    Trust

    I find it hard to trust anyone, espically if I do not know them personally so why should politicians be any different.

    I Remember That Day - The Day The World Changed

    I remember the day well. It was a warm day with bright sunshine. I was in work, alone on the 4th floor of the Belmont building. Everyone else had already been moved down to the R&D building in Marcus Hook. Since I supported Phila I had been left behind. The building had long been...

    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...

    Why would I believe in a "well educated" person in a fancy suit how is thought to lie and maybe steal as well? I know they may be some honest politician (super rare, almost extinct) but the bad ones made a bad name out of all politicians. I don't like politics and I don't believe...

    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...

    Political Games For Votes.

    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.

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

    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...
