One of the candidates running for office makes the high-sounding claim that if elected he will bring thousands of new jobs back to Kentucky. If so, it would be a miracle. All of our representatives have voted for the free-trade deal with Chile and Singapore. Just like all of the other free-trade deals voted in for both Democrats and Republicans, they benefit only the large corporations and will take jobs away from the working people.
If suppose if times get hard enough, such high-sounding promises will no longer be believed by the gullible voters.
It's a pity that some good, at least halfway honest, independent candidates can't throw enough money together to amount to a hill of beans.
We are drowning in politicians. What we need are statesmen who will not break their oath of office as soon as they are elected.
