We The People

This is from a post my husband has on his FB page. Thought I would share with everyone

“…It’s not just this current crop of leaders and it’s not just Democrats.
Corruption and lying has become a bipartisan effort and we can only blame ourselves.

One hundred and twenty-nine years ago, President James Garfield brilliantly p

redicted the situation we now find ourselves in: “The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption.”

We need to hold our elected officials accountable for their actions. Are we a country that stands for greed and corruption or do we still believe in antiquated ideas like honesty and integrity?

If you don’t want these things happening in your name, it’s time to speak up and say enough! Because if we don’t demand accountability, if we don’t require that corruption be met with consequences, then we are just as complicit in it as they are.”
