What a bunch of bologna! A person gets a law degree, works in court or real estate. He has a good personality; he/she is a good speaker. Folks really like them. Before you know it he is in local politics. Maybe a mayor. The person gets to thinking, ‘ I really don’t like the way things are going. Someone needs to do something. We have too much government and our taxes are too high’, and he finds that folks agree with him.
He runs for office and gets elected. Now he is gonna set the world on fire. Once in congress he finds he must play ball or he will sit in his office and never get to even speak on the floor, much less change some laws. I personally think most folks who go into politics do it to improve the country. But once there realize, 'I cannot do anything unless I play ball.' So they fake it and appear to play ball at first, but the senior politicians have seen this before, they have probably done the same thing.
The Newbie gets to thinking about his retirement, medical, etc. and decides, heck this is a good job. I had better start preparing for re-election. To get re-elected he needs a BIG name to say he is a ‘great guy’, so he plays ball for real, now. He OWES, so his vote goes where his seniors say it goes!
Now I am not going to continue this journal on politics, this is the last entry for awhile on politics. But while I am here….
I was first a registered Democrat, then I changed to an Independent. AT present I am registered as a Republican.
I am sure my next change will be to the Libertarian or The Whigs, a new party that is gaining strength. Probably have 500 members, which will rock the boat. LOL
We could change Washington, and keep our individual politics. If we could just change the people there! Put new Democrats and new Republicans in. The Newbie would not have to worry about his seniors telling him what to do, they would be gone.
Oh well, that is the last of my politics for awhile. I feel better. LOL
Thanks for stopping by the log.

The finance committee refuses to provide funds for the purchase of a
chandelier because none of the members knows how to play one.
people ask, when they
learn that Jesus fed the 5000, whether the two fish
were bass or catfish, and what bait was used to catch 'em.
