So Much For “Draining the Swamp”

On the campaign trail, voters are used to hearing promises that may never come to pass once the election is done.

Back in 2016, you know who promised to drain the swamp. Instead of draining the swamp, it was refilled to benefit him and those around him.

Last week, Roger Stone was found guilty of obstruction, witness tampering and lying to Congress. He was facing three years in jail. When you know who pardoned Mr. Stone, it shocked no one.

He is the latest in a long line of associates who have been convicted and/or sentenced for illegal acts.

If one is judged by those who they regularly spend time with, then it would be logical to say that you know who surrounds himself with crooks and sycophants. They are more concerned with their needs than ensuring that the needs of the average citizen are met.

We need and deserve political leaders who recognize that their job is to serve the country, not the other way around.
