Study: You have “near-zero” impact on U.S. policy.“The statistical research looked at public attitudes on nearly 1,800 policy issues and determined that government almost always ignores the opinions of average citizens and adopts the policy preferences of monied business interests when shaping the contours of U.S. laws.” As the late Frank Zappa said, “what they do in Washington, they just take care of number ONE! And number ain’t YOU, you ain’t even NUMBER TWO!”

When I think of the gubment as a whole, I imagine the fallen snow of winter, white and clean (that’s the people) then along comes the congress (that’s the neighbor’s 130lb St Bernard), he comes on to my lawn, takes a squat and leaves a 4inch high steaming stinking pile of shit.(that’s obama). The dog then flicks the snow on top because it knows that the snow will cool that shit off (that’s the 2016 election) till it’s a frozen turd on the ground. (democrats lost both houses).

I’ve know this for a while, the so called “Political Elites” are nothing more then whores, with even less morals then the real thing. As far as most politicians in this country are concerned, I wouldn’t piss in their mouths if their teeth were on fire.

Whenever I hear someone say write/call your Senator/Representative my reaction has always been, “You are wasting your time unless you enclose at least $75K-$100K in small bills. Then if you are dumb enough to trust the bastards, you are very gullible.

I wrote to my Senators, Boxer and Feinstein, a number of years ago, and received return letters addressing everything BUT the topic I had written about.

I am in an unusual situation. My congressman actually listens to me. We have a good email relationship and he actually is on the correct side of immigration, 2nd Amendment, and Veterans issues.
Him and Jim Inhofe are the 2 arguments that I have against term limits.

And here is another example of how the left operates, buying votes, more money from Hollywierd and the liberal skank in charge…

Roman senators and leaders also thought they were smarter than the citizens, they went about the business of politics, corruption, orgies, breaking the law, and we all know how well that worked out don’t we?

Politicians, what you find on the bottom of your shoe after a visit to the zoo…
