Gun pessimist

A vast majority of Americans want stricter gun laws. Problem is stricter gun legislation will never happen in this country because of the extraordinary influence that money has on politics. Money in politics has vastly eroded our democracy and will continue to do so until we as a people stand up against it. It won’t matter if more killings occur because money has corrupted our politicians and democracy so much that efforts to pass legislation to prevent the mentally ill and psychotic from getting guns will continue to stop with the lobbyists. The lobbyists/National Rifle Association have millions to give to members of Congress, who have long since sold their souls for the almighty dollar

Political poetry

Mr . Texas senator, please don’t take this for a snub/We are just worried you’ve had to much Canadian Club/When you try and mix it with a large portion of tea/You know it can only make trouble for you and for me/So I hope I am wrong with this sorry tale that I share/Cause mixing Canadian Club and tea just might ruin health care.

Go, Ted!

Go, Ted Cruz! Finally, finally a Washington politician that is listening to the people. The majority of the American people want Obamacare gone. Why is it so hard for Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and all the other liberal Democrats to understand they work for us and they are to do what we want, not what a few of these lying, selfish, deceitful,hypocrites want! Everything Obama and the Dems have claimed about Obamacare has been proven to be a lie. Your premiums will escalate and you won’t be able to keep your doctor. There are death panels and rationed health care, and it goes on and on, not to mention the fact unemployment will rise because of this debacle. Thank God for Ted Cruz. You, sir, are a true leader and a patriot.
