then why is it so complicated to work on the issues that really help the people? They have all this education and experience with all the things that they brag about,,,,,then how did we end up with no healthcare ect? I think I would rather have just plain down home country people running for elections...looks like these genius's could use alittle help.....

Their objective is to make it seem like they are going to do something for you so you will vote for them. That is their only purpose, to get into office so they can have that perceived power over people. It is an ego trip for them to be big shots. It makes them feel imnportant. Of course, they care little about helping the many who need it and only help a few close associates. If the politicians really cared about this country, they would throw away their silly party affiliations and agendas and get something accomplished. But they can never agree on anything and therefore little gets accomplished. Meanwhile the people suffer and the country heads closer to disaster.

Whats visitinvasion doing PRing some political guy in here. I think that the reason why these politicions cant do the jobs is because they all come from middle class families and dont know what it is like to have to struggle a little in life. They don't realise how hard it can actually be for some people.

Dr. Ron Paul plans to change things for the better of the people instead of for the better of the corporations' bottom lines. www.RonPaul2009.com You want a real person, not a professional idiot in office? Dr. Paul is the man for the job.

All they care about are votes. That is why they make all these campaign promises than the never fulfill.
