Confidence Is Shaking

All our leaders in Washington are failing us. It doesn't matter the branch. They don’t seem to have any contact with the citizens they are sent to represent. How could a large group of elected officials be so out of touch. Everyone of these people made it by popular vote. Even the president, who is elected electorally, won the popular vote.

This leaves two possibilities. They lied to be elected or they were the better of two evils. I know the lying bit probably entered your mind right away. Just the word politics causes us to cover our wallets and children. Anyone who holds office of any level immediately loses points in credibility.

If instead, the vote was for the best of the worst, how do we draw quality people back into this villainous profession. When our nation was founded, we had the best come together to make laws and set our national direction. They made mistakes as all humans do but the good and future of our nation was the first priority. Now we see self and greed as the key motivators in our leaders. Gone is a nation first perspective and going is the quality of our nation.

Look at the confidence polls taken over the last couple of years. Our president is under 30% and congress is under 20%. Yet, these back-wards individuals fail to recognize that a sharp change of course is necessary to straighten our path. We the American people need to send course altering letters and phone calls often. The quality of the cast in power is minimal so are input is of utmost importances. We bloggers and letter writers better stay at it or this ship may sink.

Does Congress even have a say when they poll at 11%?

You are right of course. They do listen to us sometimes, like on the immigration bill. But they forget so soon, and go right back to their bad ways. We cannot slack off. Hold their feet to the fire on each new event that comes along.
