Economic Chasm between us and our next President.

I always hope to support the president candidate I can most identify with. When I compare how these people live I realize a Reality Check. When we talk about ol' Abe Lincoln reading by candle in a log cabin, wow, times have changed. We have become an elitist country for sure. Or should I say at least our leaders.

But, Richard...they feel your pain!

Well Fred, somebody seems to have felt yours. Thats why you have the government assistance programs that you depend upon arriving around the 1st of the month.

Lincoln also walked seven miles to return a library book.

The founding fathers were all rich, and they designed the government to keep them that way, and to have the common folk do all the work. Some things never change. Religion and politics are simply tools that were invented by the rich and powerful to keep them rich and powerful, and to keep the rest of us poor and brainwashed.

My dad told me when I was young, "be a lawyer or a preacher, that's where the moneys at!"

I became a mill worker. Sorry dad.
