Bullshit on Capital Hill

So this is supposed to be the land of the free, right? We're (Okay, the 18+'s, but you know what I mean) supposed to elect political figures, who are decent people, and they represent our interests, right? Whelp, it doesn't happen that way. They just support the interests of the highest bidding group, usually big businesses. They get richer by standing on the adult's heads. And then us- the <18's, we get bullshitted with all this stuff to make us a good worker for big businesses. Instead of representing our interests, they represent their bank account's interests, and earn a great deal of interest because of the shit-ton of money in their account. They're worse than babies. At least babies are brutally honest. Politicians are brutal and dishonest. And the sad thing is, It'll never change. The old guys will continue to have a monopoly on congress and pass bills that favor their pockets.

Re: Bullshit on Capital Hill

Direct democracy will always eventually result in the oppression of the minority by the majority. All we can do for now is elect competent people who will represent our interests, or at least, whoever's closest to that. It doesn't matter whether you vote for a liberal, a conservative or whatever. Just make sure your vote goes to someone competent.

Don't forget people have to be strict and take no bullcrap from their elected officials either instead of watching Jersey shore all the time.
Be honest local officials always work best as they have to see what they rott and its easier to lynch them.
