Letter: We need to clean house and create a brand new government

May 6, 2013 

To all politicians: We the people, to whom you owe your position, no longer trust or believe you. Beginning with the president, the House of Representatives, the Senate and ending with our local government, you have all let us down. 

Years of broken promises, unfulfilled commitments, back room deals, secret meetings, excessive travel and vacations and downright lies have created a very jaded constituency. You continue to promise, yet fail to deliver. You continue to dance around the truths in order to advance your secret agendas. No term limits in some cases have provided you the opportunity to create incredible personal wealth while we the people are struggling paycheck to paycheck.

 Yes, we need government — but we need to clean house first.

— Eric Olenick
