Politics is Just a Way to Make Money

moneyfallingIn the local paper, a gentleman wrote a letter that contained some very good points and, in my opinion, perfectly describes the current situation in our (U.S.) government.

Here are some excerpts:

Let’s stop pretending that this whole mess is President Barack Obama’s fault. This has been years building up.

It was years of inflation and the top taking whatever they wanted while controlling the government.

It has been years of special interest groups pushing through their agenda with money, oil companies making sure we are dependent on their product, tax breaks for corporations while they outsource millions of jobs every year. These groups, which are making record profits every year, are keeping us busy fighting between two parties while they make off like bandits.

Politics is now just a way to make money, not a way to help your nation.

He also urges people to research things for themselves and not just listen to your party’s beliefs because, when it comes down to it, both parties will change their beliefs for some cold hard cash.

I think few can deny that everything nowadays is about M-O-N-E-Y. And if it weren’t for the GREED of some, others might not be worrying about how to make their next house payment, put food on the table, and/or gas in the car.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the answer. Do you?
