Wood County reacts to Oklahoma tornado
Don: I find it more than just a little disturbing that virtually all politicians and political organizations keep so many "secrets" from the public they are supposed to represent. It seems all to obvious that they hide the truth because it might prompt a negative reaction form the media and/or the public. People don't trust politicians for this very reason and I can't say I blame them. The lack of personal integrity and honesty seem to be prerequisites to becoming a member of a major political party and they will readily sell out if it is to their benefit. People who make a career of politics are just like any other career employees. They will do what is best for their career rather than what's best for their "employer". If we refuse to re-elect after two terms (just like the President) it would end career building and make them focus on what they were elected to do. We have the power of the ballot box and we must use it or we will continue to be marginalized by politicians that are more interested in helping themselves than helping others.
