’n governing (for The People) instead of keeping the populous busy with “hey (opposition) ‘nana-boo-boo’ our pie is bigger than yours..we won! We won!”
We The People need to be better informed and stop giving too much attention to the judges on “Dancing with the Stars” and paying more attention to what the Judges on Supreme Court are saying and doing. If more people stood on line to vote as they earnestly stand on line to buy the latest Apple product (which everyone will have soon enough anyway, so you’re not that special) maybe We The People would be better informed and not so divided.
NYC had very low voter turn-out…and so I say, we get what we deserve.
Wise up, and start to make a difference in your little corner of the world.
Open you mind.
