THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO WORK FOR US. THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO ENFORCE THE LAW. THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO GET RICH AND HOBNOB WITH THE ELITE
************* This is rank corruption. Our system selects and rewards legislators and Attorneys General who have no problem selling us out for personal gain. We reward people who disdain democracy and the rule of law.
Have we become so callous? Have we grown so accustomed to being systematically screwed by the rich and powerful who buy their own special treatment?
When will we throw off the yolk of partisan politics? When will we straighten up our backs and realize it’s not D Vs R it’s the brazenly corrupt, wanna-be lords and ladies, and the rest of us serfs and commoners?
Our laws are written by and enforced by the systematically corrupt.
It does not have to be this way.
We cannot get used to this.
Stand up! Fight back!
