Let's get rid of politicians altogether : They are a miserable, corruptible anachronism from Horse & Buggy days. . Mark "corruptible" ! . Of course, the Public has adequately shown that it, too, is corruptible -- but what can one say ?

I've been guilty of favoring one party as at least speaking to the issues that directly impact average people as opposed to Republicans that barely disguise their disdain for us in favor of billionaires. Since the president signed the TPA legislation (allowing himself and future presidents to negotiate trade for transnational corps and avoid the full involvement by congress) I realize the whole body politic is corrupted by the huge billionaire contributions and the citizen welfare is ignored. Some politicians may believe they can advance some working class agenda by selling the keys to the kingdom. Not true.

Bottom line is most of the political class (especially the Republicans) believe we can be ignored when the alternative is between us and big business. This is in your face Florida, your tax dollars collected for one purposed but handed over to big business, just like the federal government is doing and Lee county as well.

The common question anymore seems to be "who do these guys work for?" Their recent actions and the comments of the chairman for the Koch Brothers controlled ALEC group have provided us with an answer. Their personal greed trumps their desire to serve the citizens of Florida and according to a recent published boast ALEC controls the agenda in Tallahassee. Elections have consequences - VOTE.

You really seem surprised that politicians ignore voters until election time. That they lie, cheat and steal and are the lowest lifeform. I apply this to all of them. So if you vote for your good old local politician again, YOU ARE A FOOL. Throw them all out, that will get someone's attention and maybe you can even get your pride back
