I have worked with politicians in Washington for 30 years. It has never been as bad as it is today. There is nobody worthwhile to even speak to anymore. I really see no difference between Republican and Democrat. People who think impeaching Obama would actually accomplish anything do not realize that there are people in the bureaucracy that pull the strings. We have lost all representation. This is part of the reason why we must crash and burn. Hoover said when government gets enraged it burns down the barn to get the rat. In this case, the barn is infested and there is no single rat. There would have been no difference had Romney been elected or McCain. Any career politician does as he is told. The same bills would have been submitted by the same people and the vote would have been the same. That is the REAL story about Washington. Politics is but a delusion to keep us occupied believing we have a voice when we do not. It is all the same.
Here is Senator McCain, a Republican who claims to be against raising taxes. Had he been elected, there would have been no difference from Obama. This man voted to imposed the taxation on the Internet and is proud of it. Here is his email to one of our readers.

Thank you for contacting me regarding S. 743, the Marketplace Fairness Act. I appreciate knowing your views on this issue.
On May 7, 2013, I voted to support the Marketplace Fairness Act because this bill will ensure that sales tax is collected on all purchases, regardless of whether in a brick and mortar retailer or through internet transactions. As such, states and localities will have a mechanism to collect sales tax already owed by consumers making transactions over the internet. This bill does not create a new tax for consumers, it simply will enable states to require online retailers to use software to collect taxes at the time of transaction. This bill does protect small online businesses, as it exempts retailers with less than $1,000,000 in out of state sales from collecting tax on internet sales.
Thank you again for writing to me. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other comments or questions.
