Where have all our leaders gone?
Tuesday, November 07, 2006
I hope all of my friends voted in the mid-term elections. It was raining in Atlanta, but I still went out and voted.
I am always disappointed by the lack of choices for most of the elections. Where are all of the great leaders in our country???
These candidates are spending $3,000,000 campaigning for a job that only pays $100,000! That fact alone proves that most of them are corrupt before ever taking office.
It costs a lot of money just to pay the application fee to run for public office. There are a lot of great leaders who don't have millions of dollars to lose by running for office.
I think the folks in Washington should sleep in barracks just like our military. They are both doing this as a "service" to our nation.
A lot of people are using their vote to voice their frustration with the war and the state of our nation. Our education system has failed our youth. Our health care system has imploded during the past decade. Our housing "bubble" just burst. There are a lot of things to be unhappy about.
I don't support any particular party. I think it is going to take all of us working together to clean up this mess!
