TESTING SENIORS’ APPETITE FOR POLITICS

Jun 27th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

With all the blatantly ugly shenanigans going on politically in every arena, do you seniors have little to no appetite for politics in these months leading up to November? The indifferent exclamation of “who cares” about seems to say it. There is so much rough shod treatment of the American public. There is little respect shown to the voter. There is almost no regard for those who elect those who disregard so readily. Is it going to make any real difference when the election season finally ends that we paid attention? If so the difference may be that matters only get worse, elected “officials” only more insensitive. There are a few left. To name one, Bernie Sanders, who still tries to stand up for the self interest of the American public. There aren’t many who demonstrate that statesmanship is still alive and well.
