Excerpt One

Voters are incredibly ignorant and know little about our form of government and how it works. Hell, I’m lucky if my constituents know my name and what I do. . .But that’s OK. It’s far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave nothing but instant gratification.

Excerpt Two

My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. That’s why fundraising takes precedence over everything. (Unfortunately) it’s so time-consuming I seldom read any bills I vote on. Like most of my colleagues, I seldom know how the legislation will be implemented, or what it’ll cost.

Excerpt Three

We spend money we don’t have and blithely mortgage the future with a wink and a nod. Everything’s for the here and now. Screw the next generation. . .It’s all about immediate publicity, getting credit now, lookin’ good for the upcoming election.”
