Politicians are full of crap, every single last one of them, full of crap. We like to watch the D.N.C. (Democratic National Convention) on the news channels, wear a button proclaiming our support of one party or another, and believe every last one of the lies they spout every time there is a camera around.
You know what kind of a politician I would vote for, a poor one, who's been through a lot of crap, is on an anti-depressant, and has had to use food stamps at least once in their adult life.
It'd be nice to have someone in office who isn't after our wallets, oil, and a nice retirement check.
How about someone that knows what it's like to be in the lower class, and I'm not talking when they were a kid, I'm talking as an adult.
No more lawyers(how many jokes about them do we need before we stop electing them to office), former politicians children, rich kids, or life long politicians. They don't understand what it's like to really be hurting at the gas pump, join the military just so you can have something to go to college with, or what it's like anymore to make the choices that we "normal" people make on a daily basis, just to survive.
Politicians are like hookers; they tell you what you want to hear, make you feel good about yourself for a bit, than screw you out of every last penny you've got on you.
Now I know you're saying "A person without any of that wouldn't have the experience to run the country or even a small county", well I say that's what advisers are for.
The president needs to understand the people to be for the people, not of a whole other class way above the people.
And lets face it, we haven't had a president in or run for office since the very beginning that had any idea of what the people really want. John McCain and Barrack Obama don't know what "real" life is like any more than Tom Cruise or Britney Spears. We've made politicians rich and given them power, let's start making them actually work for us. We are their employers, not their employees.
