Bromides are abundant in the political arena as they give their boring and often fiction induced speeches for this and that. The sheer magnitude of their disregard for honesty and the ‘good of all’ seems to be non-existent the past couple of decades and does not seem to be getting better anytime soon. I find this extremely disenchanting.

My hope is that someday, we citizens of the United States, demand that our politicians be honest and forth coming; until then, the lies and pretenses will continue.

This is a great country; let’s keep it that way.
