My Two Cents.....

I have a lot of opinions, and when it comes to politics there are just a couple of things that I would like to see happen.

First of all, I think that all politicians should be held to a high standard of honesty and integrity. Maybe a '3 lies and you're out' rule would be good.

Secondly, I firmly believe that no politician should be paid more than the average middle class American, and that the benefits they receive should be comparable as well.

The problem, in my opinion, is that politicians feel that they are somehow not subject to the same standard of living or the same moral standard as the rest of us. Therefore, since they are so out of touch with our reality, how can they govern effectively?

Sadly, I see a 'Lord and Serf' culture hidden in our present day society. Braveheart anyone?

I completely agree with you! I felt that if Obama really wanted to convince us he was going to make those changes he talked about, the first change he could have made was that he wouldn't have spent millions and millions of tax payers money on a big inauguration party for himself.
