This may come as a bit of a surprise to a lot of people.
No matter where you are in this state or in this country, big city or small, there are only two politicians in this country. Let's explore who represents you.
The first politician, Senator, Congressman, State Rep or City Councilor's name is Mr or Mrs "Gotcha". This politician looks at the lay of the land, sees something or hears something that is said and blasts that idea as being bad and only pandering to some special interest group that everyone represents but no one admits. This politician is one that at anytime will tell you---"your idea is bad and I exposed it --I gotcha."
This person is more apt than not to spout whatever the popular political line is.
The second politician, Senator, Congressman, State Rep or City Councilor's name is "Igotta".
This politician I believe has the best interests of his hometown, city or state in mind.
Senator Igotta is always thinking and asking questions about how they can make things better.
Senator Igotta is always one to say "Igotta an idea and should we talk more about it?"
When Senator Igotta comes up with his idea, Senator Igotcha won't like it.
They will expose that idea as only being applicable to come special interest--- Igotcha.
The two sides although working in the same political body don't get along and will never get along.
And, there are many voters who look at what is going on and say to themselves that they don't want to get along.And things will never change.
They won't change until Senator Igotta gets more to go after Senator Igotcha. It won't change until everyone understands why they are able to represent people.
It is because people entrusted them with their votes."Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
President Obama said that.
What kind of a politician do you have working for you?
Igotta or Igotcha?
