Who represents us?
I am 86 years old and have voted Republican for 60 years. Currently, I am confused, as neither party represents the people. It’s my way or no way on both sides. Looking up the words Democrat or Republican in the dictionary seems to shed a different light on their meaning compared to what we see in the newspaper or on television.
If our homes were run like the childish drama in our Senate and Congress, there would be chaos and no unity whatsoever. Even Bernie Sanders, the Independent, wants it his way. What has gone wrong with our thinking? Can’t our representatives get together for the people and not for themselves? Their promises at election time are just empty words with no thought of doing what they promised.
I can understand why so many people don’t vote, as what they were voting for is usually cast aside for the personal agenda of the elected. May some sense of order, honesty, integrity and cooperation be reinstated in our local and federal government. If not, heaven help us. Clayton Chase Longwood
