I just received a letter from the Democratic National Committee asking for my input and, of course, money. Here is my reply to them:

I won't give one dime to any politician, Republican or Democrat, until you can prove that you're really in it for the American people and work together to fix the mess this country is in.

Both parties are guilty of blaming the other party for failures when they, themselves, fail to listen to what the other party is saying. No, it’s one party’s way or no way at all.

Sorry, but one size does not fit all. God gave you two ears and one mouth. That means you need to put your listening ears on twice as much in comparison to regurgitating your rhetoric from your party’s playbook.

The regular person has no one looking out for their interests.

But thanks for asking me to send of my hard-earned money to a bunch of greedy idiots who are completely out of touch with the reality of the everyday person.

I hope the greedy politicians and political parties all enjoy their nice salaries, great benefits and pensions. The day the politicians do away with the pension system and accept benefits equal to the average American will be the day I might be able to trust any of them.
