I Don't Trust Politicians

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 409 People

    Seem to Only Look Out For Themselves

    With each passing day it becomes more clear that most of them make decisons based on who will get them re-elected.  No thought as to the affects of what they do to the whole is given.  Only thoughts to what it will gain for them and the group that will provide the most...

    Don't Trust Newt And I Don't Trust Voters

    I recently read an article that states Newt wants to return to Reagan's time and cut taxes in hopes of job creation. He also stated that employment has gone up in the last two months in response to favorable tax legislation. Hmmm, taken at face value who could argue with him...

    Transpearancy & Accountability ... Yeah, Right!

      Exactly, now the Secretary of HHS has tax problems as well ... the Gov from Kansas ... does any democrat pay taxes. Many have and are falling. “Our corruption doesn’t count” is that the new working slogan of the Democrat majority.   Democrats...

    Simple Solution

    A friend emailed this to me recently. Asked that I send it to 20 people. I don't like doing that so I picked EP to post it. Does this make sense or am I crazy? My apologies for simply copying/pasting someone's words. I usually avoid that. Congressional Reform Act of 2012...

    They Come Across As Self Absorbed and Greedy

    I live in South Africa, but this is really just my opinion , even when I watch the global news, so this is how I view politics in general. I think the whole political arena is just a huge cover up for a power greater than the puppets on a string. I read an article once on Skull...

    You can tell there's a general election around

    the corner when the vague and illusory rhetoric of politicians starts to become ever more vague and illusory. I used to believe some of what politicians said, which was fine when they actually said something. Now I notice - more than ever - what isn't said, and the tactics used...

    Not a big fan of Obama!

    The middle class has suffered under his leadership. Last year GDP grew by over 300 billion dollars and 95% went to top one percent. That probably made republicans happy too. Since 1980 middle class has lost 40 % of their purchasing power. Few good years under Clinton. That's it...

    They are just interested in achieving power and will lie, cheat, deceive, beg and promise for your vote but the day after forget you exist and do whatever they want.
