Whatever Happened to Putting People First

I have a hard time trusting politicians. Do they make their choices because they truly believe that is what is best for the citizens of this great nation? Do they put the welfare of their political party first? Their own interests?

Don't be naive Sheri. I can hear them say that to me. Politics are not that simple.

Yet, I believe there has to be a way to do what is right and in doing so their political party will ultimately be rewarded as well as the country.

Nothing is simple. Nothing is easy. Nothing is as it seems. Motives are mixed with personal gain as well as political party gain.

Even with our countries problems, we have an extraordinary government that does fail often, but truly has the ability to right itself and protect its people from evil within and from without.
