    “What kind of country have we become?” she said. “These truckers are not one party. They span the spectrum. What bonds them together is, they did everything right. They’ve been betrayed by their government. ... If we don’t protect them, who do we protect?”

    Sad truth is nobody cares about anyone but themselves today. Like governor Walker says " divide and conquer ".

    So you trust Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders? The only person who has your best interest at heart is

    YOU!

    The politician that helps me, is the one I'm voting for. That's what it has become. Politicians, or political parties buying votes.
    Kinda like how Jimmy Hoffa and the Teamsters Union started out back in the 1930's.

    Mr. Mud, that is exactly what I have been told in D.C. We have to let the politicians know we can put them out of office if they do not help us. Even at that we can still be blindsided. Good Luck.
