If you work hard, success will come

April 5, 2014

I received a letter from Washington on the impeachment of President Obama. They wrote in the letter "everything is for sale in Washington." I couldn't agree with them more. As far as I'm concerned, this goes for both parties. I see congressmen leaving the government and becoming lobbyists. I think they have to wait for two years and then they make millions. This should not be allowed. What happened to our representatives who are in there to serve the people? What's happened to our people? Everything is "What's in it for me?" The greed and the hunger for power is scary. If a person wins a seat, then it's pay back time for the people who helped them in. It's getting to the point you can't run for office unless you're rich or you're indebted to rich people. For the first time in my life, I don't know if I'm going to vote this year. Is it just me or do you feel that way, too?
