Yesterday evening I saw the presidential motorcade pass, and my first thought was: how distant.
Our elected officials are as far from their constituencies as I am from the moon. When I write to my representatives, I don’t get anything more than a canned letter, with a fake signature, three months later.
The election is coming up shortly, and we’re most likely going to elect a new batch of the SAME EXACT PEOPLE.
Last year we elected a president around ideas of “hope” and “change.” Now we’re just hoping for change, our officials and representatives are different on the outside, and promise the world to voters: only to get into office and do whatever they were going to anyways.
Why do we continue to allow this to occur?
