Every day there seems to be new evidence pointing to a government that is becoming more and more corrupt. Most of our politicians lie and—during election session—simply repeat the same old promises that were given years past. As a nation, we wait in suspense to see if their promises are ever carried out, and we always seem to walk away disappointed when we are left high and dry…again.
Recently, Ocasio-Cortez proved that she is not only a liar, but she is also someone who has the ability to play on the emotions of the public. Photos were once taken of her crying as she supposedly watched children in a detainment facility behind a gate at the southern border. The photos showed her crying until she was hooked over from the pain! Everyone loved her for this photo because they thought it reflected her passion for the issue of immigration. Well, let’s just say this passion didn’t last too long. New photos surfaced that showed what was really going on and it wasn’t pretty. In the recent photos, Ocasio-Cortez can be seen looking through a gate at an empty parking lot. There aren’t any children around, and it was apparent that the photos were staged. So, all of those tears for what? This is a large part of the reason most people have very little faith in their government.
As a people, we are dying for someone to step up that isn’t just interested in saying things that we want to hear. We are waiting for someone who will be honest, even if it hurts. Additionally, we are tired of the same old, cookie-cutter candidates who simply repeat the same promises that the candidates gave prior to them. We want someone real… but then again… can’t really say that we are ready for that level of authenticity.
