Who are to be the electors?

The following words were taken from the Federalist Papers #57, written by either Alexander Hamilton or James Madison, but the point is they need to be read by every voting American.

Who are to be the electors of the federal representatives? Not the rich, more than the poor; not the learned, more than the ignorant; not the haughty heirs of distinguished names, more than the humble sons of obscurity and unpropitious fortune. The electors are to be the great body of the people of the United States. They are to be the same who exercise the right in every State of electing the corresponding branch of the legislature of the State.

For too long we as American’s have let big money persuade us as to who to vote for even when it’s not in our best interest. The politicians of both parties crank up their propaganda¬†machines each and every election. Both sides crank out the lies about each other and do their best to confuse us as voters.
This has to stop, we know there not going to stop spinning the lies so we have to stop believing them. We need to elect common citizens, people who suffer as we do, who work, live and play with their families as we do with ours. The time for electing the rich and affluent is over all it’s gotten us is more debt then we can pay and representatives who care more about the money they can make in Washington than the job there suppose to do. We need people who don’t need to make a deal to get a good law passed, we need elected officials who work together for the good of the people not the good of the party. We as American’s need to retake control of our destiny and our House of Representatives and our Congress. The time has come for the professional politicians to be retired. So remember in the next voting cycle, to VOTE and don’t vote for the money.
