“Julius Caesar” by William Shakespeare: “The evil that men do lives after them.The good is oft interred with their bones.”
The above quote sums up our Congress in part or totally. It is within our means to change the quality of our representatives. As citizens we have been victims (yes victims) of organized politics and the media with its many offshoots in the airwaves and in print. Without fully understanding it we have been advertised into voting for folks who we clearly see afterwards are not representing us as they said they would. This misrepresentation then leaves us jaded and unwilling to investigate any new aspirants yet we (some of us) do not vote out of frustration or confusion. How about a little clarity? First all politicians in and out of office are for themselves in one way or another! Some are in it for the money, some are in if for the prestige and some (too few) are actually in it to represent heir constituents. There is a saying that “you can tell when a politician is lying when you see their lips moving”. You can’t stop the lips moving but you limit the output by voting regularly and with knowledge. If an aspirant to an office understands that his tenure is dependent on a knowledgeable base perhaps we will get better representation. The power of the government is in the hands of knowledgeable voters.
