LETTER: People, politics and politicians

You know I love hearing people attack the opposite political party. Damn liberals, racist Republicans, stupid Democrats, extremist Independents.

When will you learn that politics cannot and will not solve anything. They corrupt and destroy. Look what politicians have done to government. It's a big bureaucratic charade and yet you still think that electing a certain party will change things? Who is the real idiot? Who is the real racist?

You want to see a change in the country then get off your butt and shout at the top of your lungs at these politicians. Tell them that this charade doesn't work for you or any of the rest of the working class citizens. It only benefits them and their corporate backing. They don't need $100,000 or more to survive.

Many Americans seem to be able to survive on $20,000 or less annually. Electing politicians changes nothing. Getting up and getting your friends and family to speak out against these bureaucracies will make changes. Think of it like this; politicians are like children, if you don't pay attention and stay on top of them, they do stupid things. These politicians have been unsupervised children for decades. When will you wake up and realize that you are the change, not politicians!
