Am I the only one who feels that so many of the people running our country are to wrapped up in their own personal life drama that they can't effectivly run a country? No matter if it's financial scams to line their pockets further, or affairs, or questionable life styles (like a congressman who hires prostitutes - because the last time I checked, that was still illegal)... I feel like over the past few decades...the men running our country are nothing but spoiled little boys, living very well off our tax dollars...not doing much of anything for anyone but themselves. Are the elected officials of our nation so wrapped up in greed & sex that they can't think of anything else? It would seem so. (I have ideas on as to why this is...but it's not the point of this particular rant). Are there no more men of integrity & standards of conduct anymore? Is there no one out there who truly believes in 'we the people'? Is there no one who would even try to at least tilt our country back in the direction it was intended?
It kills me...but over the past few years, I have very quickly lost all hope in our country. This is truly painful to me. Me, being the eternal optimist...to give up on something I so once believed in just hurts. I guess our citizenship truly is in heaven...and I really do have to learn how to fully embrace that reality.
