Why does it seem like the majority of the lawmakers in our state and the ones we send to Washington, D.C. to represent us are so dysfunctional, uncompromising and egocentric? Do their apparent traits truly represent the voters that elect them? Very few of the hundreds of “private citizens” that I know have the personality disorders that too many of our lawmakers seem to exhibit.
Are we electing people unlike ourselves or do these “ordinary” candidates that are voted into office morph into self-centered-I’ll-do-anything-to-get-re-elected-office-holders once the final ballots are counted?
I’m disappointed, dismayed and disgusted with the entire lot of our state and federally elected officials. My disdain for the entire group can only be assuaged by voting against every incumbent in subsequent elections.
