    All those feels good sounds good word's alone draws out interests to them for a vote only. After elected, they put blinder's on us, to cover up their corruption, while we rot and suffer. The framers of the U.S. Constitution devised a system of government known as representative democracy. We elect individuals to represent our interests in Congress. Today they get filthy rich and represent their own interests in our Congress. We The People are tired of RINO GOP's that are interested in money, greed, corruption, above the law, (ignore us common people unless they need your votes), career politician's who will take money from any special interest and say or do anything to keep his hold on power. It's secret government by the insiders, for the insiders only today. That's for BIG BUSINESS "ONLY" and their deep pocket's. Newly elected representatives may come to Washington with high ideals and lofty principles. Then they're confronted with a big pool of money that's there for the taking. If they don't claim it, someone else will. In this world, thrift isn't a virtue. The meek don't inherit anything.
