Yes, I am saying that even if all of the present elected officials were voted out of office, a lot of what goes on right now, would just happen again. The "underground" system of power is very much alive and well in this state.
Politicians make deals, the people who have hidden power in this state would make deals with the newly elected officials to continue to line their pockets with our tax dollars.
I am not ignorant nor impressed with a person who says they are a lawyer, doctor, or sheriff. I know too many of them.
We have a very closed society here in the hills, we are seemingly trusting and easily lead, but things are not what they seem here.
Lots of people in this state have learned to play games and work the system. Something tells me you have never been to one of these meetings.
I know about decaying water systems, no sewer service, poor roads, mud slides that occur over and over again in the same place, lottery money that is ear-marked for the elderly but only a special bunch really benefit from this money. I know how a lot of the socalled social improvement programs work in this state. We have a well known program less than 6 miles from my home, I have tried for years to have certain irregular situations investigated, but nothing changes. So now, if I feel like doing a good deed, or helping someone in the community out, I do it quietly and without notice or knowledge.
I did not participate in the nurses march today, and why, because it will not change a thing. This bill will pass, but as someone closely working with this issue stated, there is more here than meets the eye.
Like my granddad used to say, "we used strangers and politickers for target practice ". Some people would think he had a good idea .
