I have a problem with very rich people running for President of The United States on campaigns claiming to represent the interests of those who are not so fortunate…. but here is Sanders, worth a couple of million dollars according to reports and Warren, worth more according to other reports, using first class fares on airlines and private jets when the rest of us probably have to settle for Red Eye flights or coach at best.
Somehow it just doesn’t feel right because I feel like there is an air of deception about the obvious separation between the haves and the have nots …. it is just a little discomforting to me to hear these people talking about how they will represent the interests of every class of American Citizen ….. I sincerely doubt that a lot of these people have the slightest clue as to how the average non-wealthy American lives their day to day lives ….. much less any idea of what the average Citizen hopes for, dreams of, longs for.
Yet, in order to be completely fair, I must also say that I am not in favor of having some dumb klutz who has never made anything of his or her life and who hasn’t got the proverbial pot to pee in representing us either.
So, I sense a kind of Catch 22 in the political situation here in America.
