I promise your wants and even more,
I will but vote it, once on the floor.
Please elect me and I'll take care of you,
Til' I'm in office and then we are through,
Perhaps I'll vote true, but first I'll get mine,
And vote for the lobbyist time after time.
Untold riches and even a plane,
Only to sell my country - straight down the drain,
No matter the party we're all the same,
Liars, and cheats for it's only a game,To pass bad laws, and not even read,
except for ones self, what is the need,
The pay is so small, but I needn't a care,
For I will surely become a multi-millionaire.
I'm am the leader of all of my people,
But they are so dumb, nothing but sheeple.
They'll do what I say and love me galore,
But deep down inside I'm only a whore.

Roland Louis Hansen: Basically, most people are the same as are the subjects of this poem. Politicians do represent the people, that is to say that poiticians are not any different than the vast majority of people. Fact: Most people lie, cheat, sin, are egotists being self-absorbed and self-centered. I think people who bash politicians are transfering their own feelings of guilt onto politicians; that is a whole lot easier to do than to admit their own short-comings.

Roland Louis Hansen: Not enough of a difference to make a distinction.Jimbo Diehl: I beg to differ. A scumbag albeit a part of society (I totally disagree that most people are scumbags, in fact it is a small group compared to the entire population) does not force himself onto the entire population as something he is not. It takes a special loser to do that without one shred of conscience. The lowest of low. A politician!

Roland Louis Hansen: I have run for office on 8 occasions and won 3 elections of those 8. I consider myself a politician; you consider me "the lowest of the low." I notice, Jimbo, that you are fond of name-calling. It is my opinion that when people stoop to name-calling, it is because they cannot debate or discuss things intelligently.

My bashing makes me a scumbag. I am free to bash scumbag politicians as I wish. Although they're trying to take away that right as we speak. You're free to call me names as well, but the mountain of evidence against politician falls on my side of the argument. You should be embarrassed to associate yourself with these ilk destroying our country!

Roland Louis Hansen: Feeling a bit defensive, Jimbo? Think that taking the offense is a good defense. I never stooped to name-calling. I did not use or infer the word scumbag. That is your choice of words to describe politicians, me included. I started nothing; I commented on your poem that clearly bashed politicians, plain and simple. It seems to me that you are being hostile and aggressive in your apparent hatred of people with whom you disagree.

Roland Louis Hansen: Truth is truth. However, you failed to be specific when you simply wrote, "You initiated the use of both of those words."
Now then, you need to re-read the entire statements and place them in the context in which they were used rather than extrapolating and spinning the use of those words to suit your own preconceived misconceptions.
And now, I shall take my leave and write no more in this message thread. I do not argue for the sake of arguing as you seem to do as you also seem to take so much pleasure and glee in doing so. I enjoy discussions; I enjoy debates. I do not get my jollies by engaging in malicious dialogues as appears to be your focus.
I suspect you will respond with something inane so you can have the last word. Fine. Do your thing.

Someone needs to step up and serve on these school boards and other elected offices. Also, don't forget your best friend Marilyn Mount Kocevar and her service to the community!

Judy Rosenberg Hansen: I find your lack of a good response to me as typical of someone who has not thought enough before putting fingers to the keys. Also, as a poet (used loosely) you must know that your readers will take your words and interject them into their own lives. That's part of what poetry is all about! Creative Writing 101Jimbo Diehl: In "my" opinion I feel most people reading my poem would associate it with members of our three branches of government residing in the cesspool we call Washington. If you felt the poem was on a personal level so be it. I have stated before my poems mean things in my mind. You pull from the poem your own thoughts and your own feelings. Ie don't shoot the poet for how "you" feel.
