Joe Van Nes: A Final Message

Joe Van Nes

I congratulate Bill Keating on his win. This letter is not aimed at him, just the system in general in which we all live. I hope Mr. Keating has the ability to stand up to special interests and keep the people in mind when he is tempted with money and power. I would also like to encourage him to look outside the box in his search for solutions and not be restricted by the status quo. I’m sure I speak for the entire district when I wish him the best of luck.

Moving on…

You know it’s election season when only “noncombat” troops remain in Iraq and “terrorists” start sending their last minute bombs in the mail from Yemen. Just like they assured us before the primaries, our army was leaving Iraq, the media spent the last days of the election talking about explosives which did not explode. Keep the fear alive, but at controllable levels and you can get the “sheeple” to vote for the “lesser of two evils” every time. I wonder what’s going to almost happen right before the next election.

I am sick of hearing about politicians who are tough on terror, tough on drugs, tough on crime, tough on anything but themselves…. Its time that we got tough on politicians. If we can’t trust the people who lead us then everything else becomes a secondary priority. We have a two party system that caters to itself and rewards politicians who do the wrong thing, while making it harder for honest people to get elected. The big question is how do we get rid of a two party system that everyone, including the people who work for it, acknowledges to be corrupt?
