Who Are You Kidding?

In response to the editorial, Where do they stand?” 5-18-17, I have to ask – Are you kidding your readers when you expect the Republicans in the House of Representatives and the Senate to take a stronger stand against the actions of President Trump? Come on! These are career politicians who do not do what’s right for their country or even their constituents. But they do do what is right for their own selfish interests to get re-elected. Actually, both Republicans and Democrats in Congress are alike – they just want power, fame, and money.

When is the Baltimore Sun going to realize our country will never get better until we put a leash on the rein of the career politicians. As I have said over the course of the last 10 years our country will continue to be messed up as long as the phony career politicians are allowed to remain in office.

All we need to do is look at our own home front – how the career politicians have messed us up. How long will we have to continue witnessing the horrendous shootings occurring every day in our city before a politician has the guts to call out the National Guard in Baltimore City? There is also the fiasco with the Baltimore City public school system that is in shambles. But, rather than tell the truth, the career politicians in Baltimore City are allowed to evade the truth and pander to the governor and state legislature to obtain more money to be put into the public school system with the net result of squandering taxpayers’ money.

The best proof for the wreckage the career politicians are causing lies in one question. Are we any better off today than we were 10 years ago? I don’t think so. I wish the powers to be on Calvert Street would stop defending the career politician phenomenon. Their narrative is simply not working.

It is hard to dispute that people are fed up with career politicians and that‘s why Donald Trump was elected.
