I'm Sick and Tired of Losing:

Good Morning Middle America, The King of Simple is a little wordy today, but please read through this article; it’s important to all of us.


As I have watched this whole hideous nightmare of a presidential campaign unfold, I realize how hopeless it is to expect meaningful change from our current system of government. And most certainly we will not see meaningful change for Middle America, who has been totally written off by our leaders as an unsalvageable group.


The continuation of a strong Middle America would require the ultra rich who own and operate our politicians to take a lower profile. That isn’t going to happen under our existing government structure. We need both campaign finance and term limits; neither of which we are going to see under our present or prospective future leadership.


What I realized this past week more than anything else is that I’m sick and tired of the whole charade. I’m sick and tired of waiting. I’m sick and tired of broken promises, poor leadership, non-existent planning and being pandered to.


I’m sick and tired of watching politicians lead a life of implausible leisure and privilege while those who they represent sink into a recession of indefinite depths.


I’m sick and tired of watching our leaders travel first class with limo service and private jets, while those who they represent can no longer afford food and fuel.


I’m sick and tired of our leaders having world class health care provided partially by the labor and taxes of 50 million Americans who have none.


As I watch a Republican President and Vice President preside over a majority Democratic Congress, with few exceptions, I see losers all and failures of the highest level.
